A brief record of World Cup blunder

The 1982 World Cup match between Germany and Austria seriously damaged the tournament, and Fifa, the organisation in charge, did nothing to stop it.

The 1982 FIFA World Cup football game between West Germany and Austria at the El Molinón stadium in Gijón, Spain, on June 25, 1982, is known as the “Disgrace of Gijón.” 

Pele Smashed in another World Cup Blunder In 1966, Brazil was again the hot favourites to win the World Cup but their opponents had targeted Pele as the man to bring down. Once Pele is out, they know that Brazil may also be out. 

Two-time winners and defending champions Brazil failed to advance to the quarterfinals after Pele was injured in the group matches.
