In 1962 the Football World Cup returned to the continent of South America. It was held in Chile and won by Brazil, who repeated as champions after beating Czechoslovakia 3-1 in the final.

Only three nations competed for the honour to stage the games, one European (West Germany) and both Argentina and Chile of South America. Although the Argentineans were the favourites, the responsibility fell to the Chileans, who built new stadiums to hold the tournament after a terrible earthquake two years previous. The format of the competition stayed the same as 1958: 16 teams qualified, divided into four groups of four. Top two teams in each group would advance to the quarterfinals.

The initial group stage saw Brazil lose one of their most influential stars from the previous campaign, Pel who only managed to play in Brazil's first two games – one of which he scored in. But Pel's injury led to the inclusion of Garrincha. He was born a cripple, but became something of a fairy tale after surgery making him able to walk; he eventually went on to win major honours within the world of football.

Brazil topped their group with Czechoslovakia finishing second above Mexico and Spain. USSR and Yugoslavia finished above Uruguay and Colombia. Hungary, along with England, progressed through to the quarterfinals, while Argentina and Bulgaria went home. Swizterland managed to lose all three games while West Germany and Chile both went through over Italy. This was a group that saw terrible on the pitch clashes between Italy and the hosts. Although only two players were sent off, the teams needed police protection to leave the field in safety.

Surprisingly, Chile managed to defeat USSR to land themselves a semifinal game against the winner of the England – Brazil game. In which a brilliant performance from Garrincha, which included two goals in a 3-1 win, saw the South Americans triumph. Meanwhile 1-0 wins for Yugoslavia against West Germany -- and Czechoslovakia against Hungary -- saw the two Slavic states meet in the semifinals.

A little under 6,000 spectators turned out to watch Yugoslavia lose to Czechoslovakia 3-1. Whereas a crowd of 76,600 watched Brazil beat the hosts 4-2, even though this saw Garrincha sent off for Brazil and Landa sent off for Chile. Chile eventually went on to take third place in a 1-0 victory over Yugoslavia.

Santiago's Estadio Nacional served as the venue for the Final itself, and after 15 minutes, yet again Brazil found themselves a goal behind in the World Cup Final, as a long ball from Scherer was latched onto by Masopust: 1-0 Czechoslovakia. However, just like the previous Final four years earlier, Brazil soon hit back, equalising two minutes later with a goal from Amarildo. The Brazilians did not stop there and with goals from Zito and Vava mid-way through the second half, the Czechoslovakians just couldn't get back into the game. With the game ending 3-1 to Brazil, a successful defence of the title for only the second time in the history of the competition, and without their star player of 1958, Pel, saw Brazil were once again crowned World Cup Winners.
