Going into the match, Brazil simply expected to attract to win the World Cup after beating Sweden and Spain 7-1, and 6-1 separately. They were sure of triumph with a large number of the neighborhood papers (the competition was held in Brazil), printing their triumph early. But Uruguay had different thoughts. 

Before a record horde of almost 200,000 in the Estadio do Maracana, Brazil went one-nil up after an objective from Friaca soon after half-time. Uruguay reacted by fighting against eminent loss with two objectives over the most recent a little ways from Juan Alberto Schiaffino, and Alcides Ghiggia. Pele, the football's first worldwide star separated in quite a while after the game. He would then win three of the following five World Cups. 

1966 – England beat West Germany 4-2

Held in England, behind the play of stars like Bobby Charlton and Bobby Moore, the hosts ended up in the last against the powerful West Germany. 

Also, right up 'til today it is quite possibly the most questionable matches in football and in the England-Germany contention. This is generally a direct result of one second in additional time. 

In the 101st moment Geoff Hurst hit a shot into the crossbar and down onto the line, to which Russian linesman Tofiq Bahramov governed it had gone too far to give the English a 3-2 lead. 

With time waning down, the Germans pushed each upfield. Britain at that point fixed the success with a break from Geoff Hurst who crushed the ball into the top corner to stamp a 4-2 success. This obviously can be recognized as Kenneth Wolstenholme's acclaimed editorial line, "They thoroughly consider its everything – It is currently!" 

1970 – Brazil beat England 1-0 

Brazil were the top choices for the competition, generally because of the reality they had Pele, Jairzinho, Rivelino, and Carlos Alberto. While England were the protecting heroes and were not expected to fight very well against the men dressed in yellow. 

Eventually, this match will be associated with two minutes pulled off by English geniuses Gordon Banks and Bobby Moore. The first was 'The Save'. Pele was prowling at the back post and headed a cross descending towards the base left corner of the England objective. It had all the earmarks of being an inescapable result, however by one way or another Banks had the option to jump and circle the ball around the post to deny the Brazilians. 

The other second once more, included an English star. The ball broke to Jairzinho on the conservative and the English safeguard was withdrawing. With Jairzinho spilling towards the peril zone, Moore planned his tackle consummately to deny one more Brazil assault. 

The English courage in safeguard didn't last with Jairzinho scoring the solitary objective on the 59th moment. Considering in all other games during the competition, Brazil scored three or four objectives, the English exertion merits acknowledgment. 

Be that as it may, Brazil were the best group at the opposition and would win the last 4-1 against Italy. They would likewise take sole ownership of the Jules Rimet prize, subsequent to winning the Cup for the third time. 

1970 – Italy beat West Germany 4-3 

Truth be told, Italy played one of the best World Cup coordinates just to get into that last against Brazil. This match is regularly known as 'the round of the century'. 

Against West Germany in the semi-last, Italy, who scored on the eighth moment, hoped to have dominated the match. However, a 90th moment additional time equalizer by Karl-Heinz Schnellinger pushed the game to extra-time. Disorder was going to result.

The dubious second came in the 60th moment when french forward Patrick Battiston hoped to jump onto a through ball. He would get a little touch ready as it went objective ward, yet he neglected to see German manager Harald Schumacher coming. 

The German took him out with staggering savagery, to such an extent it thumped Battiston oblivious, took two of his teeth out, broke ribs, and harmed vertebrae. Notwithstanding all that, Schumacher got no card, and no foul was given. It is this second the game is associated with, notwithstanding the assaulting and electric play of the two sides.

1986 – Argentina beat England 2-1 

If at any time game split assessment on the virtuoso of Diego Maradona, it was this one. He made two of the most memorable World Cup moments over the course of about four minutes. 

Soon after half time, he delivered the main, which has basically been recognized as 'the Hand of God'.
