I don't follow football and I only knew four for definite but I got 19/19 as I knew only 8 countries have ever won the world cup, England only once and Uruguay only twice, so it was pretty easy to guess the rest!

I don't understand - you're saying instead of two countries, it was always one country of Germany and a part of it that was separated which is now annexed back to the original country? You're saying it is similar to when the Confederacy separated from the Union in the US, but It doesn't seem to be the same thing since we had always been called the USA and outside powers hadn't divided us - states that left voluntarily came back to the original country. According to Wikipedia, after the smoke cleared from WWII two German states emerged - the FRG and the GDR. The FRG was commonly called West Germany, and the GDR was commonly called East Germany. There was no FRG before 1949. It was one part of a divided country, so how can one say that FRG was the real country of Germany and the other was not? Do you not accept the 1949 division forced on you by others? Perhaps you see it as a separation and reconciliation rather than divorce and remarriage? Again, I'm an outsider trying to understand.

Soccer's not my thing, but I do love the World Cup. I ended up guessing 100% but I really only knew about 5 for sure. The 1966 WC in England I remember because it was 900 years after the Battle of Hastings...weird...but that's how I remember it.

Spain's victory in 2010 broke the (almost) infallible rule: "The World Cup is always won by Brazil, Italy, Argentina, Germany or the host." Only spoilt by Uruguay in 1950 (which was before Argentina got as good as they did).

in the middle there is also some symmetry around the italy 1982 win. going forward and backwards from there it is argentina 1986/1978, (west) germany 1990/1974, brazil 1994/1970, host 1998/1966, brazil 2002/1962

All you need to remember to get 100% is: - Most are Brazil, Germany or Italy - England and France won once each, both on home turf - Uruguay won the first World Cup - At some point Uruguay won another, Argentina won two and Spain won one (which should be reasonably fresh in people's memories). As long as you've got that down, there's plenty of time to sort it all out.

And let's remember what that English newspaper columnist supposedly wrote on the eve of the finals match between England and West Germany "If Germany beat us today at our national sport, we can always point out to them that we have recently beaten them twice at theirs.”

Interesting to see that European countries won nine world cups in Europe, and none in Latin America, while Latin American countries won six cups in Latin America, and only two in Europe. If you also consider that six countries won in their own country, playing hone seems like a huge advantage.

Wanted to brag a little bit after yesterday so here it is: In 2010 I picked Spain to win at the start of the tournament. In 2014 I chose Germany to win at the start of the tournament. One month ago I chose France to win the 2018 World Cup. I'm more psychic than that bloody octopus!

A nice general rule of thumb. Only one team from the eastern hemisphere has won in the western hemisphere. Germany 2014 in Brazil. Only one team from the western hemisphere has won in the eastern hemisphere. Brazil 1958 in Sweden and Brazil 2002 in Japan.

lol, yes that is true, but Pele is clean. He should have been the person on the given photo, apart from the fact he is argued to be one of the best players of all time.
