Sweden 1958 – The Quarter and Semi Finals

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! Turn matches the truth. The most spectacular semi-finals and finals in World Cup history. Some say that in football there are no records, but what they say about it: In the last 4 games of the World Cup, when distributing the medals have scored 27 goals (6.75 per match). One of the teams will score 10 (just under 5 per game), two players will have 5, only the finale viewers will enjoy a whole 7 goals. So this is a real world records. Unique and incredible! In the first semifinal of the Swedes give everything and your goals Skoglund, Gren and Hamrin deposed world champion Germany with 3:1. Years after the World ’58, however, speak of the other semifinal. Many believe this is the best match of the 20th century. Both teams excellent export performance, in which Stacy (will receive a “Golden Ball” at the end of the 1958.) Company and also the supreme masters for the first time in this World Cup and Zhilmar (Brazilian goalkeeper) it is necessary to bear balls from his net after firing jewel “of Fontaine and Roger Piantoni. But Brazilians are infallible. It turns out that they have “driymtim”. Carioca delightful way to outplay “Rooster” in a match with 7 goals and future king of football is irresistible – a hat-trick, plus goals of Didi and Vava – 5:2. “The real final” in this World Cup has been played. As evidence, the match for 3rd place the French “tell the game” to the Germans. Fontaine is in his element and their “crashes” 4 “rag” and Kopagi Duis complete. But the German is not German, if not move even when it is “dead” – in 2 goals flowing – 6:3. So you know to this day when Germany meet France at a major tournament, still wants to take revenge? And it does!
