Back in 1986 when Germany have won the World Cup part 1: Hold your nerve: ยูฟ่าเบท this is going to be excruciating. It’s 10.36 pm; Germany have won the World Cup. Let’s see how this thing worked back in 1986 when these sides, or rather Argentina and West Germany, met in the final of the Mexico World Cup.

On that occasion, Argentina were the winners, 3-2. Broadcast live on satellite relay, the television pictures have a watery chromatic quality that dates them, but are just about recognizable as part of the same football universe.

The game has a global audience, but one restricted in number and reach by the absence of television sets and signals in much of the rural, global south, especially China and India. The presence of some of the usual corporate suspects on the tatty perimeter boards tells us that commercialization ยูฟ่าเบท has arrived – indeed, FIFA and the World Cup, under then President João Havelange, were in the vanguard of the process – but compared to today the money is small change.

There is still space, with many standing, ufabet for 114,000 people and just a few VIP tribunes. Replica shirts are almost entirely absent amongst the crowd. In keeping with this stripped-down aesthetic, there has been no closing ceremony and the PA is, mercifully, so poor that the crowd can hear itself.

But what really separates this moment from our own is what happens when the final whistle blows. Within seconds, members of the crowd are negotiating the limited barriers and skirting the moat and blocks of police that edge the pitch. One by one, then in twos and ufabet threes or more, they vault the advertising boards and head out onto the green. Some of the bolder Argentinians throw their longstriped banners over the edge of the first tier of the stands, then abseil down to pitch level before running out onto the grass.

A scrum of photographers, officials, substitutes, fans and men with banners coagulates around the Argentinian players. One man, sporting a foam World Cup attached to a white baseball cap, runs in a zig-zag, waving a Mexican flag. Click here to read more story.
