A team with Pele is a good enough reason alone to include it in this list.

But this Brazilian national team also boasted talented players like Carlos Alberto, Rivellino and Jairzinho.

Mario Zagallo, who won the World Cup twice as a player, led them to glory as a manager in 1970.

Incidentally, it was the Selecao’s third world title.

While Jairzinho struck the back of the net in every game and Pele scored a memorable header in the 4-1 victory over Italy in the final itself.
