- World Cup 1974 -

The 1974 FIFA Football World Championship was hosted by West Germany. Fielding great players like Beckenbauer, Breitner, Müller and goalkeeper Maier, the hosts were the pre-tournament favourites. But it was the Dutch, coached by Rinus Michels, and featuring such players as Cruyff, Van Hanegem, and Neeskens, that took the tournament by storm with their 'total football' style of play. In the final against West Germany things went disastrously wrong, with the West Germans staging a fightback after going down a goal, and ending up lifting the cup after all.
