1930 – FIFA World Cup Winner Team – Uruguay
In 1930, Uruguay became the first country to win the FIFA World Cup. Held in their home country, Uruguay defeated Argentina 4-2 in the final match. Uruguay went on to win the next two World Cups in 1934 and 1938.
1934 – Italy
In 1934, the FIFA World Cup was held in Italy. The Italian team, led by the legendary player and manager Vittorio Pozzo, won the tournament. This was the first time that a European team had won the World Cup.
The FIFA World Cup 1934 was the second edition of the FIFA World Cup, the world championship for men’s national association football teams. It took place in Italy from 27 May to 10 June 1934.
1938 – Italy
In 1938, the FIFA World Cup was held in France. The Italian team, led by renowned coach Vittorio Pozzo, won their second consecutive title, defeating Hungary 4-2 in the final. This remains the only time that a team has won back-to-back World Cups.
The 1938 tournament saw the introduction of a new format, with the first round divided into four groups of three teams each. Italy topped their group with wins over Norway (3-2) and Brazil (2-1), before dispatch in.
1950 – FIFA World Cup Winner Team- Uruguay
The 1950 FIFA World Cup, held in Brazil, was the fourth edition of the FIFA World Cup. Uruguay defeated Brazil 2–1 in the final match to win their second straight title and become the first nation to successfully defend their World Cup crown. It was also the first time that a team from outside Europe won the tournament. The 1950 World Cup is remembered as one of the most unexpected and shocking upsets in the history of the sport. Uruguay was not given much chance to win against a Brazilian side that had gone undefeated in almost 40 games leading up to the tournament. But in a stunning upset, Uruguay emerged victorious, thanks largely to their star striker Alcides Ghiggia, who scored both goals in the final.
1954 – West Germany
West Germany’s 1954 World Cup victory was a watershed moment for the country. It came just nine years after the end of World War II and helped to heal the wounds of a divided nation. It also cemented the country’s place as a footballing powerhouse, as they would go on to win three more World Cups in the next four decades.
That historic victory came against Hungary in the final, with West Germany coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2. That game is often referred to as “The Miracle of Bern”, and it is widely considered to be one of the greatest World Cup games of all time.
West Germany’s star player in that tournament was striker Fritz Walter, who scored two goals in the final. He would go on to become one of his country’s all-time greats, scoring 38 goals in 61 appearances for West Germany.
1958 – Brazil
Brazil won its first World Cup in 1958, hosted in Sweden. It was the first time that a South American team had won the tournament, which was also the first time that Brazil had competed in the event. They defeated host nation Sweden 5–2 in the final for their maiden title.
1962 – Brazil
The 1962 FIFA World Cup was the seventh edition of the World Cup and was held in Chile from 30 May to 17 June. Brazil won the tournament for the second time, defeating Czechoslovakia 3–1 in the final to win their first-ever title outside of South America. This was also the first time that a team from Asia had made it to the final.
Brazil was led by 20-year-old Pelé, who scored two goals in the final, and was managed by Aymoré Moreira. They became the first – and so far only – team to win the World Cup on home soil, as well as being the youngest team to ever win the tournament.
Czechoslovakia was making their second appearance in a World Cup final (having lost 2–1 to West Germany in 1934) and was looking to become the first eastern European nation to win the tournament. They were led by Antonín Panenka, who scored their only goal in the final with a famous chipped penalty in extra time.
The 1962 World Cup is widely considered one of the greatest ever tournaments, with many citing Pelé’s performances as a major reason why.
1966 – England
In 1966, England won their first and only FIFA World Cup. They beat West Germany 4-2 in the final at Wembley Stadium. England’s captain, Bobby Moore, was named as the tournament’s best player. Geoff Hurst scored a hat-trick in the final, becoming the only player to do so in a World Cup final.
1970 – Brazil
The 1970 FIFA World Cup was the ninth edition of the FIFA World Cup, and it was held in Mexico from 31 May to 21 June. The Brazilian national football team won the tournament for the third time, defeating Italy 4–1 in the final, with Pelé scoring two goals. This win marked the beginning of Brazil’s period of dominance in international football, which continued until the early 1980s.
1974 FIFA World Cup Winners Team – Germany
The 1974 FIFA World Cup was the 10th edition of the FIFA World Cup. It was held in West Germany from 13 June to 7 July. The tournament marked a turning point in German football history.
It was the first time that the German team had won the World Cup and it signaled a change in power within European football, with West Germany becoming a major force on the continent. The victory also helped to heal the wounds of the Second World War, with many Germans seeing the win as a vindication for their country.
The German team was not expected to win the tournament but they proved their doubters wrong, defeating favourites such as Brazil and Holland on their way to lifting the trophy. The final was played against the Netherlands, with West Germany winning 2-1 after extra time.
The 1974 FIFA World Cup-winning team will always be remembered as one of the greatest teams in history. They were a symbol of hope for a nation still recovering from war, and their victory showed that anything is possible if you believe in yourself. Thank you, Germany!
1978 FIFA World Cup Winners Team – Argentina
In 1978, the Argentine national team won the FIFA world cup held in Argentina. The team, led by captain Daniel Passarella and coached by César Luis Menotti, defeated the Netherlands 3-1 in the final. Other notable members of the team included Mario Kempes, Osvaldo Ardiles, and Jorge Valdano.
This was Argentina’s first World Cup victory, and it came on home soil. The win was especially sweet for the Argentine people, who had been through a lot in the years leading up to the tournament. Just four years earlier, in 1974, Argentina had been forced to play a playoff against Chile to even qualify for the World Cup. And then, in 1976, a military coup ousted democratically-elected president Isabel Perón from power.
The 1978 World Cup win was a much-needed boost of morale for Argentina. It proved that despite all the turmoil of recent years, the country could still come together and achieve great things.

The holders of Argentina were eliminated in the second group stage. Algeria, Chile, Cameroon, and New Zealand made their first appearances in the finals.
In the first round of Group 3, Poland and Belgium both qualified with five points each after defeating Chile (3–0) and El Salvador (2–1), respectively, while drawing with each other (1–1). Algeria also progressed through to the second round as one of the best third-placed teams with three points, despite not winning a game, because all three of their opponents lost their matches. In Group 4, Italy qualified for the second round as winners with seven points after beating Cameroon (4–0), Peru (4–3), and Poland (2–0), while losing only to Poland (0–1). West Germany also qualified for the second round as runners-up with six points after beating Kuwait (4–1) and Czechoslovakia (3–2), while drawing 1–1 against Denmark; they would go on to beat France 2-1 in an epic semi-final clash.
In Group 1, Brazil qualified for the second round as winners with nine points after defeating

Argentina became the fifth country to win a World Cup, and the first to win one outside Europe or South America.
This was Argentina’s second World Cup triumph, following their victory in 1978. They became the first team to retain their title since Brazil in 1962, and only the third team to do so overall (joining Brazil and Italy). It was also the first time that a team from outside Europe or South America had won a World Cup.
Argentina’s success began with a 3–1 victory over Italy in their opening game at Toluca’s Estadio Nou Campo, thanks to two goals from Diego Maradona. They then beat Bulgaria 2–0 at Puebla’s Estadio Cuauhtémoc and gained revenge for their previous loss to France with a 2–0 win at Monterrey’s Estadio Tecnológico.

1994 FIFA World Cup Winners Team- Brazil
The 1994 FIFA World Cup was the 15th FIFA World Cup, held in nine cities across the United States from 17 June to 17 July 1994. The United States was selected as the host by FIFA on 8 July 1988. Despite the host nation’s lack of soccer tradition, the tournament was the most financially successful in World Cup history; it boosted soccer’s popularity in the United States and returned a profit of over $1 billion.
Brazil won the tournament for a record fourth time, beating Italy 3–2 in a penalty shootout after the game ended 0–0 after extra time, making them also the first team to win four World Cups. This was Brazil’s first appearance in a final since 1970, and their first win outside Europe or South America. It ensured that Brazil would become only the second team (after Italy) to appear in three consecutive World Cups (1998, 2002, and 2006), and is currently their joint-record sixth title overall with France. Along with Germany’s victory in 1990, this marked only the second occasion that two former world champions met in a final (the other instance being England against West Germany in 1966).
In total there were 52 matches played throughout the tournament. Toluca hosted two group stage matches as well as a round of 16 matches; Puebla hosted three group stage matches and one quarter-final match; Guadalajara hosted one group stage match and one semi-final match; Mexico City hosted six group stage matches, one round of 16
1998 FIFA World Cup Winners Team – France
The 1998 FIFA World Cup was the 16th FIFA World Cup, held in France from 10 June to 10 July 1998. The tournament was won by France, who beat Brazil 3–0 in the final. It was also the first time that the current trophy, the FIFA World Cup Trophy, was awarded. A total of 176 teams from all six populated continents participated in the qualification process for the tournament, which began in March 1996.
This was the first World Cup to be held in Africa, Asia, North America, or South America; as a result, it broke new ground for the sport. A record number of countries – 32 – qualified for the finals tournament. In total,199 nations were represented at one stage during qualifying. This figure increased to 204 when Senegal took part in their first World Cup after gaining independence from Mali on 20 August 1960.
The host country was chosen by FIFA’s Executive Committee at a meeting in Zurich on 4 June 1992. France was awarded the hosting duties on 2 July 1992, beating Morocco and Sweden comprehensively (12 votes to seven and seven respectively). This resulted in some controversial comments from Morocco’s Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein: “I think it is important that Europe shows confidence in Africa and gives us this chance.” These comments were seen as racist by many people at the time.
2002 FIFA World Cup Winners Team- Brazil
The 2002 FIFA World Cup was the 17th FIFA World Cup. It was held from 31 May to 30 June 2002 at sites in South Korea and Japan, with its last match hosted by Japan at the International Stadium in Yokohama.

Brazil’s Ronaldo was named as the player of the tournament while Kléber Giacomazzi of Italy won the Golden Boot as the tournament’s top scorer with five goals.
2006 FIFA World Cup Winners Team – Italy

France had taken the lead through a controversial Zinedine Zidane penalty kick in the seventh minute of extra time; Marco Materazzi subsequently leveled for Italy with a header in the 19th minute. The match became notable for Zidane’s headbutt of Materazzi – an act that saw him sent off – and Materazzi’s taunting response which caused Zidane to lose his temper. At 1–1 after 120 minutes, Italy won 5–3 on penalties thanks to goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon saving two shots from French striker David Trezeguet.
It was Italy’s first appearance in a major international final since their 1970 win over West Germany, and their first-ever European Championship final victory on home soil (not including 1968 when they hosted and won). They also became only the second team to win both a World
