Brazil had been so close yet so far — finalists in 1950, third place in 1938, however must be content seeing their South American opponents Uruguay lift the trophy on two events as of now.
In any case, 1958 was distinctive. Their 1958 teamsheet had two names — a 17-year-old called Pele and the splendid Garrincha who, shockingly it must be stated, was not picked in the squad which went to the 1954 World Cup. These two, together would totally change the elements of how Brazil assaulted. Their time had at long last come.
Brazil were attracted an extreme gathering close by England, Austria and Hungary in a World Cup which will likewise be associated with one which Italy missed, Wales played in (for the main time) and Israel practically met all requirements for without winning a match.
A non-European group had never won a World Cup on European region and this was a significant noteworthy accomplishment in those days. Brazil's mentor Vicente Feola never truly put stock in playing Pele (a knee harm implied his first WC diversion was the third gathering match versus Soviet Union) and Garrincha together however a 0-0 draw against a debilitated England side (because of the Munich debacle) likely constrained him to play them both — and kid how they played.
While Garrincha was at that point prevalent, Pele utilized the greatest stage to exhibit his ability to the world — scoring the victor in the quarterfinal against Wales, a cap trap in the semis versus France — a group which included stars Just Fontaine and Raymond Kopa — and a twofold in the last against hosts Sweden. His objective in the last (video underneath) made him the most youthful scorer in a World Cup last at 17 years old years and 249 days and is one of the best in World Cup finals history.
