Barbosa was, perhaps, the player who was more sad by that defeat. He was widely criticized and people considered him guilty for the loss of the title. ''In Brazil, the largest penalty for a crime (prison) is 30 years. I paid for a crime I didn't commit since 1950, 43 years ago'' Barbosa said, 1993. It was what he felt with the judgment of the people, especially in the yearsafter 1950.
