How Did Brazil Start?

Initially, the Brazil football team was not a brilliant team, the reason behind it was internal strife in the team management. Brazil got a chance to play the first FIFA World Cup in 1930, The team traveled to Uruguay. But the dream of winning a world remained a dream.

In 1950, Brazil got a chance to host FIFA World Cup for the first time and it was the first time when Brazil qualified for the final match against Uruguay. Unfortunately, Brazil is defeated by Uruguay in the last game of the FIFA World Cup.

The Final of the 1950 FIFA World Cup was almost won by Brazil but Uruguay scored in just 11 minutes remaining and won the title for the second time. This was the turning point for the Brazil Football Team.

Winning World Cup is a dream that was not going to convert into reality for Brazil, so it was time to take some strong decisions to make team stronger. Brazil’s head, Vicente Feola made some strict rules for the team to make it strong enough to win a world cup. He created a list of 40 things to avoid during specified times.

The team of USSR was one of the strongest teams in the tournament, and the players of the team were extremely fit.

Brazil made a strategy to attack and score an early goal as soon as possible. Eventually, Brazil managed to win the match by 2-0. Then they beat France by 5-2. In the final match, Brazil had to fight against Sweden. Sweden had an opportunity at the home ground but Brazil’s hard work defeated Sweden by 5-2 and won their First World Cup in 1958.

Brazil took 24 years to win their first FIFA world cup and then created history of winning the most world cups. The hard work after the 1954 world cup gave results to Brazil, In the 1962 World Cup in Chile, Brazil won their second world cup.
