Decades Later, Grandfather Will Get to Attend World Cup Final

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a Brazilian grandfather is rewarded for saving his 1950 World Cup final ticket. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Joedir Belmont had a ticket to attend the final game of the 1950 World Cup between Brazil and Uruguay.

But he didn't go because he had to stay home with his sick mother.

He kept the ticket, and when he recently tried to donate it to FIFA for its new museum, he got a special surprise.

The organization exchanged his original voucher for a new one to this year's game.

Even better?

His two sons get to go with him too.
