Brazil 1958 finalHowever, VI World Championship has an official finish. For joy! Against one another are the most decent. So far – no loss, with only one draw. Deserved! Something curious: Sweden and Brazil are the only ones in this World Cup, playing with golden-yellow shirts. One of them will have to come up with a backup team. “Short stick” falls on the Brazilians. They will play in blue. Is it a bad omen? Swedes have already secured the silver – previously unknown success, unique and never thereafter. But the appetite comes with eating and more in the 4th marks Lihodolm minutes – 1:0 for Sweden. Will the miracle? … No! Against Tre Kronur are stood not only 11 excellent, great players (Brazil has always kidded inimitable masters of the leather ball), but also a superb team. Improvisation are subject to a lean organization in the game of the composition, skillfully led by coach Feola outside and “playmaker” Diddy inside. Dual attacks are not an end in itself, a path to successful implementation of total superiority. Soon the result was equalized by Vava, then again he displayed his first. After the break came the turn of Pele. His performance in celebration of the third goal (goalkeeper transferred to an external shock folded by air – fantastic “drop sheet”) and now appears as cinema textbooks in football, but so far no one has repeated. Mario “Lobo” ( “Ant”) Zagata increased to 4:1. Swedes do what they can, to defend with honor, even counter-attacked, occasionally – Simonson reduces the difference, but shortly before the end Pele again no mistake – 5:2. Brazil is the champion of the world. After 5 ‘attempts to fly “at last the greatest in football is in the highest float freely, gently, beautifully, naturally! Brazilian-born is a legend.

Sweden 1958 semi-finalThe overall conclusion after playing in the finals is that the teams played extra games, obviously not recovered his power, but the mere turn of the championship obviously shows that those who go the semifinals, are the most dignified “square” in world football in 1950. But what happened in the 4 game, which was “cut head” of the other 4? Swedes are definitely better than the players of the USSR – 2:0, Germany is “sweating and struggling, but many will score the winning goal – 1:0 against Yugoslavia. The French more than firm against Red-haired North Ireland – 4:0. And the Brazilians? Tough match against Wales. Sammy makes his case. Terrible play somehow, even frivolous. You can tell that they are much better, but .. However, and this match will go down in history. The first goal for Brazil’s Pele! Will take years. King (only 17 years in Sweden ’58) will play over 1300 games, will score over 1200 goals, but in hundreds of interviews will argue that he has never scored a more important and more beautiful goal from the one which beat Brazil Wales 1:0. And indeed: Pele is the boundary of the box with his back toward the door. Took the ball to chest, and take it with her right leg above the transfer head, rotates 180 degrees to the left leg and crashing it into the network. All this – without the ball to touch the ground. Virtuoso! (more…)

Nobody is opposing, and contrary to the elite hitting Scandinavia. Subsequently, it appears that the choice of FIFA has hit in dozens. Green fields and forests, crystal lakes, tranquility and comfort of Sweden as finalists make the stay pleasant and quiet. To add to all this wonderful conditions for football, which offers this time of year (June) short Swedish summer. For summer, these latitudes, I asked one Swede: “You know here you have a real summer – hot, muggy?” And he slightly offended, replied: “What do we have to, it was people? On June 22 from 7 am, and all the way to 19:30 in the evening!” Just between these 2-championships (1954-1958) died Jules Rimet (24.10.1873-15.10.1956). International football movement lost its great shape. Rarely, cultural and civilized, extremely loyal to the game, he is the president of FIFA from 1921. and will remain in history as the man with lots of love, and twice more tenacity, overcoming enormous difficulties of any kind, creating a true miracle – World Cup. As a token of appreciation and respect for him, still alive in 1946. delegates at the FIFA congress unanimously decided to name the World Cup, better known as the Golden Nike “in its name. Sounds a bit authoritarian, but a fact – until 1970. official name of the World Cup is “Jules Rimet Cup”. And something interesting – from 1960. and a European Cup. Bowl, which received European champions, called “Henri Delaunay Cup”, ie named after the faithful follower of Jules Rimet and long gene. FIFA secretary Henri Delaunay. (more…)
