The 1962 FIFA World Cup Chile™ saw Brazil become only the second team to retain the Trophy.

It was a tournament that belonged to Garrincha, the Brazilians’ mercurial, magical winger, who captured the world’s imagination – and a few prizes to boot.

After all, as well as finishing joint-top scorer with four goals, the Botafogo legend also earned the Golden Ball award, recognising his status as the competition’s outstanding player.
