Product Description


In 1978 Argentina became the sixth country to win the celebrated World Cup.Led by Mario Kempes, the solid Argentineans would ultimately defeat the Dutch 3-1 in the final after extra time. The Dutch team was affected by the absence of their star player and inspiration, Johan Cruyff, who refused to travel to Argentina in protest of the military coup that had occurred in the country prior to the tournament The 1978 tournament was certainly not without its controversy. The Argentina against Peru clash is widely acknowledged as one of the most questionable results of all time. Because of goal difference Argentina needed to beat their Peruvian counterparts by four clear goals to progress into the next round. No mean feat when the Peru team had only conceded six goals in their previous five matches. However, the Peruvian goalkeeper, Ramon Quiroga, who was born in Argentina, proceeded to let six goals past him. The Argentineans went through to the next stage at the expense of arch rivals Brazil. Although losing to Peru and drawing with Iran will not be looked back on with fondness, the tournament is remembered by Scottish fans for the stirring display against the Dutch in their final group game. The Scots needed to win by three clear goals and although they won 3-2 it was not enough to progress, although the Archie Gemmill goal to make it 3-1 is regarded as the most famous in Scottish football history.
