- 브라질이 또 승리했으나 펠레는 첫게임 멕시코전에서 부상으로 더 이상 뛰지못했다. 이탈리아와 칠레 간의 산티애고의 대전투는 월드컵 역사상 가장 가장 추악한 게임으로 기록된다. 이 게임에서 2명의 이탈리아 선수가 퇴장을 당했고 한명은 칠레선수의 펀치를 맞아 코가 부러졌다. 
 
- 지역예선에서는 프랑스와 스웨덴이 탈락되었고 본선에서의 소련-유고, 칠레-이탈리아, 서독-스위스 전은 육체전으로 얼룩이 졌다. 소련과 콜롬비아 전에서는 소련이 4:1로 앞서 나가는 상황에서 흑거미라 불리우는 월드컵사에서 가장 뛰어난 골키퍼 야신이 9분간격으로 3골을 내주는 악몽을 겪으면서 4:4로 비기는 상황이 발생했다. 체코의 Vaclav Masek는 경기 시작 15초만에 멕시코의 골문을 열어 본선에서 가장 빠른 골로 기록이 된다. 
 
- 8강전에서 칠레는 소련을 2:1로 이기는 파란을 일으키나 4강전 브라질에는 역부족으로 4:2로 패하고 말았다. 이로서 브라질은 2번 연속으로 결승에 진출한다. 이미 16강전에서 브라질과 0:0으로 비긴바 있는 체코는 8강전에서는 헝가리를, 4강전에서 유고를 이기고 올라온 저력을 바탕으로 먼저 1골을 넣고도 3골을 내주어 역전패 당하고 만다. 

- 브라질은 우루과이와 이탈리아와 함께 2번 우승의 기록을 세운다.

 
FIFA World Cup - Chile 62
Another Brazilian triumph, but Pele played in only the opening game against Mexico before being injured. Brazil beat Czechoslovakia 3-1 in the final in Santiago with goals from Amarildo, Zito and Vava. The tournament also staged one of the most notorious matches in World Cup history - the Battle of Santiago between Italy and Chile, in which two Italians were sent off and one had his nose broken by a solid left-hook from a Chilean player. 
The Czechoslovakian team made its way through to the Final by defeating first Hungary and then Yugoslavia in the semi-final.

Brazil back on top 

In Chile, at the foot of the Andes, Brazil took off with its second consecutive world title, even with Pele absent from the team. But this seventh World Cup is also remembered as the occasion when football became more "physical". 

After two consecutive European-based tournaments - Switzerland 1954 and Sweden 1958 - the World Cup returned to South America twelve years after Brazil played host. FIFA's choice of Chile, however, raised more than a few eyebrows as it was believed to be sorely deficient in many areas (stadiums, access roads, capacity) and incapable of playing host to such a large-scale event. Fifty-six teams - a new record - took part in the qualifying rounds, which saw the elimination of France and Sweden, two of the big guns from the 1958 tournament. Many first-round games in this 1962 World Cup, such as USSR vs. Yugoslavia, Chile vs Italy and West Germany vs. Switzerland, were unfortunately marred by over-physical play. 
1962Arica, 3 June: the Soviet Union are leading the less-fancied Colombian team 4:1 after an hour's play and look like cruising to victory. But then Colombia draw level in a nine-minute interval when Lev Yashin - the "Black Spider" - in the Soviet goal has a nightmare spell. However, this is another exception that proves the rule: Lev Yashin is rated as the best goalkeeper in World Cup history. The FIFA trophy for the best keeper in a World Cup competition, introduced in 1994, is named after him in honour of his fine performances.   

There are some famous names to be found in the list of the fastest goals: Bryan Robson took 27 seconds to beat France's keeper Ettori in 1982; four years earlier Bernard Lacombe needed 37 to put the ball past Italy's Dino Zoff. But the absolute record is held by Vaclav Masek who scored for Czechoslovakia against Mexico in 1962 after just 15 seconds. (This did not stop the Mexicans, with their legendary keeper Carbajal, from winning the match 3:1). And a very surprising honour is held by San Marino, in particular by their then 22-year old player Davide Gualtieri, who scored just 9 seconds after the kick-off whistle in his team's final qualifying match in November 1993 - against England, no less. 

The ugly side of football had reared its head for the first time in a World Cup competition: all the more apparent because the Brazilian world champions were not really able to deliver their usual scintillating style of play, having problems getting into their stride. And the injury sustained by Pele against Yugoslavia did nothing to make matters easier. The star of the 1958 World Cup finally limped out of the 1962 tournament for good following a muscle injury suffered against Czechoslovakia. Nevertheless, the Brazilians, led by Garrincha and Zagallo, though less devastating than in Sweden, managed to qualify for the quarter-finals, which was not to be the case for Uruguay, Argentina or Italy. 

The Czech surprise 

The tournament's emotional high-spot came in the quarter-finals when the host nation Chile defeated the USSR (2-1) and the whole country took to the streets to celebrate. The Chileans' joy was short lived, however, for in the semi-final the Brazilians proved too strong for them. Brazil therefore qualified for their second consecutive final. Their opponents for the title were to be Czechoslovakia, surprise winners over Yugoslavia in the semis. 

The Czechs had already forged a draw (0-0) against the Brazilians in the first round and also miraculously beaten the Hungarians in the quarter-finals, the latter having struck the post no less than four times. Against all the odds it was the Czechs who took the lead in this final, before the Brazilians equalised two minutes later and then went on to score two more to retain the title: a magnificent feat from a team including nine players who had taken part in the victorious 1958 campaign. Brazil therefore joined Italy and Uruguay in the honours list as the only nations to have won the Jules Rimet trophy on two occasions. For the moment, at least...
