Football photo of the day…


This picture comes from the 1978 World Cup final. Tonight’s semi-final between Argentina and Holland will be a repeat of that fixture but hopefully it will be slightly less controversial.

This final was won by Argentina but not without incident. The Dutch accused the Argentines of using dirty tactics in getting the match kick-off delayed by protesting about a bandage that one of the Dutch players was wearing. In an ill-tempered match that went to extra-time the Argentinian team won 3-1.

Maybe Holland will use that to inspire them to victory tonight?
