There is a misconception about classic Brazilian football: They were not great in the past because they had great players. They were great because they had a great system that allowed those great players to shine. And, since the 1982 loss, they abandoned the passing game with moving triangles they were famous for, in order to implement a cynic, physical style they are now known for.

No, the loss to Germany was not a fluke. It was a consequence of decades of short-sightedness by Brazilian football as a whole. Back in the early 2000s and 90s this was not so apparent, because of some great players and the fact that the rest of the world was still playing the old-style football. But with the rise of Barcelona and the new style they developed, rediscovering the love for passing football and marrying it with modern, fast paced football, Brazilian football was suddenly made obsolete.

Sizzling Brazil stun the Azteca

The fitting culmination to what was, in the eyes of most observers, the quintessential FIFA World Cup ™ tournament. This match had all the ingredients of a great final - goals, end-to-end football and star players. In the end, Pele, Jairzinho and Carlos Alberto got the better of Facchetti, Rivera and Riva in a match which, for over an hour, was much closer than the final score-line suggests.
