Spain 12 Malta 1. The best of the best, and best, the higher. Spain made one of the greatest stupidities that are remembered in football history. The selection came to Benito Villamarin with the obligation to win by 11 Malta goals or more if you wanted to qualify for the European Championship in France 84.
