╚>History of the World Cup<╝

The need for a International football event for the top football nations of the world was due largely to the Olympics' restrictions against professional athletes. In 1930, The Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) held soccer's first World Cup tournament in Montevideo, Uruguay (see more on Uruguay 1930).
After another two events in 1934 (Italy) and 1938 (Fraqnce), there was a 12 year break due to the World War, before recommencing in 1950 in Brazil. The World Cup has been held every four years since then. Brazil is the only country to have competed in every World Cup finals series, and are also the most successful country with five victories.
