The biggest upset in world football, the biggest shock in world football and also, the biggest choke.
Brazil needed only a draw in front of 200,000 of their fans at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, and they even gave themselves some cushion with Friaca's 47th minute goal.
It wasn't enough though.
Juan Schiaffino scored the equalizer in the 66th minute, and then, 10 minutes from time, Alcides Ghiggia flew down the right side, scored what would be the World Cup winner and silenced the crowd.
This was such a big choke that many Brazilians refused to acknowledge it, the national team changed their uniforms and many of the 1950 squad quietly left football.
The Marcana stadium is currently undergoing renovations and should be ready by the 2014 World Cup. I wouldn't be surprised if the final wasn't held there though.
