FIFA World Cup 1982 Group 1

 

fifa world cup 1982 posterAll the matches in Group 1 were drawn with the exception of Poland's convincing win against Peru. This left Italy and newcomers, Cameroon, level on points in second place with an identical goal difference. Italy, who were widely criticised at home for their uninspiring performances, went through because they had scored one more goal than Cameroon.

Graziani's goal on the hour was immediately wiped out by M'Bida but the result, the best in Cameroon's history, was not enough to secure qualification for the next phase.
