World Cup history - Chile 1962
Zito celebrates scoring Brazil's second in the final
Zito celebrates scoring Brazil's second in the final
Football had developed into a more physical game by the time Chile hosted the seventh World Cup, after consecutive tournaments in Europe.

But some things did not change and Brazil won again and emulated Italy in winning consecutive finals after seeing off surprise package Czechoslovakia.

They failed to match the form which swept them to glory in 1958 but came from a goal down to win the final 3-1.

And the finals were marred by violence throughout, not all of it on the pitch.

A fan threw a bottle at Brazilian Garrincha, hitting him on the head, after he was sent off during the semi-final against Chile.

He replied by parading the Chilean flag after Brazil won the final, but there was plenty of violence involving the teams as well.

It started in the opening round, with the worst trouble occurring in the game between Italy and hosts Chile, which became known as the "Battle of Santiago".

Red cards

Italy's Ferrini was sent off and had to be dragged from the pitch by police when he refused to walk.

Team-mate Mario David was also ordered off when he retaliated to a punch in the face by kicking his opponent's neck.

Chile finally won 2-0 and Italy failed to make the last eight, but there was no such trouble for Czechoslovakia. They managed a goalless draw against Brazil in the first round and qualified for the quarter-finals, where they knocked out Hungary.

They went on to beat Yugoslavia in the semis and set up an unexpected rematch against defending champions Brazil - who were without the injured Pele from the second game on.
