The game was famous for Gordan Banks' stunning save from Pele's header and for Bobby Moore's perfectly-timed tackle on Jairzinho<br />
<br />
Pele, who is currently in hospital for treatment for colon cancer, wore the short-sleeve top in the first half of the match and had to change it and half-time, probably because it had been torn at the collar.<br />

Following Brazil's 1-0 win over England, Pele swapped his replacement shirt with Moore in another famous moment from the game.
