Complete list of FIFA World Cup Winners and runners-up

The most popular soccer tournament of all time, the FIFA World Cup is held every four years where some of the best soccer nations from around the world come together to showcase their talent among all soccer lovers in the world. The league is the toughest competition in football as players from all countries play for their country with full aggression and skill. Every four years, even if only one country can lift the much-coveted World Cup, all the other countries will be equally unfair if we don't talk about their playing ability and tactics.

The final match of the World Cup is the end of the competition and the result will determine which country will be declared the world champion. If the score is tied after 90 minutes of normal play, an additional 30 minutes of play, called extra time, are added. If such a match is tied even after extra time, it will be decided in a penalty shootout. The team that wins the penalty shootout is declared the FIFA World Cup Winner.

FIFA World Cup Winners

79 countries have appeared at least once in the 21 FIFA World Cup tournaments held. Of these, 13 reached the final match and won eight. With five titles, Brazil is the most successful team at the World Cup and is also the only country to have participated in all World Cup finals tournaments. Italy and Germany have four titles. Current champions France along with former champions Uruguay and Argentina each have two titles, England and Spain one each. The team that wins the final will receive the FIFA World Cup trophy and their name will be engraved on the bottom of the trophy.

Most Successful Teams in FIFA World Cup History

While some teams can overcome all obstacles in the world cup tournament and show exceptional skills in the game, other teams may perform very well in other FIFA tournaments but fail to show their skills in the world cup games.

Some of the most successful teams in FIFA World Cup history are Brazil, Germany, Italy, and Argentina. Brazil lifted the World Cup trophy five times in -1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, and 2002 while Italy and Germany won the World Cup titles 4 times. While Germany won the World Cup finals in 1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014, Italy won the tournament finals in 1934, 1938, 1982, and 2006.
