When Germany showed unsportsmanlike


#1
Most people probably don't know about this but Algeria beat West Germany in their 1982 world cup clash. It was big upset at that time as nobody especially Germans believed that they can beat them.

Everyone was pretty sure that Germans would win just like that Pakistan/India Champions Trophy 2017 cricket match where everyone thought India would win easily.

But Algeria won and it resulted in one of the most disgraced and unsportsmanlike matches in football world cup history when Germany and Austria in their later group match deliberately didn't play fiercely once Germany had scored one goal as both teams were now in next stage eliminating Algeria in the process.

Check this video from that match where crowd is chanting in favour of Algeria.

Isn't this again some kind of FIFA rule? Or nobody took any action!?

Algeria did lodge official complaint with FIFA but FIFA said we cannot do anything because these teams didn't break any rules.
