Q. The 1958 and 1962 World Cup campaigns are famous for the rising Brazilian star Pele (although Pele was injured for the finals after their first game), who was his not so famous striker partner who when they were both in the line up for Brazil they never lost a game?

Alex you are right! There have only been 6 host nation cup winners, which shakermaker has listed, he just got a bit carried away.

 

How come no-one has answered the next one?

I know Omar would know the answer but is no-one else willing to have a go?

Ahh, so it's the other strike partner, of whom I've no idea what his name is then.

 

Vava was his strike partner at around the same time though wasn't he?

Don't forget this was a time when a 4-4-2 wasn't played, so maybe strike partner is the wrong term but he was definitely a forward/attacking player. The clue is in the stat about them never losing a game when they both played together.

Some would even argue the little bird (translation of garrincha) was better.

The stories about the guy are just unbelievable, things like he had no tactical knowledge (no mention of souness please) so managers when naming their team when they got to him said to him to just do his stuff or the story where he dribbled around three defenders then gets one on one with the keeper to dribble around him twice before putting the ball in the back of the net. Or that allegedly he fathered over 30 children throughout Brazil with his 12" penis. All that and the man couldn't even stand up straight and he ran like a crab!

No, I've got a good one on Pele that I give copies to the kid I coach football to but I've never knew there was one on both of them, any good?

There is an awesome brazilian movie on garrincha, all trippy and amazing naked women, in various moments with little bird, that gets shown here on sbs (our terrestial multi language station).

Yes I was. Italy 1990 was remembered for many things and although Germany won it, Roger Milla and a host of other individuals were far more memorable, don't you think?

Well to be fair, Schillachi won the golden ball at that world cup (Matthaus was 2nd) and the voting was such:

 

1. Lothar MATTHÄUS (Germany) 128 pts

2. Jean-Pierre PAPIN (France) 113

3. Gary LINEKER (England) 40

4. Robert PROSINECKI (Yugoslavia & Croatia) 38

5. Marco VAN BASTEN (Netherlands) 23

6. Franco BARESI (Italy) 12

7. Iván ZAMORANO (Chile) 10

8. Andreas BREHME (Germany) 9

9. Gianluca VIALLI (Italy) 8

10. Enzo SCIFO (Belgium) 7

 

Oh, and he was good for Inter that year too, coming in 2nd in Serie A

Not at all...

 

Lothar Matthaus was absolutely awesome in that competition - a primary reason as to why West Germany won it IMO. He was as important to them as Lampard is to Chelsea these days.
