Episode Summary

Roberto Boninsegna - Italy, 1970
Facing one of the best teams ever assembled, and on the heels of a 4-3 extra-time thriller in the semis, Italy could be forgiven for being a goal down in the 18th minute. But Brazil's ultimate 4-1 victory was not always a foregone conclusion. Twenty minutes after Pelé's headed goal, striker Boninsegna was gifted a goal after an uncharacteristic lapse in Brazil's defense. Clodoaldo lost the ball (and three other defenders lost their footing), and Boninsegna pounced, putting the squads on even terms just before halftime.moreless
