FIFA World Cup 1978 Final Group Stage
Group A consisted entirely of European sides while the three South American teams wound up in Group B, virtually ensuring a Europe v South America final. Argentina played their matches in the evening, as they had throughout the tournament so they knew where they stood although this had not proved to be an advantage until the final Group B match. Their extraordinary result against Peru allowed them to overturn Brazil's goal difference advantage and qualify for the final and remains the subject of allegations of corruption. Brazil's coach, Cláudio Coutinho, later declared that his team were the moral champions of the tournament because, unlike Argentina, they had not lost a game.
