Brazil's determination to put on a show meant they built the world's biggest football stadium, the Maracana, for the 1950 FIFA World CupÖ. Yet their dream of becoming the world's best died in that huge bowl, Uruguay capturing their second crown by beating the hosts in front of some 200,000 stunned spectators. It was not the only shock of a tournament where debutants England were humbled by the United States.
