13 13 FORWARD: Roberto Bettega (Italy)A versatile player capable of performing both in attack and in midfield, Bettega possessed numerous strengths that see him regarded as a true Juventus great. He was a fine goalscorer as well as a talented playmaker, with his position on the pitch moving further away from the opposition penalty area as he got older. He scored two goals at the 1978 World Cup, but unfortunately missed the 1982 edition – which Italy won – due to a knee ligament injury suffered whilst playing for Juve. 13 13 GOALKEEPER: Ubaldo Fillol (Argentina)Widely regarded as Argentina’s greatest ever goalkeeper, Fillol is also seen as one of the best glovesman to come from the South American continent. He played 58 times for his country, and spent the majority of his domestic career in his homeland with River Plate – although he did spend one season in Europe with Atletico Madrid. Fillol conceded just four goals in Argentina’s seven matches at the 1978 World Cup, and he impressively went the entire second round group stage without letting a single strike past him. 13 13 13 13 13 MIDFIELD: Rob Rensenbrink (Netherlands)Voted in the All-Star Team at the World Cups of 1974 and 1978, Rensenbrink was one of the Netherlands’ key players, but he didn’t actually play in his homeland. The largest spell of his domestic career was in Belgium, firstly with Club Brugge and then Anderlecht, where he helped their great team of the 1970s to 10 major honours – including the Cup Winners’ Cup on two occasions. He netted five times in 1978, but missed the opportunity for a sixth goal in the final seconds of the final against Argentina; with the game tied at 1-1, Rensenbrink’s shot hit the post and deflected wide, when a goal would have almost guaranteed a Dutch victory. Instead, the match went to extra-time, and Argentina scored twice to win the World Cup with a 3-1 victory. 13 DEFENCE: Berti Vogts (West Germany)A World Cup winner as a player and a European Championship winner as a manager, Vogts claimed further honours at domestic level with the great Borussia Monchengladbach side of the 1970s. The right-back was twice named Footballer of the Year in Germany, and he represented his nation on 96 occasions between 1967 and 1979. The 2018 World Cup is just around the corner, so talkSPORT.com are trawling through the archives to relive past tournaments.Today we are taking a look at the 1978 edition, won by Argentina on their home turf with a defeat of the Netherlands in the final.It was the second final in a row the Dutch had lost, having been beaten by West Germany in 1974, but they could do nothing about Mario Kempes; the forward was on fire in his homeland and netted twice in the final to finish the tournament as top scorer.Kempes was undoubtedly the star of the tournament, but who were the other key players in Argentina? The World Cup All-Star Team was selected to remember the best performers in 1978, and you can learn about the chosen XI below 1978 FIFA WORLD CUPHosts: ArgentinaChampions: ArgentinaRunners-up: NetherlandsThird place: BrazilFourth place: ItalyTop scorer: Mario Kempes (Argentina) – 6 goalsBest Player: Mario Kempes (Argentina)Best Young Player: Antonio Cabrini (Italy) DEFENCE: Alberto Tarantini (Argentina)Known on these shores for his short and tempestuous spell at Birmingham City, Tarantini was Argentina’s left-back throughout the World Cup. Cesar Luis Menotti, the Argentina coach in 1978, knew Tarantini well having selected him at the 1975 Toulon Tournament, when Albiceleste’s Under-23s won the gold medal. He spent the majority of his career in his homeland, playing for both Boca Juniors and River plater, but also spent one season with Birmingham just after the World Cup; it was not an enjoyable time in the West Midlands, with his most notable action when he went into the crowd and punched a fan. 13 MIDFIELD: Teofilo Cubillas (Peru)Generally accepted as Peru’s greatest ever footballer, Cubillas played 81 times for his country and helped them to the quarter-finals in 1970 and again in 1978. Cubillas was voted the best young player at the 1970 finals, and the playmaker ended the 1978 tournament as the joint-second highest scorer with five goals to his name. He possessed a venomous shot, and was the only player to score five goals in two different World Cups until Miroslav Klose repeated the feat in 2006. 13 DEFENCE: Ruud Krol (Netherlands)An incredibly versatile defender who could play anywhere along the backline or even in midfield, Krol spent the majority of his career with hometown club Ajax. A key figure in the ‘total football’ revolution, Krol won three consecutive European Cups with the Amsterdam club, but he lost successive World Cups in 1974 and 1978. Krol won 83 caps for the Netherlands, between his debut in 1969 and his final appearance in 1983. DEFENCE: Daniel Passarella (Argentina)Captain of winners Argentina, Passarella is regarded as one of the finest defenders to ever play the beautiful game. He won 70 caps for his country and was the only player to be selected in both Argentina’s 1978 and 1986 World Cup-winning squads, though he actually missed the latter tournament due to illness. A stalwart in Argentina’s backline and a talismanic figure for the nation, Passarella was also a prolific goalscorer for a defender; he netted 22 times for Argentina, and ended his club career with over 150 goals scored. 1978 WORLD CUP ALL-STAR TEAM 13 FORWARD: Mario Kempes (Argentina)The star of the 1978 World Cup, Kempes won the Golden Boot as top goalscorer – with six goals – and also claimed the Golden Ball, awarded to the best player at the tournament. The excellent forward was the perfect combination of strength, power and skill, and he was the only foreign-based player in Cesar Luis Menotti’s squad for the 1978 finals. He was playing for Valencia at the time, having left Rosario Central in his homeland a few years prior. With appearances for clubs also in Austria, Indonesia and Chile, Kempes’ career ended in 1996 with exactly 300 domestic goals scored, plus a further 20 netted on the international stage. MIDFIELD: Dirceu (Brazil)An attacking midfielder who played for 16 teams in a career that spanned 25 years, Dirceu represented Brazil 44 times and at three World Cups. He scored three times in 1978 helping his country to the bronze medal, with his final goal the winner against Italy in the third place play-off. Dirceu spent the first decade of his career in his native Brazil, before moving to Atletico Madrid and then a number of Italian sides, including Verona, Napoli, Ascoli and Como. FORWARD: Paolo Rossi (Italy)A Ballon d’Or winner in 1982 for his six goals that helped Italy to victory at that year’s World Cup, Rossi also played for Italy at the World Cups of 1978 and 1986, scoring a total 20 goals in 48 senior international appearances for the Azzurri. He established himself as one of the world’s best forwards in 1978 with three goals making him Italy’s top scorer at the World Cup, but Rossi’s most famous moment on a football pitch came four years later, when he netted a hat-trick against the Brazil of Socrates, Zico and Falcao to knock them out the finals as Italy went on to claim the famous trophy.talkSPORT is your home of the 2018 World Cup.
