Episode Summary

Alcides Ghiggia - Uruguay, 1950
Ghiggia almost single-handedly sent the nation of Brazil into spiraling depression when he scored in the de facto final of the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. The Selecao needed only a draw in the final group game to win the world title, and when the Brazilians went up by a goal, it looked like theirs. But Uruguay equalized at the hour mark and Ghiggia put the squad ahead in the 79th minute, wrong-footing the Brazilian keeper and tucking the ball into the near post.moreless
