Anachronisms 

When Frank, Gino, and Pee-Wee walk in the street after leaving the bar, they are shown walking past an aluminum vertical sliding garage door. These were not in existence during this time period, rather they were wooden horizontal doors that opened outward.
(at around 3 mins) In the scene on the hotel roof, a modern electronic siren is heard in the background. Sirens in the 1950s were mechanical, and had a very different sound.

Factual errors 

When the team arrives in Brazil, the game against England is constantly referred to as the team's opening game. However, in the 1950 World Cup the United States' first game was against Spain on June 25th. The game against England was played on June 29th and was the second game for the Americans.
