Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Thursday, 21 July 2022 is 1938 FIFA World Cup Final.

The 1938 FIFA World Cup Final was the third edition of the football quadrennial tournament match contested by the men's national teams of FIFA to determine the 1938 FIFA World Cup champions: Italy and Hungary. Italy defended its claim to the championship 4–2 in the last tournament before World War II.

The "final" match took place at the Stade Olympique de Colombes in Paris. Vittorio Pozzo's Italian side took the lead early, but Hungary equalised within two minutes. The Italians shortly regained the lead, and by the end of the first half were leading the Hungarians 3–1. At 4–2, Italy successfully defended its title, the inaugural team to win on foreign soil.

The last survivor of the game was Italy's Pietro Rava, who died on 5 November 2006 at the age of 90.
