    Fourteen teams, along with defending champs England and host country Mexico, were involved in the final stage of the tournament. From among them, Uruguay, West Germany, Italy, and Brazil made it to the final four, with the latter two meeting in the championship match. In this contest, Pelé and Brazil bested their Italian counterparts easily by a score of 4-1 at Estadio Azteca before the enormous crowd of 107,412 spectators. This victory represented Brazil's third World Cup which, per rules at the time, allowed them to keep the initial Jules Rimet trophy, thus necessitating a new trophy to be created for the next World Cup in 1974. Sadly, this cup was stolen in Rio de Janeiro in 1983, never to be seen again and likely melted by the looters.
