For the second World Cup in a row Argentina and Germany played the final match, but this time the European team would get the title with a non-existence penalty that the Mexican referee Codesal invented with just 5 minutes to go in the second half.

The biggest deception was suffered by Italy, the host team that could not arrive to the final game after being defeated by the weakened Argentina in a penalty definition in the semifinals.
