[*] this win against West Germany, the so-called "Wunder von Córdoba",
    obtained mythical status in Austrian football history; while it was
    the first win by Austria in a World Cup tournament against their 
    unloved neighbours ("Piefkes"), after distressing losses in 1934
    and 1954, it is usually forgotten that the match was of very limited
    interest: Austria had already been eliminated, and while West Germany
    would have reached the third place match in case of a draw, their
    chances to defend their 1974 title were more than remote: they
    needed a draw in the parallel match between the Netherlands and
    Italy (which didn't happen) coupled with a 5-goal win against Austria
    to reach the final
[!] this match entered World Cup history as the "Schande von Gijón";
    most blame should go to FIFA as in spite of the obvious lessons from
    the previous World Cup in Argentina, where the hosts had known the
    exact number of goals to score against Peru in order to reach the final
    because Brazil's match against Poland had already finished before they
    started, FIFA had not enforced the final group matches to be played
    simultaneously; because of this, Algeria, who had earlier beaten West
    Germany 2-1 in one of the all-time World Cup upsets, and had beaten
    Chile 3-2 (after a 3-0 lead at half-time which would have all but
    mathematically ensured their passage had they managed to hold on to it)
    just prior to this match, became the victims of the arrangement struck
    after West Germany took an early lead (after 11 minutes); because a 
    victory by the West Germans by 1 or 2 goals guaranteed both teams a
    place in the next round, the twenty-two actors took very great care 
    not to create any real scoring opportunities after about half an hour
    of play (only Schachner claims not to have understood during the match
    what was going on - he must have been the only one on the planet)
