players we showed you were: Brazilian legend Pele (left), Germany's Paul Breitner (top), France's Zinedine Zidane (right) and another Brazilian, Vava.

And the answer? They are the only players in World Cup history to have scored goals in two separate World Cup finals.

Breitner scored for West Germany in 1974 and 1982, while Zidane scored for France in 1998 and 2006.

And the Brazilian pair? Pele scored in the 1958 and 1970 finals, and Vava found the net in 1958 and 1962. Pele might well have scored in the 1962 final as well - but an injury early in the tournament had ruled him out.
