Final Tournament Standing


Red cards and the power of fans sees another spectacular World Cup.

Brazil versus Chile has perpetually been billed as a colossal mismatch. A pleasant winter’s day in Santiago - and a 1962 FIFA World Cup™ semi-final – provided the setting for a rare exception.

Garrincha's red card left him suspended for the Final. Amazingly, so besotted had the Chilean public become with the winger that they, along with Chile president Jorge Alessandri, successfully led a petition to allow him to perform in the fixture. Consequently, Brazil retained their World Cup crown with a convincing 3-1 victory over Czechoslovakia.
