Did You Know?
started football training on weekends off during filming of his previous picture Nighthawks
(1981). Stallone received training from England's World Cup winning goalkeeper, Gordon Banks
. Initially, Stallone paid little attention to Banks's advice as he didn't think the training was necessary, and recklessly threw himself around on the first day of filming the match. Eventually, he hit the ground so hard that he dislocated a shoulder and broke one of his ribs, putting him out of action for several days. When he returned, Stallone paid much more attention to what Banks was telling him, but still sustained a number of minor injuries over the course of filming, including another broken rib. After production was finished, Stallone commented that the experience had been harder than fighting in the Rocky movies. See more
During the match an injured POW player is taken off by stretcher and another player puts on a shirt to replace him. Substitutes were not introduced in this way until 1953; until that point, a "substitute" was a player who stood in for another who had failed to turn up for the game and players were not replaced once the match was underway.
