6 yellow cards were issued in this match, which was a record number until the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, 3 of them were because of time wasting of Argentinian players. With this defeat, the German manager, Franz Beckenbauer gained the rather unwanted distinction of having lost a World Cup final as both a player and a manager. (Beckenbauer had played in West Germany's defeat in 1966.)
