Zidane’s France 1998 beaten: Pelé’s Brazil 1970, ultimate winner of the FIFA World Cup

Thanks to you, we now know the identity of the ultimate world champion. Two winners of the World Cup clashed in the final of our tournament: the mythical Brazil 1970 version of Pelé against the unforgettable France 1998 of a certain Zinédine Zidane. There could only be one winner, and it was the legendary Seleçao that you singled out by granting it… 51% of the votes (reading taken on November 24, 2022 at 5:30 p.m.)!
Exiting first place in their group, Brazil 1970 then beat their 1958 version in the quarter-finals before overcoming Spain 2010 in the semi-finals. For their part, France 1998 also took first place in their group and then won their quarter-final duel against Diego Maradona’s Argentina 1986. It was then Brazil 2002 that suffered the law of the men of Aimé Jacquet, only beaten by the greatest team in the history of the World Cup in the final.

A look back at the strengths of the two finalists…

Brazil 1970

Why him : Brazil 1970, two words linked to crazy evocative power, that of a team at the top of its game, carried by exceptional players. Pelé is the spearhead and he has Jairzinho, Tostao, Rivelino, Gerson and Carlos Alberto at his side. The Auriverde collective touches on magic and the final, won 4-1 against Italy, symbolizes Brazilian omnipotence. The coronation of the most beautiful team in history at the end of the most beautiful World Cup in history? It is not forbidden to think.
Selection driver: Mario Zagallo
The eleven lined up in the final : Felix – Carlos Alberto, Brito, Piazza, Everaldo – Clodoaldo, Gerson – Jairzinho, Tostao, Pelé, Rivelino

France 1998

Why she : at home, the band removed by Aimé Jacquet feels growing wings, far from the criticisms that fall on the tricolor coach before the tournament. In France, the Blues rested on an extraordinary defense, a complete group and a perfectly balanced collective sublimated at times by Zinédine Zidane. His double in the final against a 3-0 outclassed Brazil, which follows three tense matches against Paraguay, Italy and Croatia, propels the French team to unprecedented heights, where the stars are unhooked.
Selection driver: Aimé Jacquet
The eleven aligned in the final: Barthez – Thuram, Leboeuf, Desailly, Lizarazu – Karembeu, Deschamps, Petit – Zidane – Djorkaeff, Guivarc’h
