    Great article. Just one *tiny* correction – Rod Argent was the keyboard player with The Zombies. The singer was a guy called Colin Blunstone.

    Nice article, but I think you´ll find that Haiti only went a goal up against Italy in 1974, but they did not win the match, but got three goals put against them.

    Argentina were awarded the 1978 World Cup in 1966, a full 12 years before they hosted, not in 1968. The 1974, 1978, and 1982 Host countries were all selected by FIFA in 1966.
