Comments

For the first time in World Cup history, a final match was decided by penalties. After an opaque game that ended tied 0-0, Brazil defeated Italy 3-2 on penalties.

The big surprise of USA 94 was the disqualification of superstar Diego Maradona after failing a doping test for substance called ephedrine. Argentina, one of the top candidates, couldn't recover from the shock and was eliminated by Rumania in the second round.
