- World Cup 1978 -

The 1978 FIFA Football World Championship was hosted by Argentina. Holland made it to the final of the World Cup for the second time in a row, but with Johan Cruyff and Willem van Hanegem declining to take part in the tournament the team lacked the magic of the 1974 side. Once again the Dutch lost out to the home team, with Argentina clinching an extra-time victory and Mario Kempes crowning himself the hero of his nation.
