On four occasions, a team in the Final of the FIFA World Cup™ has scored four or more goals.

The first time was in the first final, in 1930, when hosts Uruguay overcame South American rivals Argentina 4-2 in front of a crowd of 93,000 people in Montevideo to become the first world champions.

In 1958, a 17-year-old Pele guided Brazil to a 5-2 win over Sweden. The teenager burst onto the scene at the tournament and sealed his arrival with a brace in the final as the Brazilians fought back for a convincing victory after the hosts had taken an early lead.

England famously defeated West Germany 4-2 in 1966, thanks in part to Geoff Hurst's hat-trick at Wembley. Pele was again a key figure in 1970, opening the scoring in Mexico City as Brazil romped past Italy 4-1.
