Argentina 82 World Cup football shirt and kits
Argentina's first round group C contained Belgium, Hungary and El Salvador. Argentina played Belgium in the opening game of the 1982 cup in Barcelona. The Catalan crowd was eager to see their new world-record signing Diego Maradona in action, but it was Belgium's Erwin Vandenbergh who stole the show with his matchwinning goal after the hour - the first goal scored in a World Cup opener since 1962. Coach Menotti was criticized for keeping faith in too many of the champions from 1978, but Argentina picked themselves up and progressed alongside Belgium despite the defeat. Menotti's men had nothing in store though when they came up against Italy and Brazil in Phase 2. They finished both games with ten men.
