I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

What ties are allowed? ;D Then here's another.

Italy 1-Cameroon 1 (1982)

Italy scored in the 60th minute and Cameroon responded in the 61st!

Obviously I'm kidding (re: biggest upset) but, considering that Italy drew each of its group matches (as did Cameroon) and then went onto to win the WC after narrowly qualifying out of group (over Cameroon!), I like the plot.

Sure Italy beat Argentina and Brazil en route to the trophy but what lucky bastards they were to make it to the second round. This was a Cameroon playing in its first WC! Paolo Rossi at this stage of the tournament was a rehabilitated footnote.

Fordy, it wasn't South Korea. As posted by capodetutticapi, it was NORTH Korea - now of nuclear fame - that featured. They won 1-0.

From today's perspective, another remarkable aspect of that match is that no bookings were issued. (I almost used the term 'carded', but reds and yellows didn't come into effect until the '70 WC.)
