Chile was the venue for the 1962 finals, where holders Brazil were expected to regain their crown.

Two conmen, Alamo and Mike, find shelter in Paradise City, which is full of jokers like themselves, who assume them to be lawmen and are almost hanged.
The 1958 finals, held in Sweden, saw the emergence of a new superstar in Pélé. This 17 year-old wonder player led the Brazilians to a final triumph over the host nation 5-2.
Argentina, as hosts in 1978, were under great pressure to succeed. Amidst passionate supporters, they progressed to the finals with a wonderful blend of attacking football and tough defending. The unlucky Dutch, now lacking Cruyffs' sublime skills, were the fall guys once again in the Final, losing 3-1 in a classic clash of styles.
The 1974 finals in West Germany saw the emergence of "Total Football" in the shape of the classy Dutch led by the legendary Johan Cruyff. The Dutch swept all before them until they came up against the solid hosts in the final. Beckenbauer led West Germany to a tense 2-1 victory.
England was expected to perform well in 1966, playing on home ground. After tough, tense games against Portugal and Argentina, England eventually overcame West Germany in the final 4-2. The team was helped, in no small measure, by a historic final hat-trick by Geoff Hurst and superb defending and attacking from Bobby Moore and Bobby Charlton.
