Fairly easy if you know the recent ones and the few 20th century exceptions where it wasn't held in a major football nations (and most of those are quite famous like The Miracle in Berne or the first cup being in Uruguay with few Euro team participating so they won it themselves etc.), I got them all with 2.12 left. It's probably only hard if you are from a non-soccer playing country like the US.

By then? It's already invading its neighbours, murdering opposition leaders, has heavy sanctions on it, has been kicked out of the G8, is engaging in state-backed mass-drug cheating in sports, and propping up brutal dictatorships abroad. At what point does it formally become a 'rogue state'?

Hm.. never Hungary? They've won more Olympic medals in football than any other country except the United States. But I guess they've never actually won a World Cup. Best result was runners-up. They did win the European Championship in '64, though. Canada is hosting this year but, thanks for at least putting the caveat that this only counts men.

Yes, Hungary. Why is that funny? They were maybe the best national football team in Europe during the 1950s. Known as the Golden Team or Marvelous Magyars. They had limited success at the World Cup like I mentioned but have won more Olympic gold medals than Brazil, Germany, Italy, Spain, Uruguay or Argentina; and more medals overall than Great Britain. I'm surprised more people don't know about this. I don't even care about football and I know.

In fact it was considered quite an upset when they did NOT win the 1954 World Cup. The final, in which West Germany beat Hungary 3-2 after having been 2-0 behind, is known as 'the Miracle of Berne'

That pre 1956 Hungarian side were from another planet. Puskas, Bozsik, Kocsis etc beat England 7 - 1 which then changed the way England approached the game. Puskas is still held in high regard. Wonderful player.

I'm wondering if UK should be accepted or not for England. You don't accept it on other quizzes about football. Seems odd that you'd be more leniant here. Unless some games were held outside of England in 1966? (Scotland? Wales?) Anyway, just a thought...
+2
level 52
Jun 14, 2018
IMO it should not be accepted, as it says "Countries as defined by FIFA, not necessarily sovereign nations". UK is not a FIFA country, as far as I know
+1
level 56
Jun 21, 2018
Football/soccer is one of those areas where we in the UK have to be different (awkward!). The UK does not have one single team, but has teams (and different governing bodies) representing England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, each of which is recognized by FIFA as a separate entity. 1966 was held solely in England by the English football authorities, the other parts of the UK were not involved. So this is one of those quizzes where the UK should not be accepted.

I believe the chances are unfortunately slim to none. If FIFA stripped Qatar of the hosting rights, they would likely face a billion dollar lawsuit, which they obviously don't want to.

Why is Countries as defined by FIFA, not necessarily sovereign nations included in the instructions? I don't think there's any debate that all these answers are countries.
