The Final match of Group 2 of the 1982 FIFA World Cup saw West Germany take on Austria in the city of Gijón, Spain.
Because of a quirk in the World Cup point system, the result of the game meant that…
1-0 or 2-0 to West Germany: Both West Germany and Austria advance to the next stage.
Draw, or Austria win: Austria and another team in their group – Algeria – advance, while West Germany are eliminated.
West Germany win by 3 or more goals: West Germany and Algeria advance. Austria are eliminated.
You can see where I’m headed, right?
