Brazil has the most World Cup titles with five. They also have the most wins. However, Brazil has never won a home World Cup.
Unlike the other national teams, France has been the first team to win a World Cup in their own country. This was in 1998. It was France’s second World Cup victory.
Argentina, Brazil, and Germany are the only teams to win two titles within a decade. The only other team to win more than one title is Uruguay.
Several African nations have made it to the quarter-finals. Cameroon, Senegal, and Ghana made it to the quarter-finals in 1990, 2002, and 2010. Morocco did not make it to the final.
In the past, only European teams have had the chance to play in the World Cup final. Hungary, Netherlands, and Croatia played in the final but did not win.
Since the start of the tournament, more teams from North America and Asia have made it to the semifinals. However, only one team from Africa has ever been in the World Cup final.
In the 2022 FIFA World Cup, France will face Argentina in the championship match. That’s a good thing for Les Bleus. Argentinian Lionel Messi is the greatest player in the world.
France’s Didier Deschamps, the manager, is a former World Cup winner. His players included Zinedine Zidane, Patrick Viera, and Theirry Henry. He has also been a coach and captain for France, winning the World Cup in 1998.
