From Wikipedia:

Among his memorable moments is a goal he scored in the 1938 tournament
against Brazil in the semi-final. Italy was awarded a controversial
penalty and as Meazza stepped up to take it, his pants fell down.
Meazza, without letting this stress him, grabbed his pants and shot
past the confused Brazilian keeper Walter, sending Italy through to
the final.

Does anyone have any further details?
