Pele opened the score and Gerson, Jairzinho and Carlos Alberto followed to make it three titles for their country.

Brazil had to wait quite sometime before they won another title.

Pele's era was gone now and Brazil had a new set of talent which took on Italy once again in the final in 1994.

This time it proved to be more difficult against Italy which had legendary players such as Paolo Maldini and Roberto Baggio in the team.

Their last title came in 2002 when it was held in Korea and Japan.

Brazil had many footballing stars lining up for them such as the famous Ronaldo with his iconic haircut, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Cafu and the list goes on.
