========================================================

And so, after a pulsating 120 minutes of soccer in the pounding summer heat of Sevilla, both France and West Germany still stood deadlocked at 3-3. This following a frantic, extra half an hour in which no fewer than four goals were scored by the two sides. Thus, for the very first time in the history of the World Cup tournament, penalty kicks would be used to determine the outcome of a match.

Both France and West Germany were to send five players each to the spot. Whomever’s kickers converted more penalties after five rounds would punch their ticket to the 1982 Final in Madrid. Should the teams remain tied after the five rounds, the penalties would continue on a single round, sudden-death basis.

The French would shoot first.

(Bob Thomas/Getty Images) — West Germany sweeper ULI STIELIKE (15) of Spanish club Real Madrid hides his face in his hands after having his penalty-shot saved by the not-pictured French goalkeeper JEAN-LUC ETTORI of AS Monaco in the 3rd round of the famous 1982 World Cup semi-final shootout.

Stielike, who earned 42 caps (three goals) for West Germany, signed to play for Real Madrid in the summer of 1977 and, in all, would play eight seasons with 215 league appearances (41 goals) for the Spanish capital club.

Watching with his hands on his hips is West German goalkeeper TONI SCHUMACHER of 1.FC Koeln. Many feel Schumacher should have been sent off long before this stage by the man standing next to him, match referee CHARLES CORVER of Holland.

Schumacher would soon bail Stielike out with a fine save from French winger DIDIER SIX in the 4th round.

In the sixth round of penalty kicks — which opened the sudden-death portion of the proceedings — TONI SCHUMACHER dives to his right to block the blast of French defender MAXIME BOSSIS (4) of FC Nantes in the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

The French defender Bossis, who could not have been happy about Schumacher’s infamous collision with AS St. Etienne midfielder PATRICK BATTISTON fifteen minutes into the second half, has a look back at the notorious West German goalkeeper after having failed with his penalty kick in the 1982 World Cup semi-final.

Hrubesch appeared 21 times for West Germany and scored six goals, none of which, however, had the significance of his spot kick in Sevilla. (Bob Thomas/Getty Images)
