World Cup: a brief history
The competition was created by Frenchman Jules Rimet
in 1928, after having taken control of the most important
institution in world football: FIFA (Federation
International Football Association). Since 1930, when it
first took place in Uruguay, the tournament happens
every four years.
The first World Cup had the participation of only 13
teams that were invited by FIFA without preliminary
match, as it happens at present. The Brazil reached the

possession of Jules Rimet trophy. After 1970, Brazil stayed
24 years without a title. The victory recurred in 1994

Our national team beat Italy in an exciting penalty
match. Four years later, Brazil reaches the final again, but
lost the title to the host country: France. Today, the
country is proud to be a five-time winner, the most
successful World Cup team.
