9 July ~ Holland play Argentina in what will be the two teams' fifth match at a World Cup. In 1978, with Argentina hosting, they met in the final. The match almost didn't happen after Argentina came out onto the pitch late and then protested against a plaster cast on Rene van de Kerkhof's wrist. When the game eventually got underway an 82nd-minute header by Dick Nanninga cancelled out Mario Kempes's first-half opener and took it to extra time. First Kempes and then Daniel Bertoni scored to win Argentina's first World Cup.
