World Cup 2002 - Brazil

The final match of the 2002 FIFA World Cup, played between Germany and Brazil at the International Stadium in Yokohama, Japan. It was the first (and, to date, only) World Cup meeting between the two sides. Brazil won the match 2–0, winning a record fifth title. Ronaldo, who became the record World Cup goalscorer at the 2006 tournament, scored two of his fifteen World Cup goals in the second half of the match, leading Brazil to the title and winning the Golden Boot award. This match also marked Brazilian captain Cafu’s third appearance in a World Cup Final, a feat that has yet to be accomplished by any other player in the history of the tournament. Both teams had won their respective groups before advancing to the knockout stage, where Germany shut out all of their opponents en route to the final, while Brazil only allowed a single goal from England. Germany advanced past the surprisingly advanced United States and co-host South Korea, while Brazil knocked out England.

The title marked Brazil’s fifth World Cup championship, which is more than any other nation has achieved, also being the first team to win all seven of their games without any extra time or penalty kicks. Germany lost the World Cup Final for its fourth time, another tournament record. They were attempting to tie Brazil for most championships with a win, as the team had already won three.
