Background: West Germany beat Holland 3-1 on Wednesday night (20 December) in a friendly soccer international played at Dusseldorf.
SYNOPSIS: Playing with a bright orange ball on a snow-covered pitch, Holland, in red shirts and white shorts, kicked off and retained possession.
Holland, playing from left to right, built up an attack which broke down for West Germany to pour upfield along the right flank. The two countries contested the World Cup Final, in 1974.
Thirty-two minutes into the game, Rummenigge gathered a crossed ball, and scored for West Germany. Holland immediately went all out to equalise, but three were no more goals in the first half.
The second goal came from a header by Fischer in the fifty-seventh minute, and West Germany had run into a two-nil lead.
Holland were not deterred by the score-line, and strove to bring a competitive edge back into the game. They did when the third goal came along - another header, but this time from La Ling of Holland.
With five minutes to go, a West German attacker was brought down just outside the penalty area. A free kick was given, and Bonhof gave West Germany the final convincing margin - three goals to one.
