No2 – Brazil’s team goal v Italy (1970)

The Brazilian side that won the 1970 World Cup, beating Italy 4-1 in the final, is widely regarded as the greatest side ever to take part in the competition, and their fourth goal in that final, a masterstroke of team play and execution, underlined the rare synergy with which they played. The passing of Pelé and Jairzhino is exquisite, as the ball goes down the left and then back into the middle, before bouncing back out into space for Carlos Alberto’s ballistic finish. Football as it should be played.
