In 1984 Austria withdrew for financial reasons from Group C. Since the Netherlands and Liechtenstein had to play a preliminary round for that group, the Dutch FA proposed FIFA to skip the preliminary round and place both teams in Group C, but apparently FIFA didn't agree.

After Czechoslovakia, East Germany and the Soviet Union withdrew, the Netherlands, Italy, West-Germany, Spain and Denmark were put on the reserve list.

At the end first West-Germany and later Italy and Norway were invited, after Romania had declined.

According to the original drawing (see http://kranten.kb.nl/view/article/id/ddd%3A010378605%3Ampeg21%3Ap006%3Aa0094 ) Norway replaced Czechoslovakia, West-Germany replaced East-Germany , and Italy replaced the Soviet Union.
