When Vicente Feola took over the Selecao, he demanded more of his players than any other manager in Brazil’s history. His strict discipline was partnered with a superstar laden squad that was unprecedented in world football. Under Feola’s guidance, Garrincha, Pele, and Zito played some of the most beautiful football the world had ever seen. They won back-to-back World Cups in 1958 and 1962, with Feola at the helm for the first one, before winning a third in 1970. The team was also a focal point of inspiration for the country as it struggled to adjust to living life under a military dictatorship.
