World Cup Top 10: Which countries have participated most often?

Info by NewShower

Since 1930 the World Cup was staged 22 times already (last time 2022 in Qatar). Only in the years 1942 and 1946, the World Championships in Football/Soccer has paused because of the Second World War.

Only one team has succeeded in participating in any World Cup so far: Brazil. (And has become World Champion for the most times, too.)

The following table is showing, how often the other countries have taken part in the World Cup competitions. The last two columns are containing information about the years, the country has not participated and the years in which the appropriate country has won the match and has become world champion.

The * behind a year means that the country could not qualify to the World Cup in that year. Years without * mean, that the country has not participated in the qualification phase or that the team has not competed for the World Cup that year.
