World Cup History - Mexico 1970

The quarter-final match between the 1966 finalists was another classic. West Germany were trailing the World Cup holders, England, by two goals to nil with 20 minutes to go. The Germans leveled the scores to take the game into extra-time and finally earn their sweet revenge, with a (3:2) victory.

But 1970 belonged to Pelé, who earned his third World Cup winners' medal when Brazil got their hands on the Jules Rimet Cup; for keeps.

If Italy were saving their energy in the first-round group stage, they were sapped after their semi-final marathon with West Germany and fell apart as the Brazilian samba drummed in four goals to the Azzura's one; Jairzinho scoring in every match for Brazil.
