1979 European Cup Final Bibliography.
The 1979 European Cup Final was a football match held at the Olympiastadion, Munich, on 30 May 1979 . Trevor Francis scored the only goal of the game seeing Nottingham Forest of England defeat Malmö FF of Sweden 1–0. The win represented a third successive victory for an English side in the European Cup after Liverpool's victories in 1977 and 1978. The competition had provided many great stories and had thrown up a final that no-one could have predicted when it had started the previous August.
Neither of the finalists being one of Europe’s major clubs, Munich’s Olympiastadion was far from full for the Final, and the game itself was something of an anti-climax. There was, however, one memorable story still to be told. Earlier in the season, Brian Clough had elected to spend the money that Forest had made from winning the league title in 1978 on a forward from Birmingham City. Clough made Trevor Francis Britain’s first £1 million footballer when he took him to Nottingham, but UEFA rules stipulated that he could not play European football for another three months. Therefore, the first game that Francis was eligible for was the final itself and, with Martin O'Neill injured and Archie Gemmill not selected by Clough, Francis was picked to play his first ever European club game, albeit out on the right wing. He scored the only goal of the night and secured his part in football history.
