The 1994 FIFA World Cup Final was a football match that took place at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, United States, on 17 July 1994 to determine the winner of the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Brazil beat Italy 3–2 on penalties to claim their fourth World Cup title when the match finished 0–0 after extra time; this meant that Brazil surpassed Italy and Germany as the tournament's most successful nation.[2] It was the first World Cup final to be both scoreless in regular and extra time and to be decided by a penalty shoot-out. Brazil had previously beaten Italy in the 1970 final, marking the 1994 final as the second time that the same teams had met in two different World Cup finals, after Argentina and Germany met in 1986 and 1990.[3][4]

The victorious Brazil team dedicated their win to the late triple Formula One world champion Ayrton Senna, who had died in an accident at that year's San Marino Grand Prix two and a half months previously.

Franco Baresi became the sixth player in history who has won gold, silver and bronze medals at the FIFA World Cup.[5][6]
