Episode Summary

Jairzinho - Brazil, 1970
Expectations were high for Jairzinho going into the 1970 World Cup -- despite two broken legs in recent years. But few could have imagined the performance Brazil's right winger: seven goals in the tournament, one in each of Brazil's matches. He remains the only player to score in every round, including the final. His last goal came in the 71st minute, again from the creativity of Brazil's maestro, Pelé. Rushing into the box from the right, Jairzinho timed his pace perfectly to land at the receiving end of Pelé's header.moreless
