    WEST GERMANY WON A PLACE IN THE WORLD CUP SOCCER FINALS IN MEXICO NEXT YEAR WITH A 3-2 WIN OVER SCOTLAND IN HAMBURG LAST NIGHT (WEDNESDAY). THE VICTORY CLINCHED FIRST PLACE FOR WEST GERMANY IN THE GROUP SEVEN QUALIFYING LIST.

    THE VISITORS STUNNED THE CROWD OF 72,000 BY TAKING THE LEAD AFTER ONLY THREE MINUTES. WINGER JIMMY JOHNSTONE SCORE FROM A CLOSE RANGE AFTER GOALKEEPER SEPP MAIER FAILED TO HOLD A HARD SHOT BY EDDIE GRAY.

    THE GERMANS GOT BACK ON LEVEL TERMS WITH A GOAL BY KLAUS FICHTEL IN THE 37TH MINUTE. THEN IN THE SECOND HALF, THEY WENT AHEAD FOR THE FIRST TIME WHEN GERT MUELLER BRILLIANTLY CONTROLLED A FREE KICK LAND SCORED WITH A WELL PLACED DRIVE. TWO MINUTES LATER, SCOTLAND'S INSIDE-FORWARD ALAN GILZEAN HEADED THE EQUALIZER AND THE VISITOR LOOKED SET FOR A DRAW. BUT IN A BREAKAWAY ATTACK, REINHARD LIBUDA SCORED THE WINNING GOAL IN THE 80TH MINUTE.
