  • Description

    Brazilians all over the world celebrated their country's historic World Cup win on Sunday (June 21). In New York, the match was televised live, in colour, on a giant television screen in Madison Square Garden.

    They were among the 800 million people who watched the match live on television from Mexico City's Aztec Stadium. It is Brazil's third World Cup win and so they win the Jules Rimet Trophy outright. Brazil previously won the trophy in 1958, in Sweden, and 1962 in Chile.

    With a brilliant display of attacking football, the Brazilians overpowered the defence-orientated Italians 4-1. The Brazilian forward Jair set a new record by scoring in every game; and Pele, the 29-year-old acknowledged master of football, became the only man to win three World Cup Winner's medals.

    At the final whistle, Brazilian fans in the Aztec Stadium risked injury by leaping the enormous moat surrounding the pitch to swamp their team with congratulations. The jubilation was not confined to Mexico alone, all over the world Brazilians celebrated the victory and outstanding achievement of the Brazilian soccer team - undisputed football champions of the world.
