    • 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
    • Pelé - Brazil, 1958
      0.0
      The man widely considered the greatest footballer in history came to international prominence as a 17-year-old at the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, scoring five goals during the tournament, including two strikes in a 5-2 win over the host nation in the final. Pele missed most of his country's World Cup-winning campaign in 1962 because of injury, then returned to lead Brazil to its third World Cup title in 1970. He scored the opening goal in the 1970 final -- a 4-1 win over Italy -- to give Brazil its third trophy.moreless
    • Mario Zagallo - Brazil, 1958
      Zagallo's 68th-minute goal in the 1958 final put Brazil up 4-1 against host Sweden in a 5-2 victory that gave the South American nation its first of five World Cup trophies. While 1958 would be known more for the 17-year-old Pele's emergence, Zagallo would go on to become the first of only two men to win the World Cup as player and coach when he managed Brazil to the 1970 title. As a member of his country's victorious squad in 1962 and an assistant coach for the national team that won in 1994, Zagallo has been associated with four of Brazil's champions.moreless
