GAME SUMMARY

In their first appearance in the final stage of a World Cup, Colombia surprised Uruguay during the first half. The veteran captain “Cobo” Zuluaga opened the score with a penalty awarded for handball of Eliseo Álvarez, and Coll hit a post. Uruguayan frustration led to some harsh tackling which left Zuluaga with three broken ribs and ended his international career. Eventually, Uruguay came back from behind in the second half: Luis Cubilla scored first with a shot that seemed to surprise “Caimán” Sánchez (who expected a cross) and Sasía took a short through-ball in a packed penalty area before scoring from a narrow angle on the right.

GAME SUMMARY

Hosts Chile couldn’t have a worse start when Toro failed to control a bad throw by Escuti and Wüthrich scored with a long-range shot. The game acquired then a new tension: Eschmann and Rojas should have been sent off when they came to blows, Contreras and Leonel Sánchez hit the woodwork, and Elsener made two fine saves from Fouilloux. The Chilean pressure finally paid off just before halftime, when Leonel Sánchez’s low shot was deflected by Morf and wrongfooted the goalkeeper. Six minutes into the second half, Ramírez put Chile ahead after a fine individual display, and soon after Leonel Sánchez scored his second goal and secured the victory for Chile.

GAME SUMMARY

Brazil encountered much more resistance than expected in Mexico, who had improved their defensive organization in recent years. The first Brazilian goal didn’t come until the second half, when Pelé beat two men, won the ball back after a tackle and crossed for Zagallo to run in and score with a diving header. Mexico could have equalized on the quarter hour mark, but Díaz shot wide of an empty goal after a miscalculation of Gilmar. A period of Brazilian domination ensued thanks to their fantastic ball control and skill, and Pelé made it 2-0 with a superb individual display: he dribbled as many as four players before shooting with his left foot into the bottom corner. However, this extra effort of a young Pelé would worsen a groin injury he had before, and eventually would make him miss the last games of the tournament.

GAME SUMMARY

Marzolini, an attacking full-back with an excelling class, showed his ability early into the game, sprinting up the left to serve a cross which Pagani touched on to Facundo, who made it 1-0. Despite this promising start, Argentina was restrained by a defensive system imposed by Juan Carlos Lorenzo, more interested in neutralizing the rival’s game than creating. Kolev, who missed two early chances, was brought down with fouls time and again; Iliev and Diev also suffered the intensity of the Argentinian defense, and were out injured for the rest of the tournament.

GAME SUMMARY

A repetition of the 1960 European Cup final, with the same outcome. The Soviet Union were generally in command of the game, but Yashin made fine saves from Šekularac and Galić in the first period. After halftime, the Soviets opened the scored when Ponedel’nik hit the bar with a free kick and Valentin Ivanov headed in the rebound. In the last minutes, Voronin sprinted past Jusufi and sent a pass to Ponedel’nik, who scored from the edge of the area. The only negative news for the USSR was a broken leg of Dubinskij after a bad foul by Mujić (both players would miss the rest of the competition for this reason: the Russian in a hospital and the Yugoslav sent home by his team).

GAME SUMMARY

Much was expected from this duel between these two past world champions, but in the end defenses overcame attacks and no goals were scored. The Germans had a very physical team with the inclusion of Schnellinger and Schulz, and Italy’s defense was well marshalled by Cesare Maldini (father of Paolo). Three naturalized South American players were part of the Italian squad (Sívori and Maschio from Argentina, Altafini from Brazil), but they couldn’t show their talent in this game, perhaps intimidated by a hostile crowd.

But the Czech defense was solid with Pluskal and Popluhár, and with only ten minutes left Scherer beat Santamaría and left Štibrányi clear to chip the ball over the diving goalkeeper. Spain tried to come back, but it was Czechoslovakia who were closer to score again, when Scherer’s goal was disallowed for offside with two minutes to go.

GAME SUMMARY

On a slippery pitch due to heavy rain before the game, Tichy opened the score when he brought the ball through the inside-left channel, dummied Moore and shot high past the keeper. Hungary could have extended their lead, but Springett saved well from Sándor and Albert missed from close range. England was kept out by a solid Hungarian defense until minute 60, when Grosics lost the ball in a challenge with Hitchens and Sárosi had to stop Greaves’ shot with his hand. Flowers converted the subsequent penalty, and it looked like the game would be on the English side. However, although the Pross were in control of the ball, the danger was still on the Hungarian side. In minute 71, Tichy penetrated down the right wing and sent a cross to center-forward Albert, who scored after dribbling Springett. The second Hungarian goal completely demoralized the English players, who succumbed to the skillful Magyar interpassing.

Uruguay could have equalized with a ball that hit the bar, but right after halftime Jerković finished things off with a header from a right-wing cross. Midway the second half, a challenge of Sasía on Šoškić led to a brawl between Cabrera and Popović, as a result of which both players were sent off.

GAME SUMMARY

The game between Chile and Italy (later known as “The Battle of Santiago”) was a constant jeering and whistling to the Italian players, who had to bear the consequences of a series of articles written by two Italian journalists emphasizing the poverty of Santiago. This tension was also present on the pitch, and after some hard foul plays Ferrini was sent off for retaliation against Landa (the game was actually interrupted for eight minutes until the police escorted Ferrini out of the field). Soon afterwards, Leonel Sánchez responded to a series of kicks from David by knocking him down with a punch right in front of the linesman. The referee did nothing after this, so David took things into his own hands before halftime, kicking Sánchez in the neck, and was duly sent off. Italy held out in the second half until Mattrel punched away a free kick by Leonel Sánchez and Ramírez headed over two defenders into the net. In the last minutes, Toro secured the Chilean victory with a long-range shot.

The young Brazilian crack had to play the rest of the match on the left wing, unable to exploit his physical and technical skills (no substitutions yet in football games).

GAME SUMMARY

After a quarter, Charlton went past his man and crossed for the tall new cap Peacock to beat Roma with a header, but Navarro saved the goal with his hand over the line and the referee called for a penalty shot. Flowers converted from the spot and England started to dominate the situation lead by Charlton (the best left winger of the tournament), who scored the second with a shot inside the far post. In the second half, Greaves netted a loose ball after Roma had saved from Douglas, and Sanfilippo scored the only goal for Argentina from a tight angle.

GAME SUMMARY

When the Soviet Union took a 3-0 lead after only eleven minutes, everything seemed to be going their way to get an early qualification. “Caimán” Sánchez, one of the world’s finest goalkeepers, wasn’t fortunate in the two goals scored by Ivanov, and the Colombian defense allowed Chislenko to net the second Soviet goal easily. But then Aceros pulled one back to give Colombia some hope before halftime. Early into the second period, Ponedel’nik went past Alzate to make it 4-1, and this time the Soviet victory seemed guaranteed. However, Colombia started to recover with an almost comical goal: Coll hit a corner low and poorly to the near post where Chokheli, instead of clearing it, stood aside and ushered it in, much to Yashin’s dismay. The Colombian recovery was complete when Rada poked in the third from close range and Klinger stabbed in a loose ball after Yashin had dived at his feet.

Fourteen minutes into the second half, Seeler beat a man to score the second. Switzerland, who were missing their central attacker Eschmann (he suffered an ankle injury early into the game, after a sliding tackle by Szymaniak, and then missed the whole second half), reduced differences when Schneiter shot into the roof of the net after a corner, but the German defense frustrated the last Swiss attacks.

After the game, Mexico was already eliminated and Spain still had a chance to qualify into the next stage.

New goals by Tichy, Solymosi and Albert made it 5-0, before Sokolov scored a consolation goal for Bulgaria with a long-range shot that went past debutant Ilku (brought in after Grosics had injured a hand).

Sasía equalized for Uruguay early into the second half from a loose ball after a free kick. The 1-1 tie served the USSR to qualify for the next round, and their strong midfield frustrated Uruguay the rest of the game. The referee originally allowed a late goal by Chislenko when the ball passed through a hole in the side netting, after which Ivanov finished off a classic counterattack.

GAME SUMMARY

Chile, already qualified for the next stage, didn’t play this game with the same intensity as Germany and failed to create many opportunities to score. For the Germans it was a crucial game, and they used a defense all over the pitch, with a special mark of Schäfer on the dangerous Rojas. Midway the first half, Szymaniak opened the score from the penalty spot after Seeler had been elbowed off the ball. Chile tried to react, but the German defense stood firm and conceded few chances to the South Americans. In minute 42, Fahrian had to be at full stretch to deny Ramírez’s shot. After the restart, Schnellinger and Erhardt frustrated the two most dangerous Chilean opportunities, and eight minutes for time Seeler sealed the German victory with a marvellous header from a cross by Brülls.

GAME SUMMARY

Looking for extra pace and mobility, Helenio Herrera dropped Del Sol, Santamaría and Luis Suárez in the Spanish line-up, and the changes nearly paid off. Gento, very fast and direct, was a constant danger for Brazil on the left wing. Spain took the lead ten minutes before halftime when Adelardo shot into the bottom corner from twenty meters. In the second half, Puskás took a free kick from the right side of the Brazilian area and, after a defensive header, Peiró connected an excellent overhead kick into the net, but the referee unexplicably disallowed it. Midway the second half, however, the talented young Amarildo (who was replacing an injured Pelé) equalized after volleying home a center by Zagallo. Four minutes from time, Amarildo again completed the Brazilian comeback with a header from a cross by Vavá.

Veteran goalkeeper Grosics made good saves from Facundo, Pando and Sáinz. Argentina, who deserved to win this game, was left to depend on a Bulgarian win over England in the last group game in order to qualify for the quarterfinals.

Galić ran through alone for the first goal and Jerković shot the second in off a post. After halftime, Galić headed in the 3-0, Melić volleyed in a cross by Anković and Jerković again wrapped it up with a late long-range shot.

GAME SUMMARY

In an irrelevant game (both teams were already eliminated), Italy and Switzerland played an entertaining match. As soon as the first minute, Mora opened the score after Elsener deflected a crossshot by Pascutti. In the second half, two consecutive goals by new cap Bulgarelli put the game out of reach for Switzerland. Pascutti then almost made it 4-0 for Italy, but Elsener produced an instinctive save to his close-range header.

GAME SUMMARY

Nothing at stake in this match, with Mexico already eliminated and Czechoslovakia already qualified. The most remarkable event was the fastest goal in the history of the competition, scored only 15 seconds into the game: Mexico kicked off but lost the ball, Masopust advanced to set up debutant Mašek on the left, and his shot rolled under Carbajal. However, Mexico came back from behind. Díaz equalized after sweeping past two defenders, and Del Águila beat three men before making it 2-1. The Central American team secured their first victory in the tournament with a late penalty converted by Héctor Hernández.

Chile could have extended their lead later, but Yashin made an amazing one-hand save when Landa was clean through. Chislenko equalized for the Soviet Union after picking up a deflected shot by Ponedel’nik, but almost immediately Rojas scored with an excellent low shot and Chile held out in defense for the rest of the game to earn qualification into the semifinals.

GAME SUMMARY

For the third time in a row, Yugoslavia were faced with West Germany in a quarterfinal game. But this time, unlike before, the Balkans edged through in a fascinating match, full of personal duels (Šekularac vs. Szymaniak, Marković vs. Seeler, Šoškić vs. Fahrian). The first clear opportunity was for the Germans, when Seeler hit the post with a low shot after running onto Haller’s pass. Yugoslavia were also close to score, but Schnellinger cleared the ball off the line following a corner. The only goal of the game came near the end, when Galić pulled the ball back after working his way to the goal line and Radaković lashed it high into the net.

GAME SUMMARY

This game will be remembered for the magnificent individual display of Garrincha. He sent a warning of his talent early into the game when he beat three men before Haynes tackled him near the goal line. At the half hour he scored his first goal after heading in a corner by Zagallo. England equalized when Greaves hit the bar with a looping header and Hitchens banged in an instant shot. Soon after halftime, Brazil regained advantage after Vavá headed in a free kick from Garrincha, and six minutes later the Brazilian right winger made it 3-1 with a marvelous curling shot into the top corner. Garrincha could have completed a memorable performance in this game with a hat-trick, but Springett pulled off a top drawer save to deny his long-range effort.

GAME SUMMARY

Hungary were firm favorites for this game, but their attack knocked time and again on the Czech defensive wall (and a patchy pitch didn’t help their passing game). Czechoslovakia knew how to slow down the play, and in the first half a through-ball from Masopust cut out the Hungarian defense for Scherer to score. After that, Schrojf made save after save from Albert, Sándor, Solymosi and Sipos. Tichy hit the bar to complete the Hungarian frustration, and in the end the utilitarian game of the Czechs earned them qualification into the semifinals.

GAME SUMMARY

The semifinal game between Brazil and hosts Chile attracted the biggest attendance of the competition. Although the powerful Rojas hit a post early on, it was the Brazilians who imposed their style of play and, after having a clear penalty denied and a goal disallowed for offside, Garrincha opened the score with a long-range shot into the top corner. After the half hour, he doubled Brazil’s advantage with a header following a corner from Zagallo. Toro gave Chile hope before halftime with a fabulous 25-meter free kick.

 

Early into the second half, Vavá made it 3-1 when he headed in a corner. Although Leonel Sánchez reduced differences later on with a penalty shot called after handball by Zózimo, Vavá put the game out of contest with another header from a cross. As Chile became desperate trying to equalize within the last ten minutes, the play grew rougher and two players were sent off: first Landa for fouling Zito, and then Garrincha for kicking Rojas. On his way out of the pitch, Garrincha was hit by a missile from the crowd and had his head cut.

GAME SUMMARY

As they did before with Hungary, the pragmatic Czechoslovakian team beat the more skilful side of Yugoslavia. Galić missed two good chances in quick succession, but it was Kadraba who opened the score early into the second half when he headed in a rebound. Yugoslavia tried to equalize, but Šijaković and Skoblar hit the bar. Finally Jerković made it 1-1 with a back-header after beating Schrojf to a cross. With ten minutes to go, Scherer made the most of a defensive disadjustment in Yugoslavia and, unmarked, crossed the ball to beat the onrushing Šoškić. Then Marković conceded a penalty by handling the ball a long way from goal, and Scherer secured the Czech qualification for the final.

The game then had to be interrupted after a group of Chilean fans invaded the pitch to celebrate the goal, and could be resumed later.

GAME SUMMARY

Although the tournament’s best player so far, Garrincha, had been sent off in the semifinal game, diligent negotiations by the Brazilian authorities had allowed him to play the final. However, this time the Czech defense managed to neutralize his play. Still, Brazil had enough fire-power elsewhere. As in the 1958 final, the South American side conceded an early goal and then came back from behind to win the game.

 

Czechoslovakia opened the score after fifteen minutes, when little Masopust ran onto Pospíchal’s clever pass to hit a low shot before Zózimo could get to him. It was expected then that the muscular defense of Czechoslovakia could hold the lead for as long as possible, as they did in their previous games, but unfortunately for them Brazil equalized within two minutes when Amarildo received a throw-in, shrugged off Kvašňák, beat Pluskal near the left-hand goal line and shot in at the near post where Schrojf (expecting a cross) had left a wide gap.

 

After halftime, Czechoslovakia shook off the Brazilian domination and started to create some opportunities, especially a clear penalty not awarded by the referee after Djalma Santos’ handball. However, Brazil made the Czechs pay for their lack of definition in front of goal when Zito headed home a cross from Amarildo, and then secured their victory near the end when a hanging cross from Djalma Santos was dropped by Schrojf as he came out, and Vavá knocked in the loose ball. Brazil won their second World Cup without their young star Pelé, showing that they still had plenty of talent in their team.
