This World Cup saw the emergence of the great Pele. The 17-year-old Pele became the youngest ever winner of the World Cup.

Brazil won the first World Cup by beating the hosts Sweden 5-2, with Pele scoring a second-half hat-trick.

Pele missed the first two matches of the 1958 World Cup, before making his debut against Russia.

His first World Cup goal came in the 1-0 quarter-final win over Wales and he scored a hat-trick in the semifinal against France and two more in the final over host nation Sweden.
