Winners and Finalists of FIFA World Cup

by on June 11, 2010

Brazil football

FIFA World Cup has been dominated by teams like Brazil and Italy as these teams have made their ways to finals along with winning the maximum number of FIFA championships. Almost 75 nations play football and each of them have appeared in the FIFA World Cup at least once. Out of 75, only 11 teams made their way to the final match of the World Cup, while only 7 won the championship title. Lets have a quick tour of the FIFA World Cup winners and finalists:


Brazil has been the most successful team by winning five titles of World Cup in the years 1958, 1970, 1962, 1994 and 2002. It is the only team which has appeared in all the World Cup tournaments. Brazil has made its way to the finals two times. Along with Italy, Brazil is the only nation to win consecutive titles.


Italy is second in winning the football World Cup for four times in the years 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006. Like Brazil, Italy is also the nation to win consecutive titles. Italy was a finalist twice in the World Cup.


Germany, with their consistent performance, won three championship titles in the years 1954, 1974 and 1990. They were finalists in the year 1966, 1982, 1986 and 2002.


Argentina won the championship title in 1978 and 1968. They were the finalists in the years 1930 and 1990.


Uruguay won the championship title in the years 1930 and 1950.


France won the World Cup in 1998 and made its way to the final of 2006 as well.


England won the FIFA World Cup title in 1966.

In the FIFA World Cup 2010, Italy is defending the championship. Spain has won the 2010 Football World Cup.Β

    Will make it my Homepage for World Cup season. Very beautiful site layout & very up- to-date precise historical info about playing teams. Lot of talent and effort has been put to make it so attractive. Keep posting the live results also.

  3. I am not a big follower of football though,yet its very interesting to know that there is certain pattern of winning between Europe & American teams i.e. Brazil, Italy etc. Looks like there is much than fair play in FIFA πŸ™‚

    An interesting round up of the Fifa World Cup so far – the greatest event on the Planet. A mere peak at the countries that have won the championship reveals that European countries have dominated the scene so far. Maybe it is so because of the bigger quota they enjoy. The only other continent to appear on this list is Latin America. Superstars from all over the Globe play in the European leagues including English Permier League, Italian Serie A, German Bundesliga, Spanish and Dutch leagues. Football has been the prime source of entertainment in Europe, and for the World overall. Latin America is not far behind by being the biggest exporters of football talent. In addition to above champions, we can expect great play by Portugal, Spain, Netherland, and many more. Much is expected from the best football playing nations this year as Football fans gather once again to cheer the teams they love. Personally, I won’t favor one single team from the bunch. I would rather watch all superstars from all the teams around the Globe. Lets not bet on one team, lets watch the sport, and the sportsmen.

    Definitely! Much is expected from Spain and somehow todays match between Australia and Germany alarmed everyone that Germans have the potential to do so.Lets see who makes it to the top πŸ™‚

    Happy reading!

    As a keen football supporter for over a decade i have understood one thing for sure, the 8 teams that make it to the quarterfinals all have the equal potential to lift the trophy. And even though majority of the ppl would be rooting for italians and brazilians as a tradition, i think that one of the two finalists would be spain and the other would be either england or argentina. The players playing in those sides have had excellent european seasons and trust me nothing compares to the uefa champions league. if a person can perform over there, world cup is just peanuts for him. Italians and brazilians dont have a strong side like they previously did and should not get past the qf stage i believe.

  9. Waqar says:

    Yes its been like everyone is getting crazy in Football fever. This time it’s gonna be a surprise as well as an upset win by Argentina.

    So far, My vote will go with Spain and argentina for finals….
    Anyways enjoy everyone!!! Wait n See…

    I think this year Germany and Argentina will be a strong team and both got the potential so I will be closely following these team …. but field is wide open and it is too early to predict who will reach the finals.

    Germany totally devastated Australia but untill they will play against some good team it will be hard to tell how they gona perform.

    One thing for sure it will be an interesting worldcup to watch …. great compilation of team previous record πŸ™‚

  11. Hmm.. Its too early to speculate on the this cup’s finalist, but I am supporting England for now.

  12. Ana says:

    I cant support England for what Green did the other day seriously

  13. minusten says:

    well i never thought i can get that much info ab football under one portal :).

  14. lxgamer says:

    Football is pretty boring. I am being honest. So many draws or single sided games, I hope all the matches are so much boring that people get rid of this football sickness that’s all over them for no reason.

    Hi and thanks for writing this information, I don’t know about everyone else, but I could totally make use of it.

  30. Good stuff, Duvel. Agree on your analysis. My take is that in trying to provide a predictable and stable platform, Dunga became a victim of the foundation on which the team was build on. He got his counter attacks and set pieces all worked out but when the unpredictable happened-an own goal by melo, the entire team collapsed because they didnt rehearse for that. Plus everyone else playing Brazil knew their roster and where to attack the weak link. Dunga’s refusal to inject new players which would add motivation and an element of surprise to his setup. I have mentioned before abt the LW position and I still cant understand why players who were playing regular leftback for the Spainish champs and runner up Maxwell and Marcelo couldnt get a look in. I admire alves alot for his work rate and motivation but blending him with Maicon was a case of too many cooks spoiling the broth. Of course the unfortunate thing was that the 2 midfielders who could add some creativity could not play – ramires and elano. Well, lets wait another 4 years….Germany is meanwhile teaching everyone else what some risk taking on young blood coupled with detailed planning can do. Incredible how they ran circles round Argentinian defense.
