It is a battle of the world’s best at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena as Brazil and Italy meet in the final of the FIFA World Cup. Each country had won three previous World Cup championships and was looking to become the first nation to win the World Cup four times. It would be the first time the World Cup was decided on penalties as teams played to a scoreless tie. Brazil would win the World Cup 3-2 in the shootout.
