For the Battle of Bern, Baltazar, Pinga and Rodrigues were replaced by Humberto, Indio and Maurinho.
1966 they switched the team for each 3 games.
Manga for Gilmar
Fidelis and Rildo for Djalma and Paulo Henrique.
Orlando and Brito for Bellini and Altair.
Gerson for Lima.
Tostao and Walter Da Silva for Pele and Alcindo.
In the third game Jairzinho was on the right instead of Garrincha, and Parana came to the left.
Almost the entire team was switched for the third game against Portugal. Says Pele: "It would have been ridiculous in a junior league. In the World Cup, against one of the strongest teams in the tournament, it was suicidal."
There is some small mistakes on the formations, i didnt thought they meant to be realistic. For example, in 82, Cerezo did the right side, not left, as he was primary the fake wing there (with Socrates and Zico backing)
