World Cup Countdown Day 5: Lazy Fan Sports look back at Brazil’s amazing victory over Sweden in the 1958 World Cup. Brazil won the game 5-2 with a 17-year old Pele inspiring the masses.
Pelé, 17, set the world alight with his performances in this tournament. The precocious teenager – still the youngest player to appear in the final – scored a brilliant third and sealed the title in the 90th minute to claim a 5-2 victory on the day. He proceeded to win two more titles in 1962 and 1970.
5 days to go until the 2018 World Cup starts! Are you ready?
