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!

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.

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.

Yes! The biter: Suarez; the headbutter: Zidane; the tax avoider: Choose from Messi / Ronaldo; the faller: Neymar; the extortioner: Benzema; the karate kid: Cantona. I agree these people should be considered as role models!

However, Maradona is arguably the most infamous soccer player of all time.

The quiz creator could also put the all-time leading goalscorer as the picture (Miroslav Klose).

huh... actually managed to get them all with almost 3 minutes left with barely knowing any of the answers.

Started with the ones I knew... 2022, 1966, 1930.

Then went through and guessed host countries for all except the ones I knew had never won a World Cup.

Then went one-by-one guessing Brazil for everything. Then Germany for everything left. Then Italy, Argentina, France, Spain... then only had one left. Guessed Uruguay since I knew they used to be good in South America. That was it.
