the host Argentina as a very difficult host to the soccer world championship, since the country under a military dictatorship suffered (tortures and disappearing letting of regime opponents; Killings of prisoners without legal proceedings). In Germany, the WM for this reason was even discussedzu boykottieren, deshalb stand im Vorfeld bei der Berichterstattung der politische Aspekt in der Beurteilung des Geschehens oft im Vordergrund. The comment on the splendid opening celebration was also not synchronously coined/shaped to the picture rather politically then.

Certainly the WM should - similar as four years laterthe Falkland War - from view of the Argentine ruling powers the rule in the country stabilize. Contrary to the lost Falkland adventure the calculation also came up 1978, because Argentina organized a WM without serious incidents and became at the end of world champions. That some Argentine players and in particular the coachCésar Luis Menotti everything else as trailers of the dictators were (Menotti refused after the title gain the hand impact to the president), clouded the joy of the Obristen however.

cutting Germany and Austria

Germany off and Austria advanced both into the intermediate round of the last eight and met one another there in group of A. The jump under the bestTo four none of the two crews succeeded. The WM remembered nevertheless very differently in the memory of the two football countries, as a large success for Austria and a bitter failure for Germany, not least due to the play last for both teams, 3:2 - victory of the Austrians approximatelyGermany in Córdoba to 21. June 1978. This play became by the gate Hans Krankls in the 88. Minute decided, it sealed with it the German “disgrace of Córdoba “and solved in Austria collective joy-tumbles out.

The Rundfunkreportage attained lasting fame Edi of finger by 3:2: "...there Krankl comes into the Strafraum, shot, gate, gate, gate, gate, gate, gate. I becomes narrisch - Krankl shoots, 3:2 in for Austria. We busseln us off. 3:2 for Austria by a great gate of our Krankl. It overacted everything,Ladies and Gentlemen, and warten's still bisserl. Perhaps to Warten's still bisserl, then we can approve a Vierterl… “

the WM 1978 stood ourselves for the German crew from the beginning under unfavorable signs. With the championships coaches of the national team Helmut Schön and that had 1970-1976 DFB of four very successful tournaments in consequence behind itself and the failure experience, which coaches and functionaries could do, was not so much early sporty separating, but the partly successful rebellion of the players and after the WM 1974 ago against the federation. Such exposing thatGuidance should be avoided this mark, and this succeeded then also. However the sporty success goal behind the ideal of a disciplined, closed withdrew and “consents” crew. In the apron criticism became loud, because DFB and coach of the national team some outstanding, partly however uncomfortable player personalities not in the national teamto have wanted (like Franz basin farmer, Paul Breitner, Uli Stielike, Jürgen Grabowski, Manfred castle Mueller). Expectations of the fans were highly, there one in the year before on a South America journey in Argentina 3:1 and in Uruguay 2:0 won, as well as against Brazil a 1:1had obtained.

For strengthening the crew spirit the German players were met by the coach already early and for relatively long time in a training camp in the Argentine Outback, in a place named Ascochinga. The participants describe the there atmosphere as calmly, lethargisch and something oppressing. ToSupport of the crew among other things the knight cross carrier Hans Ulrich herd with approval of federation and coach the Trainingscamp a Visite, emigrated to Argentina, off.

The process of the WM up to the “final game” between Germany and Austria was quite different for both teams. Germany as title defenders had oneeasy Vorrundengruppe with Poland, Mexico and Tunesien get. It succeeded to Germany to win against Mexico, the worst crew of the WM, highly and otherwise over two tough 0:0 - undecided against Poland (opening play of the WM) and Tunesien into the intermediate round to come. There there were again two undecidedagainst the Netherlands (the best play of the German crew with this tournament, there one the 6:0 against Mexico, which cannot count worst crew of the tournament) and Italy, among them 0:0. Germany came with one victory and four undecided into the last play and hadagainst the Austrians still the chance, itself qualify for the last four too, whom were subject allegedly, for which an undecided would have been enough. Since Helmut Schön thereby was not content let he toward end of the play still on victory play.

For Austria against it already was the WM-qualification inSuccess been. Everything else was now an additional bonus, particularly Austria as an allegedly weak crew a difficult Vorrundengruppe with Brazil, Spain and Sweden had assigned gotten. It actually succeeded to switch Austria off one behind the other, over two knappe of victories Spain and Sweden. The crucial gate shot both marksHans Krankl. The knappe defeat against Brazil in the third play constituted nothing more. In the intermediate round Austria lost nothing more against the favorites the Netherlands and Italy and could thereafter no place under the best four more reach, had however against Germany to lose,separate only to win and achieved in this situation a historical success.
