In Chile 1962 Brazil showed how big was his superiority. So big that it became champion despite losing his biggest star Pelé because of an injury in his second game.

By defeating the Czech Republic 3-1 in the final match, Brazil was crowned as two-time champion in a tournament that didn't have too much bright and that was shadowed by the violence inside the courts, where same games became battle fields of kicks (and some punches)
