Then, as you can see in this Colecovision-quality video, the two teams went back and forth, playing soccer like ping pong. (And then the lead on ABC's halftime show was, of course, that disallowed goal.)

Get thee to a television for the second half of this one. If it's half as good as the first was, it'll be twice as good as the majority of this relatively sedate World Cup.
