Who won the World Cup in his own Country?

Question by Hero12 | 2015-10-07 at 21:48

I am very interested in a list of countries that have so far made to win the Football World Cup in their own country.

Currently, I can only remember France in 1998. However, has it happened more often?

Indeed, it often happens that teams can use their home advantage to manage winning the World Cup in their own country.

Here is a complete list:

  • 1930 Uruguay
  • 1934 Italy
  • 1966 England
  • 1974 Germany
  • 1978 Argentina
  • 1998 France

With 21 World Championships so far, this even happens in about 30% of all cases.

More details can be found in the list of all previous World Cup Winners.
