Look, you can *believe* that the Womens' World Cup should be equal with the Mens'. You should. But in terms of international viewership, media attention, star players, historical importance and knowledge, and national recognition and acknowledgment, the Mens' WC unfortunately heavily outclasses the Womens'. I'm all for the MLS growing bigger and entering the Big Four, but right now, despite it being a perfectly good league, it doesn't have enough recognition.

@schnuederlue the order isn't incorrect. The teams aren't ranked anything to do with number of trophies, if that was the case then Uruguay would be above England and Spain. It's just ranked by the overall number of games they have won or drawn in the competition - 3 points given per every win and 1 point per draw. Netherlands have finished runners up 3 times, and reached the last 4 a further two occasions, so there's a lot of games won there despite never lifting the cup.

Well. Germany is almost first, now that's kind of awkward.But I mean, we always had a great team...Almost every single world cup. I guess most nations go through a phase where they're suddenly not that good anymore. We should drop some old players like Müller, Özil or Khedira and form a new generation. Tobias Werner, Leon Goretzka or Julian Brand were all good this world cup. Especially Werner seems to be a talent. Maybe 2022 or 2026 we'll be back in business.

I have actually been to the "Casque de diamant" (the diamond helmet), which is the "French Superbowl". Tickets are free, and you don't need to pre-book them. That year it was played at one of the smaller stadiums in Paris, and still, only one small section of the stands were open (opposite of TV cameras - apparently, you could watch it on France's numer 12 or 13 sports channel), and even then, they were half-empty. At half-time, some 15-year old cheerleaders came to throw a few handful of Haribo's into the stands. The game ended 10-0, with like five completed passes total, and a victory for the Thonon-les-Bains Black Panthers against the La Courneuve Flash (yes - this is even more hilarious when you know that Thonon-les-Bains is a thermal baths resort on lake Geneva, aka. the whitest place on Earth). So, to answer your question: clearly almost nobody cares about American football in France!

Also remain the most dominant squad in the world in soccer/football in history, and would be at or near the top of this quiz, if you don't assume that half the population of Earth doesn't count due to their gender.

I'm all for taking women's sports seriously in their own right. Absolutely. But no, they shouldn't be held equally with men's sports in all-time achievements lists like you seem to be suggesting. I mean, the USWNT lost to a boys' junior high team (just an MLS farm club too, not a national level U-15 team). It's very different levels of competition. You don't list college football national championships next to Super Bowls in the same category. And if you wanted to list women's world cup tables, that would rightfully be its own separate quiz.

Also, why are you only going to bat for women's teams? What about all the U-17/U-15? Shouldn't their world cups count too? People who are under the age of 17 don't count as humans, is that what you're saying? ;)
