Every four years, the top national teams from around the world vie for the title of FIFA World Cup, the most important championship in world football.

Initially, the quadrennial extravaganza was limited to men’s teams. In 1991, the FIFA World Cup for women was launched.
In 22 editions of the men’s FIFA World Cup, which was first held in 1930 under the name Jules Rimet Trophy, eight different champions have emerged.

The FIFA World Cup trophy has been won by Brazil, Germany, Italy, Argentina, France, Uruguay, England, and Spain.

The most FIFA World Cup victories are held by the men’s Brazil football team.

Brazil has the record for most World Cup victories with five: 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, and 2002. They are the only squad that has participated in each of the 21 editions.
Brazil, often known as “La Selecao,” has won the most World Cup matches (73), goals scored (229), and number of games played (109).

The great striker Pele came to the fore when Brazil won the championship for the first time in 1958. In that edition, he scored six goals, two of which came against Sweden in the championship game.

Pele went on to win three FIFA World Cups throughout his stellar career (1958, 1962, and 1970); he is still the only player to do it.

Germany and Italy, who each have four FIFA World Cup victories, are just behind Brazil in the standings.

Italy was the champion in 1934, 1938, 1982, and 2006, while Germany won it in 1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014.
Three eras can be distinguished from Germany’s World Cup run: pre-World War II Germany, West Germany, and the current reunified Germany. In the records, nonetheless, all three are regarded as a single nation.

In addition, the European behemoths have recorded a record 12 top three finishes, including four second-place results.

With 16 goals in four FIFA World Cups, former German striker Miroslav Klose holds the record for most goals scored at the tournament.

Italy, on the other hand, became the first side to win the World Cup back-to-back when they won it on their debut in 1934 and then successfully defended it in 1938.

Italy, one of the most successful teams, was unable to secure a spot in the FIFA World Cups for the years 2018 and 2022.
The other countries with multiple FIFA World Cup victories are Uruguay (2), Argentina (3), and France (2).

Uruguay won in 1930 and 1950, while Argentina won in 1978, 1986, and 2022. It was won by France in 1998 and 2018.

Three times—in 1974, 1978, and 2010—the Netherlands has advanced to the final, but they have not yet been listed among the World Cup winners.

In the men’s FIFA World Cup, only teams from Europe and South America have triumphed.
The United States of America is the most successful country in the women’s FIFA World Cup, having won four out of the eight editions and never placing worse than three.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup was won by the US women’s football team in 1991, 1999, 2015, and 2019. They have also scored the most goals at the international showcase (138).
