Os Santásticos is the nickname for the group of Santos Futebol Clube players coached by Lula and Antoninho that won a total of 25 titles between 1959 and 1974, including two Copa Libertadores. Considered one of the strongest teams assembled in any sport, scoring over 3000 goals during this period, with an average of over 2.5 goals per match. Known as O Balé Branco or Time dos Sonhos, they dominated Brazilian football and became a symbol of Jogo Bonito thanks to figures such as Gilmar, Mengálvio, Coutinho and the iconic Pelé. Pele made Santos FC famous around the world in this revolutionary era, therefore his lesser-known teammates are best known as "Pele's friends." In 1956, Waldemar de Brito took Pelé to Santos, an industrial and port city in the state of São Paulo, to try out for professional club Santos Futebol Clube telling the directors at Santos that the 15-year-old would be "the greatest football player in the world." Santos were at the time the top team in São Paulo, having just won two consecutive State champions when Pelé joined.
Aged 15, Pelé made his debut for Santos on 7 September 1956, scoring one goal in a 7–1 friendly victory over Corinthians de Santo André. When the 1957 season started, Pelé was given a starting place in the first team and, at the age of just 16, became the top scorer in the league. Just ten months after signing professionally, the teenager was called up to the Brazil national team. After the World Cup in 1962, wealthy European clubs such as Real Madrid and Manchester United tried to sign the young player, but the government of Brazil declared Pelé an "official national treasure" to prevent him from being transferred out of the country. Pelé won his first major title with Santos in 1958. A year O Rei would help the team earn their first victory in the Torneio Rio-São Paulo with a 3–0 over Vasco da Gama. However, Santos was unable to retain the Paulista title. In 1960, Pelé scored 33 goals to help his team regain the Campeonato Paulista trophy but lost out on the Rio-São Paulo tournament after finishing in a disappointing 8th place.
Another 47 goals from Pelé saw. The club went on to win the Taça Brasil that same year; the victory allowed Santos to participate in the Copa Libertadores, the most prestigious club tournament in the Western hemisphere. In March 1961, Pelé scored the gol de placa, against Fluminense at the Maracanã. Pelé received the ball on the edge of his own penalty area, ran the length of the field, eluding opposition players, fired the ball beyond the goalkeeper; the goal was regarded as being so spectacular that a plaque was commissioned with a dedication to the most beautiful goal in the history of the Maracanã. Santos' most successful club season started in 1962. Santos defeated Universidad Católica in the semifinals and met defending champions Peñarol in the finals in which Pelé scored another brace in the playoff match to secure the first title for a Brazilian club. Pelé finished as the second best scorer of the competition with 4 goals; that same year, Santos would defend, with success, the Campeonato Paulista, the Taça Brasil, win the 1962 Intercontinental Cup against Benfica.
Wearing his iconic number 10 shirt, Pelé produced one of his best performances and scored a hat-trick in Lisbon, as Santos beat the European champions 5–2. 38 players were used throughout the season, with Lima being the most used by playing in 74 matches. Santos tried to defend their title again in 1964 but they were beaten in both legs of the semifinals by Independiente. Santos won again the Campeonato Paulista, with Pelé netting 34 goals; the club shared the Rio-São Paulo title with Botafogo and win the Taça Brasil for the fourth consecutive year. The Santistas would try to resurge in 1965 by winning, for the 9th time, the Campeonato Paulista and the Taça Brasil. In the 1965 Copa Libertadores, Santos started convincingly by winning every match of their group in the first round. In the semifinals, Santos met Peñarol in a rematch of the 1962 final. After two legendary matches, a playoff was needed to break the tie. Unlike 1962, Peñarol came out on top and eliminated Santos 2–1. Pelé would, finish as the topscorer of the tournament with eight goals.
36 players were used throughout the season, with Dorval being the most used by playing in 61 matches. 32 players were used throughout the season, with Lima being the most used by playing in 68 matches. 42 players were used throughout the season, with Geraldino being the most used by playing in 67 matches. In 1966, Pelé and Santos failed to retain the Taça Brasil as O Rei's goals weren't enough to prevent a 9–4 routing by Cruzeiro in the final series. Although Santos won the Campeonato Paulista in 1967, 1968 and 1969, Pelé became less and less a contributing factor to the Santistas now-limited success. On 19 November 1969, Pelé scored his 1000th goal in all competitions; this was a anticipated moment in Brazil. The goal, called popularly O Milésimo, occurred in a match against Vasco da Gama, when Pelé scored from a penalty kick, at the Maracanã Stadi
1950 FIFA World Cup
The 1950 FIFA World Cup, held in Brazil from 24 June to 16 July 1950, was the fourth FIFA World Cup. It was the first World Cup since 1938, the planned 1942 and 1946 competitions having been cancelled due to World War II, it was won by Uruguay, who had won the inaugural competition in 1930. They clinched the cup by beating the hosts Brazil 2–1 in the deciding match of the four-team final group; this was the only tournament not decided by a one-match final. It was the first tournament where the trophy was referred to as the Jules Rimet Cup, to mark the 25th anniversary of Jules Rimet's presidency of FIFA; because of World War II, the World Cup had not been staged since 1938. After the war, FIFA were keen to resurrect the competition as soon as possible, they began making plans for a World Cup tournament to take place. In the aftermath of the war, much of Europe lay in ruins; as a result, FIFA had some difficulties finding a country interested in hosting the event, since many governments believed that their scarce resources ought to be devoted to more urgent priorities than a sporting celebration.
The World Cup was at risk of not being held for sheer lack of interest from the international community, until Brazil presented a bid at the 1946 FIFA Congress, offering to host the event on condition that the tournament take place in 1950. Brazil and Germany had been the leading bidders to host the cancelled 1942 World Cup. Brazil's new bid was similar to the mooted 1942 bid and was accepted. Having secured a host nation, FIFA would still dedicate some time to persuading countries to send their national teams to compete. Italy was of particular interest as the long-standing defending champions, having won the two previous tournaments in 1934 and 1938; the Italians were persuaded to attend, but travelled by boat rather than by plane. Brazil and Italy qualified automatically. Of these, seven were allocated to Europe, six to the Americas, one to Asia. Both Germany and Japan were unable to participate; the Japan Football Association, the German Football Association were not readmitted to FIFA until September 1950, while the Deutscher Fußball-Verband der DDR in East Germany was not admitted to FIFA until 1952.
The French-occupied Saarland had been accepted by FIFA two weeks before the World Cup. Italy and other countries, involved in World War II as allies of Germany and Japan, were able to participate in qualification. Italy qualified automatically as defending champions of 1938. Finland, despite being a co-belligerent of Nazi Germany from 1941-1944, was allowed to qualify but withdrew before qualification was complete, FIFA declared their matches as friendlies; the British nations were invited to take part, having rejoined FIFA four years earlier, after 17 years of self-imposed exile. It was decided to use the 1949–50 British Home Championship as a qualifying group, with the top two teams qualifying. England finished first and Scotland second. A number of teams refused to participate in the qualifying tournament, including most nations behind the Iron Curtain, such as the Soviet Union, 1934 finalists Czechoslovakia and 1938 finalists Hungary. Yugoslavia was the only Eastern European nation to take part in the tournament.
Argentina and Peru in South America withdrew after the qualifying draw, in Argentina's case because of a dispute with the Brazilian Football Confederation. This meant that Chile, Bolivia and Uruguay qualified from South America by default. In Asia, the Philippines and Burma all withdrew, leaving India to qualify by default. In Europe, Austria withdrew. Belgium withdrew from the qualification tournament; these withdrawals meant that Switzerland and Turkey qualified without having to play their final round of matches. The following 16 teams qualified for the final tournament. However, only 13 teams would in the end participate in the World Cup after withdrawals by the rest. Before the qualification competition, George Graham, chairman of the Scottish Football Association, had said that Scotland would only travel to Brazil as winners of the Home Championship.. After Scotland ended up in second place behind England, the Scottish captain George Young, encouraged by England captain Billy Wright, pleaded with the SFA to change its mind and accept the place in Brazil.
Turkey withdrew, citing financial problems and the cost of travelling to South America. FIFA invited Portugal and France, eliminated in qualifying, to fill the gaps left by Scotland and Turkey. Portugal and Ireland refused, but France accepted, was entered into the draw; the draw, held in Rio on 22 May 1950, allocated the fifteen remaining teams into four groups: The teams' pre-tournament Elo rankings are shown in parenthesis. After the draw, the Indian football association AIFF decided against going to the World Cup, citing travel costs (although FIFA had agreed

In 1909, a group of young men met in the Clube Ginástico Teuto-Brasileiro Turnverein, where the German immigrant community of Curitiba gathered to play a variety of sports. In July of that year, a prominent member of the club, Frederico "Fritz" Essenfelder arrived with a leather ball in hand.
He explained to his friends that it was a football and he explained the rules of this new game. Fritz and his friends within the club started organizing matches in the field of the Quartel da Força Pública. An invitation came to play a match against a club of workers, many of them British, from the Ponta Grossa railway. On 12 October 1909, Fritz called a meeting in the old Theatro Hauer to arrange the first match. A decision was made to form a football club, he would call it Teuto-Brasileiro. Teuto-Brasileiro would be the first football club in the state of Paraná. On 23 October 1909, in Ponta Grossa, the club had its first official match; the opponents were Clube de Foot Ball de Tiro Pontagrossense, made up of employees from the South American Brazilian Engineering Company. The match was won with a 1 -- 0 scoreline, the goal being scored by Elias Mota.

On 30 January 1910, the independent Coritibano Foot Ball Club was formed; the name was chosen. The first club meeting was held 21 April 1910, after they had acquired all of the rules of the sport. During this meeting, the first Board of Directors was formed, naming João Viana Seiler as president, Arthur Hauer as vice-president, José Júlio Franco and Leopoldo Obladen as first and second secretary and Walter Dietrich and Alvim Hauer as first and second treasurer respectively. Fritz was named captain of the team, it was during this meeting that the name of the club was changed, this time to Coritiba, after the old name of the capital of Paraná. This was to avoid confusion with a social club in the city called Coritibano.
The foundation of Coritiba Foot Ball Club launched organized football in the state of Paraná. The search for a football ground began and the Hipódromo do Guabirotuba was chosen, it was the home of the Jockey Clube do Paraná until 1955.

1930 FIFA World Cup
The 1930 FIFA World Cup was the inaugural FIFA World Cup, the world championship for men's national association football teams. It took place in Uruguay from 13 to 30 July 1930. FIFA, football's international governing body, selected Uruguay as host nation, as the country would be celebrating the centenary of its first constitution, the Uruguay national football team had retained their football title at the 1928 Summer Olympics. All matches were played in the Uruguayan capital, the majority at the Estadio Centenario, built for the tournament. Thirteen teams entered the tournament. Only a few European teams chose to participate because of the difficulty of travelling to South America; the teams were divided into four groups, with the winner of each group progressing to the semi-finals. The first two World Cup matches took place and were won by France and the United States, who defeated Mexico 4–1 and Belgium 3–0, respectively. Lucien Laurent of France scored the first goal in World Cup history, while US goalkeeper Jimmy Douglas posted the first official "clean sheet" in the tournament.
Argentina, the United States and Yugoslavia each won their respective groups to qualify for the semi-finals. In the final and pre-tournament favourites Uruguay defeated Argentina 4–2 in front of a crowd of 68,346 people, became the first nation to win the World Cup; the first World Cup was the only one without qualification. Every country affiliated with FIFA was invited to compete, given a deadline of 28 February 1930 to accept. Plenty of interest was shown by nations in the Americas. A total of seven South American teams more than in any subsequent World Cup Finals. However, because of the long and costly trip by ship across the Atlantic Ocean, the length of absence required for players few European teams were inclined to take part; some refused to countenance travel to South America in any circumstances, no European entries were received before the February deadline. In an attempt to gain some European participation, the Uruguayan Football Association sent a letter of invitation to The Football Association though the British Home Nations had resigned from FIFA at the time.
This was rejected by the FA Committee on 18 November 1929. Two months before the start of the tournament, no team from Europe had entered. FIFA president Jules Rimet intervened, four European teams made the trip by sea: Belgium, France and Yugoslavia; the Romanians, managed by Constantin Rădulescu and coached by their captain Rudolf Wetzer and Octav Luchide, entered the competition following the intervention of newly crowned King Carol II. He selected the squad and negotiated with employers to ensure that the players would still have jobs upon their return; the French entered at the personal intervention of Rimet, but neither France's star defender Manuel Anatol nor the team's regular coach Gaston Barreau could be persuaded to make the trip. The Belgians participated at the instigation of German-Belgian FIFA vice-president Rodolphe Seeldrayers; the Romanians boarded the SS Conte Verde at Genoa, the French were picked up at Villefranche-sur-Mer, France on 21 June 1930. The Conte Verde carried Rimet, the trophy and the three designated European referees: the Belgians Jean Langenus and Henri Christophe, along with Thomas Balway, a Parisian who may have been English.
The Brazilian team were picked up when the boat docked in Rio de Janeiro, D. F. on 29 June before arriving in Uruguay on 4 July. Yugoslavia travelled via the mail steamship Florida from France. In the Kingdom of Yugoslavia there were doubts about their participation at first. Since the Croatians decided to boycott the national team, King Alexander I did not want to finance the whole idea, but in the end they found a solution. Belgrade, Yugoslavia football association officials decided to round up only domestic star players from two rival Belgrade clubs, BSK and SK Jugoslavija, with an additional three Serbs who played for French clubs. Therefore, the Yugoslavia team was made up of Serbian players; the Yugoslavians were the youngest team in the World Cup. After their first match, against Brazil, they received a new nickname "The Ich-es" or "Ichachos" by the Uruguayan press, they achieved the joint–biggest success in both Yugoslav and Serbian subsequent World Cup footballing history, by earning fourth place, a result that would be repeated in 1962.
Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Uruguay all lodged applications to host the event. Uruguay's bid became the clear selection. All matches. Three stadiums were used: Estadio Centenario, Estadio Pocitos, Estadio Parque Central; the Estadio Centenario was built both for the tournament and as a celebration of the centenary of Uruguayan independence. Designed by Juan Scasso, it was the primary stadium for the tournament, referred to by Rimet as a "temple of football". With a capacity of 90,000, it was the largest football stadium outside the British Isles; the stadium
The Roca Cup was a football competition contested between Argentina and Brazil national teams from 1914 to 1976 on irregular basis. The Copa Roca was the first trophy, official or unofficial won by a Brazilian national team; the competition was created by former President of Argentina, General Julio Argentino Roca, in 1913. A football enthusiast, Roca was at the time the Argentine ambassador in Brazil and felt matches between both countries would create a healthy rivalry and help the sport to develop; the Cup would be played each year in a different country, a fact, kept in spite of the many changes to the Cup's format. Roca donated a trophy to dissident body Federación Argentina de Football and it was agreed that the competition would be played for three consecutive years in a single-leg format and the country with two wins would conquer the trophy forever, but in 1915 the FAF merged with Argentine Football Association, the following matches were not played. In 1922, the Brazilian Football Confederation agreed to play the competition again, which Brazil won for the second time, thus claimed the Roca Cup ownership though Argentina beat them the following year.
In 1938, both football associations, AFA and CBF, accepted to play the competition once again. The format was changed and the trophy would be kept by the most recent winner. In case the first two matches finished in draws or each team had a win a third leg had to be played. In January 1939, Argentina got a 5-1 victory in Rio de Janeiro; the following game was packed with incidents and the visiting team left the pitch enraged after the referee awarded a penalty to Brazil. However the home side went on to score a third goal when the Argentine team had left the field in protest. A third and fourth match were played in São Paulo; the 1940 edition was played in Argentina, where Argentina won two matches and Brazil won one. In 1957's match, at Maracanã, Pelé made his debut in Brazilian National Team, drafted by coach Sylvio Pirillo, where he scored the first of many goals with the Brazilian jersey. From 1940 on, Brazil won every edition, except for the 1971 Cup, when with two draws, the Cup was declared tied.
