1982 FIFA World Cup Final

Attendance 90,000

The 1982 FIFA World Cup Final was a football match contested between Italy and West Germany. It was the final match of the 1982 FIFA World Cup tournament and was played on 11 July 1982 at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid.

After a scoreless first half during which Antonio Cabrini fired a penalty wide of goal, Paolo Rossi scored first, heading home a bouncing Claudio Gentile cross from close range. Marco Tardelli then scored from the edge of the area before Alessandro Altobelli, at the end of a counterattack by winger Bruno Conti, made it 3–0. Italy's lead appeared secure, encouraging Italian president Sandro Pertini to wag his finger at the cameras in a playful 'not going to catch us now' gesture. Breitner scored for Germany in the 83rd minute but Italy held on to claim their first World Cup title in 48 years, and their third in total with a 3–1 victory.

Coming after their 1934 and 1938 victories, Italy had now drawn level with record champions Brazil. Italy's Paolo Rossi won the Golden Boot as the tournament's top goalscorer, and the Golden Ball as the tournament's best player (awarded for the first time). Captain and goalkeeper Dino Zoff at forty also became the oldest player to win the World Cup.
