A few recommended links for those who may want to find out more ...
Details of all games in the 1978 World Cup, text only (mainly in English):
FIFA site 1978 World Cup page:
The Orange Pages, a vast collection of information about Dutch football, including all World Cup campaigns, and forward links to all major Dutch club sites:
The Dutch soccer team Homepage, facts and figures:
Dutch footballers of the past:
The Animation Factory, from where most of the animated flags were obtained:
Everything you could ever want to know about football stadiums around the world,
and the source of the Estadio Mendoza picture, for which my thanks:
Please also visit my site dedicated to the 1974 Dutch World Cup team:
The Links page on this site contains several items which should also be of interest to fans of the 1978 team. The site also contains a Guestbook.
In one respect, the 1978 World Cup was far superior to its predecessor:
the official FIFA video, in spite of the unimaginative title "Argentina Campeones",
is actually not at all bad, at least compared to the awful 1974 effort.
You do get to see a lot of football being played, and most of the important games
are shown in some form or other, with most (though by no means all)
of the clichés which usually spoil football videos from this period mercifully absent.
I would of course be grateful for any correction on point of fact
in connection with the material on this site,
or in fact more or less any further information whatsoever.
