6 Prolific World Cup Winners and Their Stories

world cup winners

Throughout history, there have been many world cup winners. These include France, Brazil, Italy and West Germany. Whether you like or dislike these countries, you should be proud of the men and women who have won the world cup.


Argentines are looking for a second World Cup title in a row after they won Copa America last year. They also have a lot of experience in this competition and will be hoping to take their skills to Qatar next year. They have already qualified for the Round of 16 and are likely to face France or Denmark in the quarter-finals.

They have also won the FIFA World Cup in 1978. They played in Russia and finished second in their group. They have been beaten by France and Germany in the past.

The Argentines have a history of being scuppered in the quarter-finals. They have failed to make the final eight in five World Cups. They have also not advanced beyond the round of 16 since Italia ’90.

The team has also had a plethora of different managers in the past. Jorge Sampaoli was the last manager to take Argentina to the final. In a dismal campaign, Argentina won only one match.

Lionel Messi is the third-highest goalscorer in men’s international history. He has also had a great start to the 2022/23 season at club level. He has already equaled his tally from his debut season in France. He has also scored 26 goals in 18 matches.

Argentina is the third South American team to win a World Cup. The team has not lost since a 2-0 defeat to Brazil at the Copa America last year. They will be hoping to take their Copa America win to the next level and challenge Europe’s 16-year World Cup stranglehold.


Defending champions Brazil have been drawn into Group G with Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon. They have been given a tough assignment, but they are considered the best team in South America and the continent as a whole. They have a chance to win their sixth World Cup in 2022.

The five-time World Cup winners will play their first group game against Serbia on November 24th. They will then have a make-up match against Argentina. Brazil are expected to win their group, with a chance to move up the rankings to the top spot.

Brazil’s World Cup squad is full of elite players. They feature superstar Neymar, who was the world’s most expensive player. He is expected to lead the team to glory in the 2022 tournament.

Neymar is a winger who plays with great pace and a strong vision. He is also a dangerous attacking option. He has played for Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. He is considered a household name in Brazil. He also has a great dribbling ability.

Brazil were the host nation for the 2014 World Cup. They finished fourth in the tournament. They have not won a World Cup since 2002. They have also not been to the final since 1998.

Tite has built a strong structure for Brazil. He has an abundance of young players. He has had great success in the qualification phase. He finished first in the CONMEBOL qualification. He has also managed Brazil to a 17-game unbeaten run.


Despite a shaky start in their World Cup campaign, Spain managed to secure the top spot in Group E. The La Roja will face their arch rivals Germany in Al Khor on November 27. This should be the Spanish version of a friendly and if the team can beat Germany, they could well be in the knockout phase of the tournament.

Despite their woes, Spain have a chance to win the World Cup if they manage to beat Germany. This would be the first time since 1974 that Spain has made it past the quarter-finals.

The World Cup is a great opportunity to boost the nation’s profile. Not only does it increase national pride, but it also means more money for the country.

However, there are no guarantees that Spain will win the tournament. They will have to defeat the 13 best World Cup teams in order to claim their first title in the tournament.

They may also have to face Brazil, which is another team to be wary of. After all, Spain has only won the group once in the last ten years.

Aside from that, they haven’t been able to beat France. And although they’ve been competitive, they’ve yet to really find their form. They’ve also suffered a recession and an influx of immigrants in recent years.

In addition to their success in the World Cup, Spain won two European Championships in 2008 and 2012. They’ve had more than a few impressive moments in recent years. However, they don’t have the quality of players to win the World Cup.


During Italy’s history, the country has won four World Cups and finished runner up on two occasions. The team has reached the World Cup semi-finals eight times, while the final has been played on seven occasions.

The Azzurri have appeared in 18 of the 21 World Cups. However, the team has failed to qualify for the European Championships in 1972 and 1976. Luckily, the future was looking bright with the arrival of a talented new generation of Italian players.

Italy were drawn in Group C for the World Cup qualification campaign in 2022. They were joined by North Macedonia, Portugal, and Turkey. Their squad included Marcello Lippi, who guided Italy to the 2006 World Cup victory.

The Azzurri also won the Euro 2020 in 2021. The squad featured many players who were considered to be in their prime years, including Mario Balotelli, Gianluigi Buffon, and Leonardo Bonucci. The team also featured Giuseppe Meazza, known as “Il Genio” in the Italian press, who voted as one of the tournament’s best players.

Italy were the joint-highest scoring team during the World Cup, scoring 4.67 goals per game. Their only defeat came to eventual World Cup champions Argentina. However, the team had a great run during the tournament, going on a 37-game unbeaten streak.

The team’s most memorable match was against West Germany. Five of the seven goals scored came in extra time, and the game became a classic in World Cup history.


Despite being a major football powerhouse, France has not won the World Cup since 1966. This is despite winning the tournament on home soil in 1990. This year’s tournament will see France compete in a new country, Qatar, and it has been rumored that they have a strong chance of retaining the trophy.

The World Cup has been won by only two teams in the past 56 years. Italy beat Brazil in 2006, and Brazil won the tournament in 1966. The men’s team from France last retained the trophy in 1962.

The Golden Ball is awarded to the best player in the competition. Several countries were named, including Germany and England. However, the award’s true meaning has been debated.

The video assistant referee (VAR) system is used in the World Cup, and France were awarded the first VAR-assisted score. France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final.

Besides the Golden Ball, there are other awards to be awarded. The aforementioned aforementioned is a good example.

France’s star players include Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, and Paul Pogba. However, France have had a mixed tournament. They are yet to win a match in the group stages, but they have managed to secure one point ahead of the next team. They have also had to deal with an injury crisis, which has left some key players off the pitch.

The video assistant referee has also been used to help with the decision making process. This is especially relevant in the case of France’s upcoming game against Denmark.

West Germany

Among the many major trophies earned by West Germany were the 1954 World Cup in Switzerland, the 1974 FIFA World Cup and the 1990 World Cup in Italy. However, West Germany never finished runners-up at the World Cup.

The World Cup was held in Germany in 1974, but the country was reunified under a new flag. West Germany, along with East Germany, merged to form the Federal Republic of Germany. In the interim, Germany had three national teams, one representing the Democratic Republic of Germany, one representing the Federal Republic of Germany and one representing Saarland. In addition to the three national teams, there were four regional teams, such as Saarland.

West Germany won the 1974 World Cup – the first time the country had participated in a World Cup – but did not defend the title at the 1976 European Championship. The same team also lost a deciding match to Austria 1-2.

West Germany was also victorious at the 1990 World Cup, the first time the country had reached the final. In the final, West Germany outlasted Argentina. In the semi-finals, West Germany defeated Italy in a penalty shoot-out and then outdid the Italians in the final with a 1-0 win.

The 1990 World Cup was the last time West Germany won a major tournament. West Germany also won the European Championship in 1972. The country’s ‘Golden Team’ included Ferenc Puskas and Sandor Kocsis, who were the ‘Mighty Magyars’.
