England, the only British team to qualify, thought they had a better team than the winning side of 1966 for this tournament, but no one was as good as Brazil.

Rated as one of the best teams ever to play football, Brazil in 1970 were in England's group, and only a Gordon Banks wonder save kept the final score at 1-0 to Brazil.

England went on to lose in the quarter-finals to West Germany, while the Brazilians crushed Italy for their third World Cup win.

World Cup final: Brazil 4-1 Italy
