Click to follow
Official razzmatazz comes to town on Sunday when the Washington Redskins and the San Francisco 49ers contest the seventh American Bowl at Wembley Stadium, kicking off at 6pm. The Redskins, winners of last season's Super Bowl XXVI who have not played overseas, and the 49ers are in their third week of pre-season practice and Sunday's game should reflect the extra polish. The legendary Joe Montana, the 49ers quarterback, returns at the age of 36 to lead his team after the elbow problems that dogged him last year. His opposite number, the talented Mark Rypien, had no such problems, finishing second in the quarterback rankings.

The stadium is situated on the North Circular road. Tickets: pounds 15, pounds 20 and pounds 25. Also available on day. Wembley box office: 081-900 1234.
