Tactics Explained: A History Of The World Cup

Tactics Explained: A History Of The World Cup

The period of 1930 to 1950 saw only four World Cups due to the hiatus of World War 2. Tactically, though, despite the twenty-year span, tactical evolution occurred at a slower pace, marked by moments of innovation rather than the massive shifts that would come after 1950.

This video covers the delicate tactical shifts that occurred during that 20 year period.

Brazil 1950: A History Of The World Cup

Brazil is the country most synonymous with the World Cup, and 1950 was their first chance to host. They expected to win it, too, but a collective psyche-shattering defeat in the final would lead to wholesale changes in the national team set up.

This video covers the history of that tournament.



Tactics Explained | 1954-1966: A History Of The World Cup

While football developed a lot between 1930 and 1950, it was still largely unrecognisable from the game we see today. Between 1954 and 1966, however, the game changed and morphed into a more familiar form with the development of the back four.



Sweden 1958: A History Of The World Cup

The 1958 World Cup was the sixth staging of the tournament. Held in Sweden, it marked the first time a team had won it away from their own continent as Brazil finally overcame the pain of 1950 and lifted the Jules Rimet trophy for the first time.



In due course uMAXit Football will focus their attention on the 1962 World Cup up until the modern day.
