Winners Brazil 3-1 against Czechoslovakia
Chile staged the least remembered World Cup just one year after being devastated by an earthquake and play on the field suffered badly from a safety-first attitude of all teams ranging from the Italians' catenacchio to even a cautious Brazilian 4-3-3 approach.
Of those tipped to do well Uruguay and Argentina bowed out in the first round, which also saw the "Battle of Santiago" between Chile and Italy.
English referee Ken Aston sent off Italians Ferrini and Mario David, but a fist from Leonel Sanchez which broke Italian Humberto Maschio's nose went un-penalized just like the spitting and kicking of other Chileans who eventually won 2-1.
Brazil lost Pele through a muscle injury early in the tournament, but Garrincha and Zagalo stepped in to see them into the final with a 3-1 against England and 4-2 over Chile in the knockout stages.
The Czechs with their superb goalkeeper Schroif won the second semi 1-0 over Yugoslavia, who earlier in their third attempt beat Germany. But Schroif then blundered in the final after Masopust had given the Czechs an early lead.
Pele-substitute Amarildo netted the equalizer from a tight angle and Vava's and Zito's goals also resulted Schroif mistakes which steered Brazil to back-to-back titles while the Czechs had to settle for their second runner-up spot.
