Requested move[edit]

Football World Cup 1962 → 1962 FIFA World Cup – following the consensus of naming the World Cup articles as FIFA World Cup in Wikipedia, and consistency of naming the major international football tournaments.

Discuss here: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Competitions#Requested move of Football World Cup articles. --Pkchan 10:41, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Moved per consensus. --Pkchan 13:02, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Dražan Jerković[edit]

In 1990, after a verification of the cup's archives by FIFA, it was determined that a goal that was originaly given to Milan Galic was a mistake and that the goal was actually scored by Dražan Jerković. This means that, with five golas, Dražan Jerković is the top scorer (and only top scorer) of the 1962 World Cup. The page should be corrected. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 186.137.76.242 (talk) 14:03, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

This is not true. FIFA.com still records several players as having been the top scorer at the 1962 World Cup. – PeeJay 08:19, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

This is true, he was the top scorer. FIFA did a review and found out that a goal was given to someone else. Source: http://www.planetworldcup.com/GUESTS/peter20060514.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lucasliso (talkcontribs) 19:18, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Golden Ball Player[edit]

Shouldn't you guys put Garrincha as the best player, since FIFA retroactively named the best players of each tournament? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.191.4.240 (talk) 06:50, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't understand. Do you have a reference for this? --Walter Görlitz (talk) 06:55, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
After a bit of research I think I understand. He was given the golden ball award retroactively. I suppose that we could add an awards section and include this piece of information. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 07:02, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
