VIDEO: 1978 World Cup Final History: Mario Kempes ends Holland’s Quest


I remember listening to this game on the radio, waaay past bedtime. Denis Law was one of the commentators. Kempes was Argentina’s Maradona before Maradona.
Daniel Bertoni’s story is touching as well, although they shoulda left out the tango in this next video. I know, I know, the ball was called the Tango. That was the first “official” ball I ever had.

Watching these videos I remembered Ubaldo “El Pato” Fillol – the Argentinian goalie. My friends used to say he caught chickens as practice. Chickens?!
