World Cup 1978 - Day Twenty-Two

Thursday 22 June

With perfect timing, the musical Evita, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, opened last night in London with Elaine Paige, David Essex and Joss Ackland.

Meanwhile, the stage was set for the final – Argentina v Holland – neither of whom had won the cup before, while Brazil and Italy would be in the third place play-off. And four more teams packed their bags for the journey home – West Germany the most disappointed.

Group A
Argentina 5pts (8-0)
Brazil 5pts (6-1)
Poland 2pts (2-5)
Peru 0pts (0-10)

Group B
Holland 5pts (9-4)
Italy 3pts (2-2)
West Germany 2pts (4-5)
Austria 2pts (4-8)

Top scorers
Rensenbrink (Holland) 5 goals
Cubillas (Peru)
Kempes (Argentina) 4 goals
Luque (Argentina)
Krankl (Austria)
