“Commemorating the New York city blackout of July 1977, Umbro have created a special edition range of products for the New York Cosmos. The Cosmos Blackout range has been inspired by the moment that star defender Carlos Alberto Torres arrived in New York in 1977, in the midst of the blackout. In this video, Carlos’ recollections of the time are brought to life in this terrific animation.”
