Björn Nordqvist’s 109th international appearance broke the world record held until then by Bobby Moore of England.

Zico scored what many thought was the matchwinner when he headed in from a corner in the 90th min and 05 seconds. However referee Clive Thomas blew the whistle when the ball was in mid air before Zico made the contact. Brazil fielded an official protest on Mr. Clive Thomas\’ refereeing. Although their protest was rejected, however Clive Thomas never refereed a finals match again. (link: )
