West Germany punched its ticket to the Final of the 1980 UEFA European Championships by finishing two points clear in a Group A at the final tournament held in Italy. This, of course, with a side completely rebuilt from the previous decade’s glory days featuring the superstar duo of sweeper FRANZ BECKENBAUER and goal-machine GERD MUELLER. Bayern Munich’s newest star striker, KARL-HEINZ RUMMENIGGE, scored the only goal of the game to enable the West Germans to extract revenge on Czechoslovakia for the 1976 Final lost on penalty kicks and Fortuna Duesseldorf forward KLAUS ALLOFS powered trainer JUPP DERWALL’s side over Holland with a hat trick before the goalless draw with Greece.

    it’s very obvious if any is gonna come will be from the boot of K.H Rummenigge. he’d 45 goals in 95 games.
