Episode Summary

Dick Nanninga - Netherlands, 1978
A talented Netherlands team was appearing in its second consecutive World Cup final in 1978, after falling to host Germany in 1974. With the Dutch side down a goal to Argentina at the break, Nanninga came on as a substitute and headed a cross past keeper Ubaldo Fillol to even the match at 1-1 in the 82nd minute. The strike meant an extra 30-minute period was required to determine the champion, but Nanninga's and the Netherlands' hopes were dashed after two goals from Argentina.moreless
