    We've tested the audio on several browsers and it seems to be working correctly.

    this match changed brazilian football, and football in general for a long time. Italy did their job well but for me as a purist, it was a bit of a tragedy

  4. Janco_Tianno March 23, 2021 20:42

    I understand mr. Scognamiglio is a licenced coach, but no way Italy was playing 4-2-3-1 with a rigid back-four in 1982. Correct formation would be "il gioco all'italiana": Zoff in goal, Scirea as a "libero" behind Gentile (stopper) and Collovati (terzino), Cabrini as the attacking left wing back, Oriali as the "mediano" (defensive mid), Tardelli box-to-box midfielder, Antognoni as a "regista", Graziani and Rossi the two forwards (Graziani was the one playing in the left side channel the most). Also, Brazil's formation was more of a 4-2-2-2 with Falcao, Cerezo, Socrates and Zico in a midfield square and Eder - Serginho as forwards.

    Forgot Conti as the "ala tornante" on the right (essentially a defensive winger)

    That Italy formation doesn't mean the back four was rigid. It's a stative representation of something dynamic. It's not intended to reflect small nuances, just the starting position to offer everyone a reference of where every player was playing. As for Brazil, interpreting that as 4-2-2-2 or 4-4-1-1 is subjective. Zico often drops back behind Serginho, while Éder and Falcão play on the flanks, though not wide. How high all of them should be displayed is a matter of interpretation.

    Well IMO representing Italy's formation without the libero, which has been the trademark of Italian football for more than 30 years with no exception in the 1982 WC, it's not a small nuance but something that's conceptually wrong and historically inaccurate. I understand it's not easy to graphically represent a team using a man-marking system but the historical facts are Italy playing "il gioco all'italiana" and, in Brazil's case, Falcao not being a right-winger in a 4-4-1-1. A large number of historically accurate sources, that probably overrule any "interpretation", also corroborate these statements. Now I don't have anything personal with whoever is in charge of describing the game lineups on Footballia, but I would have expected a higher degree of research and historical accuracy rather than someone's interpretation of the player positions.

    We appreciate your insight. It shows that you enjoy tactics, and so do we. You can rest assured that we've watched tons of old matches. That's why we started this project in the first place. It's not for lack of knowledge that we displayed it this way. This was not meant as an in-depth analysis. We have over 22,000 matches to analyze and we can't make in-depth analyses of every one of them. We merely meant to provide a guide so the viewers know in which area the players played. But of course, we're counting on the viewers' knowledge to interpret it as a dynamic situation, be it Italy's libero and man-to-man marking or the fluency of Brazil's midfield (Falcão is not depicted as a right winger, but rather as an inside right). As we said, thank you for your views. Email us if you'd like to contribute your knowledge to the project.

    I’m using Safari and no sound !

  11. Alberto83 December 25, 2020 21:07

    The tactical formation of Italy is incorrect: Gentile is the right back and Oriali is a midfielder: their positions must be exchanged... Can you correct, please? :)

  12. Footballia
    Footballia December 27, 2020 13:15

    If you watch the match with attention, you'll see the formation is right. Gentile was usually a right back, and Orialia was a midfielder. But this formation reflects the way they started playing in this particular match. As you can read above, this formation was verified by a licensed coach, an Italian coach for that matter.

    che schifo , telecronaca di caressa, ma non si poteva trovare una partita originale, questa è un remake di sky

    L'hai detto tu, non si è potuto. Avevamo una copia originale della tv brasiliana, ma la qualità dell'immagine era peggiore.

    este partido marco el fulbo por los 15 años siguientes.dos escuelas bien diferentes .italia fue superior manejo los tiempos .

  16. pistaman June 23, 2020 01:11

    Junior falhou nos 3 gols, Serginho pipocou na cara do gol 2x.

  17. Lepe June 20, 2020 12:24

    Brazil 4-2-3-1

  18. Goleador June 19, 2020 08:36

    Una grandissima partita di calcio, praticamente conta come un'eliminazione diretta anche se al Brasile bastava un pareggio per passare. Ci sono sorprese per tutta la partita, gol di vantaggio, altri pareggi, insomma, è veramente spettacolare e le due squadre giocano benissimo. Rossi è l'uomo partita, una prestazione incredibile da parte sua. Credo comunque che qui qualsiasi squadra potesse passare il turno, veramente eccezionale. Grande match / Great match.

  19. Verito June 07, 2020 02:55

    Un gran partido . fatal para Brasil la actuacion de Cerezo, gran jugador pero tuvo su dia negro

  20. Follador April 23, 2020 19:00

    Uno de los mejore partidos de la historia.

  21. alejo April 04, 2020 21:00

    Se corta la imagen cada 15 seg. es imposible ver este partido tan maravilloso. Existe una forma distinta para poder verlo bien? además le doy fullscrean y se devuelve siempre al recuadro pequeño. Qué puedo hacer para verlo bien?

    debe ser uno de los partidos de mayor emoción en las copas mundiales, notable el equipo Italiano que derrotó a un gran equipo Brasileño, se extraña ese fútbol hoy en día......

    The best of the match: Rossi and Zoff (ITA); Falcão and Zico (Bra).

  36. mel September 25, 2019 20:10

    Historical game

  37. ellisyum July 12, 2019 17:18

    Posiblemente la mejor selección de Brasil. Me gusta más que la de 1970. Pero bueno... el fútbol es así.

  38. PatC June 28, 2019 08:48

    Sound is perfect

  39. 3absi June 08, 2019 03:41

    Brazil coach is responsible , he should't invite Serginho to the team, Dirceu is better than him.

  40. Andrea November 04, 2018 10:45

    Hello, No sound problem here, everything is ok.

    There must be something wrong with the way your browser reads the file because, as we said, the sound is working fine. You might try playing the video on a different browser. Sometimes that helps.
