Ahead of Sunday's FIFA World Cup final between Germany and Argentina, we take a look at the previous coaches to have won the tournament.
Alberto Suppici (1930 - Uruguay)
Suppici - known as El Profesor - guided host nation Uruguay to victory in the first World Cup in 1930.
Having founded hometown club Plaza Colonia (now playing in Uruguay's second tier) in 1917, the former Nacional defender became the youngest coach to win the tournament - aged 31 – when masterminding the nation's 4-2 win against Argentina in Montevideo.
Vittorio Pozzo (1934, 1938 - Italy)
The legendary Italian remains the only coach to win two World Cups, having triumphed at successive tournaments. Pozzo watched on as Italy defeated Czechoslovakia 2-1 on home soil in 1934 and then oversaw Italy's 4-2 victory over Hungary four years later in Paris - the final World Cup before World War II.
In the midst of their World Cup success, Pozzo coached Italy to a memorable 30-game unbeaten streak between 1934 and 1939. He is also remembered for winning two Central European International Cups (1930 and 1935) and a gold medal at the 1936 Olympic Games.
Juan Lopez Fontana (1950 - Uruguay)
Fontana started his coaching career as a medical assistant for Central Espanol - a team coached by Uruguayan icon Suppici.
After World War II, the Montevideo native took charge of the national team in 1947 and went on to lead them to a stunning success at the 1950 World Cup, courtesy of a 2-1 victory that shocked hosts Brazil.
Fontana also coached Uruguay to the semi-finals of the 1954 tournament before spending a year in charge of Ecuador in 1959.
Sepp Herberger (1954 - West Germany)
Former striker Herberger enjoyed a lengthy spell in charge of the West German national team spanning almost three decades.
Promoted from his role as assistant to Otto Nerz in 1936, he eventually tasted World Cup glory 18 years later in Switzerland.
West Germany defeated resounding favourites Hungary 3-2 in a match referred to as The Miracle of Bern.
Vicente Feola (1958 - Brazil)
Having won back-to-back Campeonato Paulista titles with Brazilian powerhouse Sao Paulo in 1948 and 1949, Feola took control of the national team in 1958, with his appointment bringing immediate glory.
Aided by a 17-year-old Pele making an indelible mark on the biggest stage, Brazil demolished Sweden, the tournament hosts, 5-2 in the final.
Feola's team remains the only non-European side to have won the World Cup on European soil.
Aymore Moreira (1962 - Brazil)
First in control of the national team in 1953, Moreira returned to the helm eight years later and subsequently witnessed his team come from behind to beat Czechoslovakia 3-2 in the 1962 final in Chile.
After securing Brazil's second world title in succession, Moreira briefly coached his country again between 1967 and 1968 before moving on to the likes of Corinthians, Boavista, Porto and Panathinaikos.
Alf Ramsey (1966 - England)
The only man to have secured World Cup success for England, Ramsey began his managerial career with Ipswich in 1955 and went on to lead the club from the Third Division to the First Division title in the space of seven years.
England soon came calling and Ramsey was able to deliver the ultimate success at Wembley Stadium in 1966.
A 4-2 victory over Germany, in a final that went to extra time, is chiefly remembered for Geoff Hurst's hat-trick and controversial second goal, which was awarded despite doubts over whether the ball had crossed the line.
Mario Zagallo (1970 - Brazil)
The first man to win the World Cup as a player and coach, Zagallo enjoys legendary status in Brazil.
After playing in his nation's triumphant teams in 1958 and 1962, the former Flamengo forward - in his second spell in charge of the national team - also lifted the trophy as manager in 1970 following Brazil's 4-1 rout of Italy in Mexico.
At the time of the latter triumph, Zagallo was just 38, making him the second-youngest coach to earn World Cup glory.
Helmut Schon (1974 - West Germany)
Schon was forced to suffer the agony of two near-misses before finally getting his hands on the World Cup trophy in 1974.
His side lost the final to England in 1966 and finished third four years later, yet UEFA European Championship success followed in 1972 and West Germany then ran out winners at their home 1974 World Cup, beating the Netherlands 2-1 in the final.
A former West Germany international, Schon coached for four more years, retiring after the 1978 World Cup in Argentina. He was unable to go out on a high as the defending champions bowed out in the second round.
Cesar Luis Menotti (1978 - Argentina)
Menotti guided his nation to World Cup glory midway through an eight-year stint at the helm.
Like West Germany before them, Argentina beat the Netherlands in their homeland to be crowned world champions.
Rosario-born Menotti, a striker during his playing days, vacated his role with the national team in 1982 and went on to enjoy spells with the likes of Barcelona, Boca Juniors, Independiente, River Plate, Atletico Madrid and Mexico.
Enzo Bearzot (1982 - Italy)
A defender who enjoyed two spells at both Inter and Torino as a player, Bearzot spent six years in charge of Italy's Under-23 side before serving as the assistant to Ferruccio Valcareggi at the 1974 World Cup.
He was duly promoted to the role of head coach and led the team to fourth place in the 1978 tournament before achieving greater success in Spain four years later.
Italy beat Germany 3-1 in the final to become world champions for a third time, having earlier recorded a memorable 3-2 win over Brazil with the aid of a hat-trick from Paolo Rossi.
Bearzot then resigned after his side were knocked out in the round of 16 at the 1986 World Cup, and did not coach again.
Carlos Bilardo (1986 - Argentina)
Bilardo was at the helm in 1986 as Argentina, with Diego Maradona an inspirational figure, triumphed in Mexico.
Now working as national team director, he is credited with influencing a host of coaches in his homeland, including current Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella.
Having taken charge of the likes of Estudiantes, Deportivo Cali and Colombia prior to leading Argentina to World Cup glory, Bilardo returned to the former for his most recent coaching role in the 2003-04 season.
Franz Beckenbauer (1990 - West Germany)
West Germany's success in 1990 saw Beckenbauer emulate Zagallo by winning the World Cup as a player and coach.
Part of West Germany's victorious team in 1974, the Bayern Munich great came close to glory 12 years later when his nation lost the World Cup final to Argentina.
Revenge came the way of Beckenbauer and his team at Italia '90, and he went on to enjoy brief stints as coach of Marseille and Bayern (twice).
Carlos Alberto Parreira (1994 - Brazil)
A true World Cup stalwart, the vastly experienced Parreira has coached at six World Cups, twice leading Brazil during the global showpiece.
After taking Kuwait (1982) and the United Arab Emirates (1990) to the World Cup, Parreira was the man who ensured Brazil ended a 24-year wait for a fourth world title in 1994.
He went on to coach Saudi Arabia and South Africa in 1998 and 2010 respectively, either side of a second World Cup with Brazil in 2006, which ended with a quarter-final defeat to France.
Aime Jacquet (1998 - France)
Following a playing career that brought only two international caps, Jacquet achieved significant success as a coach, leading France to their first world title.
The host nation's 3-0 victory over Brazil in the 1998 final represented the perfect end to Jacquet's coaching career, as he immediately resigned before taking up a position as technical director to the national team.
Prior to taking charge of France, Jacquet won three Ligue 1 titles with Bordeaux.
Luiz Felipe Scolari (2002 - Brazil)
Brazil's current coach knows exactly what is required to claim World Cup glory, having overseen their triumphant campaign in Japan and South Korea 12 years ago.
On that occasion, Scolari's omission of the popular Romario was justified as Brazil went all the way, beating Germany 2-0 in the final.
Scolari went on to lead Portugal to the final of the 2004 European Championship and also coached Chelsea, Uzbek outfit Bunyodkor and Palmeiras before being re-appointed as Brazil boss in 2012.
However, a spectacular 7-1 semi-final defeat at the hands of Germany prevented Scolari from following in the footsteps of former Italy boss Pozzo by becoming only the second man to lead a country to two World Cup successes.
Marcello Lippi (2006 - Italy)
Widely regarded as one of the world's leading coaches, Lippi enjoyed significant success at club level - winning five Serie A titles and the 1996 UEFA Champions League with Juventus - before being handed the Italy reins in 2004.
He enjoyed mixed fortunes at two World Cups with the Azzurri, masterminding a victorious campaign in 2006 during his first stint in charge, but then failing to guide Italy out of the group in South Africa four years later.
Following a break from the game, Lippi took charge of Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande in 2012 and lifted the AFC Champions League the following year.
Vicente del Bosque (2010 - Spain)
Del Bosque has faced criticism for Spain's poor performances at this World Cup, but will forever hold the distinction of having ended Spain's wait for a World Cup win.
After succeeding Luis Aragones in 2008 following Spain's European Championship success, Del Bosque was able to continue the side's winning habit with victory at the World Cup in South Africa.
Another European title came the way of Del Bosque and Spain in 2012, but defeats to the Netherlands and Chile in Brazil have led many to suggest the end of an era has been reached.
Del Bosque was no stranger to success before coaching his country; after an illustrious playing career, he won the UEFA Champions League twice as coach of Real Madrid, together with two Spanish titles.
