Cheating Argies! Rob Rensenbrink was the best player in that tournament, and came within centimetres of winning the World Cup in the last minute!

The English created the game, the Dutch perfected it, the Brazilians have fun with it, the Argentinians give birth to talent and the Germans win World Cups.

What a bunch of girls these argentina players were. Came out 7 minutes later like little divas then complaining about someone’s cast. I wish holland won this game

The trainer of the dutch team was Ernst Happel, Austrian and former trainer of Feyenoord Rotterdam, Club Brugge and others.

Political prisoners, thousands of "diseappered". Argentinean dirty tricks, Peruvian national team bribed, Cruyff absent due to death threats to himself and family, Argentine squad on amphetamines, fixed matches, etc, etc, etc…

Netherlands last minute post hit, changed face of Dutch football for over a decade. They failed to qualify for the finals in 1982 and 1986.

Shame the Netherlands lost the final. They deserved to win it!
Argentina against Peru was one of the most blatent acts of bribery ever seen.
Shameful!

I think that if Holland had won that final, they may not have returned home alive… look what happened when they drove to the stadium where the final would take place… very intimidating…

The most rigged , fixed, and corrupt tournament in all sports history

At previous World Cups teams took to the field together,but in Argentina they changed things.The match against Peru was also fixed coz Brazil would have reached the Final instead of Argentina.

I hope Canada can at least get to the round of 16 in 2026

What a dick and a hater. "I wouldn't have said anything if I thought blah blah…" Yeah, you just wanted to have 1 dude's world cup dreams crushed by not being able to play. Argentinians seem to be some real creeps: Hand of God 1 & 2, this bullshit, biting, it goes on and on.
