1970 FIFA World Cup : Mexico ...

The 1970 FIFA World Cup, the ninth staging of the World Cup, was held in Mexico, from 31 May to 21 June. Mexico was chosen as the host nation by FIFA in October 1964. The 1970 tournament was the first World Cup hosted in North America, and the first held outside South America and Europe. In a match-up of two-time World Cup champions, the final was won by Brazil, who beat Italy 4-1. With their third World Cup triumph, Brazil were allowed to keep the Jules Rimet Trophy permanently.


The Brazilian team, featuring Pelé (who was in his fourth and final World Cup), Carlos Alberto, Clodoaldo, Gérson, Jairzinho, Rivelino, and Tostão, is usually regarded as the greatest attacking World Cup team ever. They won all of their 6 games on the way to the title, and had also won all of their 6 qualifying games on their way to Mexico. This tournament saw the return of free-flowing, attacking play after the physical battles of 1962 and 1966, and is still considered by many fans to be the finest World Cup in history.

1. Bobby Moore

England's most successful captain. He not only led the side to World Cup victory, but captained West Ham when they won the F.A. Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup in successive seasons. Sir Alf Ramsey, who uses superlatives like a miser uses money, calls him "Magnificent". From a boy he was destined for success. He was an England youth international at centre-half, a postion he is sometimes forced to play for his club. His international career started in Lima where England played Peru in 1962. He has played in every world Cup match since.

32. Geoff Hurst

Thirty-two caps. son of a professional footballer, and born at Aston-under-Lyne. Hurst earned his first cap in 1966. He didn't make the World Cup team until the quarter-final against Argentina and at once hit the headlines by scoring the winning goal. From this spectacular springboard he dived into the World Cup record books by becoming the only player ever to score three goals in a final (against west Germany). Hurst began his playing days at West Ham as a wing-half, but became a strong and brilliant front runner.

33. Martin Peters

Earned his first of 32 England caps just before the last World Cup, scored the second goal against west Germany in the final. Born at Plaistow, played as a schoolboy for Dagenham, London, Essex and England. Joined West Ham as an apprentice professional in May 1959 and made his first Football League appearance against Cardiff City on Good Friday 1962. as a player Peters is athletic rather than muscular and although he spends most of his time playing deep he almost slides into dangerous positions. Once in range he has a "killer" shot. If he reaches his peak in Mexico he could become one of the most outstanding world Cup players.
