I was 5 for the 1978 World Cup but have vivid memories of it - I was already a massive football fan and a junior season ticket holder at Birmingham City, and international football was a novelty to me.

I do not remember anything about the politics at all, but then again the depredations of the Junta in 1978 were a) not well known in Britain at the time, b) not well reported (3 channels of course and not enough broadcasting time), and c) paled into insignificance compared to what was going on in the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain, which was both on our doorstep and potentially an existential threat.

The main takeaway from that World Cup was some curious refereeing in the Argentines' favour. Hungary finished with 9 against them and the red card for Toroscik in particular was a total joke. And the infamous Peru match, from which FIFA learned fuck all, permitting the Germans and Austrians to cheat four years later.

Oh, and also Menotti (Argentine coach) chainsmoking all the way through the tournament, and not smiling until the trophy was lifted.

I'll watch Canada's games for as long as they are in it but I'll just watch highlights of the other games, those that I have a modicum of interest in anyways.

I'm discouraged already. The US couldn't even beat 'The Whales'.

A huge upset as Saudi Arabia defeat Argentina 2-1. While it's been done before for a team to lose their first game and still win the tournament, it looks like Lionel Messi's last chance to win the biggest prize could be over.

No goals in the next two games. Big screw up by Poland missing a PK against USA South.

My wife had surgery yesterday so I was able to watch 3 matches while I was waiting for her to wake up. France is good.

Seems that the unglamorous matches aren't producing any goals with Morocco-Croatia also goalless.

Huge shock after Germany dominated the first half.
