    World Football goes back in time to 1967 and '68 to relive an incredible chapter in football history. The Dallas Tornado World tour. A team of 18 young players went into some of the world's most difficult locations. For six months they travelled 25 thousand miles around Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and finally Central America. They played games in Saigon during the Vietnam War, nearly died at the hands of Greek/Cypriot terrorists, came face-to-face with Chinese militants and survived a riot in Singapore. It was an amazing World tour that will never be repeated again. The former Dallas Tornado players have reunited for a special programme to tell the story of that trip. Presented by Sean Wheelock.
