The 1970 World Cup Final in Mexico City showcased Italy matching up against a Brazil team many still consider to be the greatest squad ever assembled. Brazil’s success came from their free flowing attack while the Italians had gotten to the championship match by playing strong defense. Legends Carlos Alberto, Pele, Jairzinho and Rivelino lead Brazil to a 4-1 victory over Italy as a record number of viewers around the world watched live and in color for the first time in World Cup history.
