October 22, 2018
the FIFA World Cup over the decades has given us some great games it’s one of the biggest sporting events in the world so here’s a look at nine of the best FIFA World Cup matches everybody.
Brazil Thomas Muller opened the scoring after 11 minutes then Germany scored for gold in the space of six minutes and that was that in the end Germany beat Brazil 7 to 1 all right so let’s take a look at Chile versus Italy in 1962 this match was a simple group stage match between Chile and Italy and it went into one of the most infamous and controversial games of World Cup history the game set a record for an unprecedented amount of foul play players were punched and spat on and like the police had to come and intervene on three occasions to stop the violence Chile actually ended up winning to nil but many call the victory super disgraceful and they’re like yeah now this is completely ruining the name of football at number 6 we have Netherlands vs. West Germany in the Year 1974.
Dutch national team rules regarded as one of the best teams to ever win a World Cup many call the Dutch as football’s eternal nearly men their record stands at three finals three defeats now it’s said that when the Dutch had their best team they lost out to a combination of infighting as well as bad luck and the year 1974 in the finals the Netherlands and West Germany set the trend the next match to look at is a 1970s match between Brazil and England Brazil went on to beat England 1 nil but the match will be remembered for two moments the first of which was the save so the England star player Gordon banks was able to produce one of the greatest saves of all time stopping Kelly’s shot now the second moment was the handshake that followed the match as Pele and more exchanged their football jerseys as a sign of respect between the two of them yeah one of the finest moments in football sportsmanship that you’ll ever see okay so let’s go a bit further back in the year 1950 we have
Brazil and Uruguay many people predicted that the World Cup final of the 1950 between Brazil and Uruguay would be the moment that would be Brazil’s first World Cup victory but Uruguay’s national team had different plans you see not only did they buy two copies of the newspapers that predicted brazil’s assumed victory and pissed all over them but also in front of the world record crowd of 200,000 people Uruguay defeated Brazil two-to-one in what became known as the Marikana disaster here we have Brazil again but this time vs. Sweden in the 1958 World Cup now they don’t call
Pele the greatest football player of all time for nothing you see not only did he score more than ones in the World Cup finals in the 1958 but he also managed to make it one of the greatest goals of all time at the age of just 17 years old
