I decided to hide the host column for the World Cup since it gives too much away. Added England as a top 3 finisher (for the first time) for the 2015 World Cup. Also consolidated all of the countries into a single point each, so now there are only 9 answers. Will make the final update tonight.

I don't understand the 'world cup champions' part, is this female soccer or what?

The men's soccer quizzes never specify that they are only counting men, so I was following the trend. I don't see why men should be considered the default sex.

But the FIFA World Cup Champions quiz doesn't specify that at all. Meanwhile, the instructions here ask for every winner in World Cup and Olympic football history, a gender-free instruction, so all the men's tournaments are missing!

What do you mean? I said that the quizzes about men's soccer never specify that they are about only men's soccer, to the exclusion of women's soccer (which is also FIFA and also World Cup). Though since I made this remark, I've noticed one or two quizzes were updated with caveats to indicate that it was about men's soccer, most of them are still, just like the quiz you linked to, assuming that male is the default gender. It says "FIFA World Cup Champions." That title SHOULD include women. But it doesn't. It's only about men.

Including the word "all" is irrelevant. I just put it on here to drive home my point, which it seems you missed.

But it is a give-away, with the years. You never see men's in 2015!

Why didn't you just put both genders in?

To make a point. If this was only men to the exclusion of women, would you have felt any need to comment on it? Or just accepted that as "normal?"

great response. in any case the FIFA dates give it away.

Yes, and the host countries as well. Though of course with the Olympics it's all the same.

I saw the final match between the US and Japan where Japan won with free kicks at the end. Good match, as far as I could tell.

Japan and USA in the final again this year. England finally got a 3rd place finish. I'm sure the fact that they didn't appear on this quiz at all before probably confused many people taking the quiz. Kudos to them. I'll update this tomorrow.

Found this very confusing, as it only relates to Women's Football tournaments. Reading the comments I can see that maybe this was meant to make some point by the author about sexism in football. As a women, living in the UK where football is predominately a male sport, it is great to see the Women's game getting the recognition finally. However for the purposes of a time restricted quiz, perhaps a specific instruction as to what the topic relates to would have been better.

I think 4 minutes for 9 answers is extremely generous, even given the confusion quiz takers might experience, which was by design and intentional.

Great quiz. 8/9, though a decent amount of that, I confess was guess work.

WOW. Huge upset this year at the Rio Olympic games! First time in history that the American team did not finish in the top 3 in either a World Cup or Olympic event. And Brazil's team didn't manage a top 3 finish, either, in spite of being heavily favored to do so and having the home turf advantage. The top 3 finishers all were on the quiz previously so there's no change in the stats.

I'm a bit surprised to see that 1996 was the first year it featured in the Olympics. Also disappointed in myself for not realising that the Scandinavian countries would be right up there.

They've had men's football at the Olympic games since 1900, 30 years before the first Men's World Cup was held. Women football players didn't start to get any recognition until much more recently, however.

Much like soccer, the arguments here will go on endlessly and wind up 0-0 in the final score.

Yes as they've never had a top 3 finish at a World Cup or Olympics. The host countries weren't intended to be part of the answers.
