The Top World Cup Teams

Throughout the history of international football, we have seen some exceptional football teams that have proved their mettle on and off the field. Some of the teams on this list have been the most decorated on the planet, and most names on this list would be unsurprising for the true football fans.

Read on as we take a look at the top World Cup teams of all time.


The Brazil national football team has been one of the most consistently well-performing national teams in the world. It is a fact respected by even the strongest rivals of the team, and the performance of the Brazilian team on the field remains true to this deduction.

Brazil is one of the only few teams that has not missed a single FIFA World Cup. It has played 109 matches in the FIFA World Cup and managed to win 73. The first-ever FIFA match to be broadcast in color, the 1970 FIFA World Cup saw unmatched athletic excellence on part of the Brazil team. The iconic 70s squad is still seen by experts and fans as the best World Cup team ever.


Germany has been one of the most successful teams in the world when it comes to FIFA. The team has won the World Cup four times, in 1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014. Who can forget the memorable 1974 FIFA World Cup, where captain Franz Beckenbauer steered the team to their second FIFA World Cup victory. Most recently, the German national team won the 2014 FIFA World Cup by defeating Argentina 1-0.


Another renowned name football, Italy has consistently delivered excellent performance in the FIFA World Cup tournaments. Like Germany, Italy also has a record of four historic World Cup wins in 1934, 1938, 1982, and 2006. The four FIFA win record is only rivaled by the five wins of Brazil. Paolo Rossi scored the iconic first goal in the 1982 World Cup that led to West Germany’s defeat and Italy’s third-ever World Cup Win.


No conversation about the best world cup teams would be complete without France. The team has excelled at producing iconic sportsmen like Zinedine Zidane, who have forever changed the football landscape with their passion and love for football. In the 1998 FIFA World Cup, Zinedine Zidane scored two goals for the team, handing Brazil one of their worst World Cup defeats of all time.


Spain has the honor of being the breeding ground for immeasurable football talent. The various football clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and many more are a testament to their excellence in this sport. When we take a closer look at the World Cup record of Spain, things are no different. The Spanish national football team not only won the UEFA European Championship in 2008 and 2012 but also managed to capture the 2010 FIFA World Cup Trophy. 

The Spanish football squad between 2008 and 2012 is considered by many fans and experts to be the best in football history.
