The 1978 World Cup final, Argentina vs Netherlands, was controversial, as the Dutch accused the Argentines of using stalling tactics to delay the match. The host team came out late and questioned the legality of a plaster cast on René van de Kerkhof's wrist, which the Dutch claimed allowed tension to build in front of a hostile Buenos Aires crowd. Without doubt it was just one of many dubious home-team advantages instigated by the Argentines throughout the tournament. Once the match eventually started Mario Kempes opened the scoring for the hosts before Dick Nanninga equalized a few minutes from the end. Rob Rensenbrink had a glorious stoppage-time opportunity to win it for Holland but his effort came back off the goal post. Argentina won the final 3-1 after extra time, after Daniel Bertoni scored and Kempes, who finished the tournament's top scorer with six goals, added his second of the day. The Netherlands, because of the controversial game events, refused to attend the post-match ceremonies after the match ended having lost their second World Cup final in a row, both times to the host nation, after losing to West Germany in 1974
