Brazil's record in "THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP" can never now be equalled, been the only country five (5) times World Champions and also been the only country always to have reached the finals in every tournament held since the start of the competition in 1930, until the last championship in 2014. During this period of 20 series, Brazil won the World Cup in 1958 (unbeaten), 1962 (unbeaten), 1970 (unbeaten, winning all the six matches), 1994 (unbeaten) and 2002 (unbeaten, winning all the seven matches); were second in 1950 and 1998; third in 1938 and 1978 (unbeaten); fourth in 1974 and 2014. When Brazil won the Jules Rimet Cup outright in 1970, had a 100% record in both, qualifying and in the final stages. It was 12 matches in a row (6 in the qualifying and 6 in the finals). No other World Cup winner has had a 100% record in the qualifying and finals in all the history.

And with the incredible fact to be the only nation to have win "THE TRIPLE CROWN" two times away from home! More fantastic: Brazil did it outside the own continent (in the cases of "THE WORLD CUP" and "THE CONFEDERATIONS CUP", of course)! Resume: First Time: Brazil started "THE WORLD CUP 1998" as holders of "THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP" (WON "THE WORLD CUP 1994"), "THE INTERCONTINENTAL CUP" (WON "THE CONFEDERATIONS CUP 1997") and "THE CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP" (WON "THE SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP"-"COPA AMÉRICA 1997"). This fantastic combination of facts made Brazil to be the first country in the earth that, in the same time, was the holders of the three more importants competitions in the planet (WORLD, INTERCONTINENTAL and CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIPS). A situation unprecedented in the history of the football! This "TRIPLE CROWN" Brazil conquered been the only nation to win away from home (without to play home!). Also, Brazil was the only nation to win this "TRIPLE CROWN" unbeaten!; Second Time: Brazil also won "THE WORLD CUP 2002" (for the fifth time) and, as holders of "THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP" (WON "THE WORLD CUP 2002"), was champion of "THE INTERCONTINENTAL CUP 2005" (for the second time), when won "THE CONFEDERATIONS CUP 2005" and winning for the seventh time (in the total of eight (8) continental titles) "THE CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP 2004" (Champion in "THE SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP"-"COPA AMÉRICA 2004"). This fantastic combination of facts made Brazil to be the only nation in the earth that, two times in the same time, was the holders of the three more importants competitions in the planet (WORLD, INTERCONTINENTAL and CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIPS). Also, a situation unprecedented in the history of the football! This "DOUBLE TRIPLE CROWN" Brazil conquered, like is registred over, been the only nation to win away from home! (without to play home!);
  • Brazil started "THE WORLD CUP 2006" as holders of "THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP" (WON "THE WORLD CUP 2002"), also as holders of "THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP" (WON "THE CONFEDERATIONS CUP 2005") and "THE CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP" (WON "THE SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP"-"COPA AMÉRICA 2004"). This another fantastic combination of facts made BRAZIL to be the only country in the earth that was the holders of THE WORLD, THE INTERCONTINENTAL AND THE CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIPS TWO TIMES ALONG THE HISTORY, BEFORE THE START OF ONE SINGLE EDITION OF "THE WORLD CUP", the more important event of "THE KING OF ALL SPORTS"! Also a situation unprecedented in the history of the football! One time more, this championships Brazil conquered winning away from home (without to play home!);
  • Brazil is "TRIPLE CROWN" also in winning, in the same time, the three official WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS of FIFA: THE COMPETITION FOR THE PRINCIPAL TEAMS, THE U-20 AND THE U-17!!! Again one unprecedented situation, status that only BRAZIL can have, to be, simultaneously, WORLD CHAMPIONS IN THE THREE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS PROMOTE BY FIFA!;
  • In the club level, Brazilians clubs, and obviously Brazil as nation, are the only country that won three World Championships titles organized officially by FIFA, and more notable, all this fantastic demonstration of superiority, winning with three differents clubs, from two differents towns and states!!! Brazilians clubs are also unbeaten in all the World Championships games since those World Championships started by FIFA in the year 2000! The clubs from Brazil are unbeaten, even if VASCO DA GAMA, from Rio de Janeiro, finished second, just after CORINTHIANS, from São Paulo, in the year 2000, but losing the title of Champions only in the decision by penalties. That game finished officially 0x0, after the extra time (180 minutes)! "The World Club Championship", organized officially by FIFA, is, of course, the more important competition for clubs and more big tournament for clubs that can be winning in the club level, where all the continents are envolved. The old and extinct "Intercontinental Cup", that the Champions clubs from South America also did lead all the way in the confrontation with the Champions clubs from Europe until the end of the event (this was the same tournament that after was also renamed "Toyota Cup", and during the both titles the South American Clubs did lead until the end, winning also in the total number of titles of Champions in both and, of course, in the extinct history of the big event). As the "Intercontinental Cup" and Toyota Cup never was official as "World Championships" and obviouslly never did or counted in this level and, as the name of the competition called during the time existed, counted only in the level below the tournemants for national teams, as is the level of the competition for clubs, but as one form of tournemant like the "Intercontinental Cup" for national teams, of course, very under "The World Championship". In the inaugural "World Club Championship" for clubs, organized officially by FIFA, Brazilians clubs finished first and second in the "I WORLD CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP", promoted by FIFA, with Brazil represented by two teams, one continental champions and another as hosts. This great sucess of the competition, for the first time ever having the Champions teams from all the continents, was unique and stayed the more high one single club can win, as have been until now. In the year 2000, CORINTHIANS, from São Paulo, was WORLD CHAMPIONS and VASCO DA GAMA, from Rio de Janeiro, was VICE WORLD CHAMPIONS. Fantastic! In the "II World Club Championship", SÃO PAULO F.C., from the town with the same name, won the title in 2005. Fantastic and unique! In the "III World Club Championship", INTERNACIONAL, club from the town of Porto Alegre, in south BRAZIL, won the title in 2006 for the nation of Brazil and confirmed, ones more, the clubs from Brazil as outstand class, even if Brazil have been export the best players of the world, mostly for Europeans clubs, that the Brazilians clubs have to face and have been beating, even if in the other side, in this case beating Barcelona, had Ronaldinho Gaúcho, nominated by FIFA "THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD", in the last two years, 2004 and 2005, Deco (originally from Brazil), Edmílson and others Brazilians in the opposit side! As everyone very well know, Brazil is during long time the country that export more players for all the continents in the World, specially for the clubs in Europe! But, what it make everything more fantastic and more one time cames to prove for all the World, the total superiority, is that the teams from Brazil always win (when they are part) in the end of "The World Club Championship" for Champions clubs of all the continents (the top of all the titles for clubs) and continues unbeaten until now in every titles and every games played and, in the same time, continues to be the kings, also in the club football and, as not enough, to be, unanimous and without question, outstanding all the time in the all sides and ages in the national teams, including the principal team (with the national side), in "The World Cup", the name knowed for "The World Championship" for national teams, that Brazil has a historic leadership having been the only one to have five (5) "World Championships" titles, consider, also unanimous and without question, the absolute biggest event from the planet! This, winning in all the continents and conditions the "World Cup" was played, what no another national team ever did or can do! When in the very few times some another national team can do, is only inside theirs own country or own continent. Caming back to the last event, the third winning of the "World Club Championship", Brazil is the only country, also in the club level, that leads the statistics and, more fantastic as ever, doing it unbeaten in all the three times Brazil participate of the tornemant, as noted above! Brazil is also the only country that won the official "World Club Championship" three times until the date, the first home (with another Brazilian as runner up!), the second in Japan and the third also in Japan. Fantastic and unique!!!;
  • Brazil is the country that had more times players nominated officially by FIFA "THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD", since this nomination started in 1991: eight (8) times! The players elected "BEST IN THE WORLD" with the years was: Ronaldo, 1996, 1997 and 2002 (three times!); Ronaldinho Gaúcho, 2004 and 2005 (two times!); Romário, 1994; Rivaldo, 1999 and Kaká, 2007;
  • Brazil is also the country with more players nominated officially by FIFA "THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD"! Five (5) players: Ronaldo (three times!), Ronaldinho Gaúcho (two times!), Romário, Rivaldo and Kaká! This another result of Brazil in one democratic vote, with the participation of all the trainers of national teams from the entire world and many other specialists from the universe of the football, is fantastic! Also, is the absolute record!
  • Brazil is the only country that had one man and one woman nominated officially by FIFA, more than one time during the years, since this official nomination begun, "THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD" and, in the same time, "THE BEST PLAYERS OF THE YEAR" in each category (man and woman football). Last year, 2007, the best player in the world football at all and in the man category was Kaká (Brazil) and in the woman football was Marta (Brazil);
  • Brazil is the country that had more times the individual player nominated by FIFA "THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD": Ronaldo (1996, 1997 and 2002);

  • Brazil is also the best nation in all another forms of football, as the leading country in FUTSAL AND BEACH SOCCER, with the record having more World Titles in those World Championships organized officially by FIFA!
  • BRAZIL won "THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF FUTSAL 2008" organized official by FIFA in Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, the capital of the big country. That was the fourth official "World Championship" in this modality of football. This fact proves one time more the domination of BRAZIL in all forms of football. It also confirms and increases the Brazilian records in the more competitive sport of our planet!
  • Brazil won "THE FIFA CONFEDERATIONS CUP" - (THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP), four (4) times: 1997, 2005, 2009 and 2013! This is also absolute record in the second best competition of FIFA, after "The World Championship" (The World Cup). Fantastic!!!
  • Brazil won "THE SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP" - COPA AMÉRICA - (THE CONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP), eight (8) times: 1919, 1922, 1949, 1989, 1997, 1999, 2004 and 2007! That is the oldest championship for nations in the world and has started in 1916! The South American Championship (Copa América) is organized officially by "THE SOUTH AMERICAN CONFEDERATION" and is part of the FIFA'S WORLD CALENDAR!
  • After winning the FIFA Confederations Cup in South Africa, Brazil have regained the top spot in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, thus relegating European champions Spain (2nd, down 1) to second place. Now Brazil have been 6 times in the history "Number One" in the "World Ranking of FIFA", also with the longest time, long way in front of others nations! Absolute record, like in all the fronts!
  • "The Golden Ball" was winning by Kaká (Brazil), "The Silver Ball" (2nd place), as best player, was for Luís Fabiano (Brazil)! "The Golden Shoe", also to Luís Fabiano (Brazil) and "The Fair Play Award" for the team Brazil! The Brazilians won in all the fronts in the FIFA CONFEDERATIONS CUP 2009 in South Africa! Another absolute record!!!
  • The comments of FIFA in the own site is as follows: "Brazil knock Spain off top spot: Victory on all fronts for Brazil: after winning the FIFA Confederations Cup in South Africa, the Seleção have regained the top spot in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, thus relegating European champions Spain (2nd, down 1) to second place. The South Americans last topped the ranking in August 2007, a position to which they have climbed six times in the history of the ranking". This text was published 1 July 2009, in the site of the International Federation (FIFA), when the ranking was changed!
  • Brazil, number one (1) in all kinds of historical statistics and also number one in the average position from FIFA World Ranking creation! Much more being sucessfull during the last years, as the winning for the fourth time of "The Confederation Cup" last time, 1997, 2005, 2009 and 2013 (three times in a row)! Brazil this year, 2013, won easy beating the last World Champions, Spain, by 3 x 0, in one fantastic and very beautiful show of the best football in modern time.

Brazil plays with the following shirts

  • Nº 1: Yellow shirts. Green collars and cuffs. Blue shorts with white vertical stripes at the sides, white socks with green and yellow tops (alternative socks - grey);
  • Nº 2: Blue shirts. White shorts and socks.

  • HISTORICAL NOTE: The famous Yellow, Green and Blue strip was only introduced after the 1950 World Cup. Until 1950, Brazil's strip was all white, with a blue trim, but following the World Cup Final of 1950, the all white strip was considered unlucky by the general public, so the uniform was changed to its present day colours.

    Note: In January 2001 (!), FIFA decided not to recognize matches against FIFA or continental selections as full internationals, classifying them as exhibition games, and scratched all caps and goals earned in these matches from the records. After the French and Italian FAs refused to follow this ruling, the Brazilian FA eventually decided to keep the match on November 6, 1968 vs FIFA (Brazil won 2-1) in the records as well, which is not reflected in the above ranking. In this list we follow the official FIFA's record. Affected players are: Pelé, Rivelino (1 goal), Jairzinho, Gérson, Paulo César, Tostão (1 goal) and Carlos Alberto Torres.

    The journalist, chronicler and historian Luiz Eduardo Lages,
    writes here about "Brazil in the World Cup - 1930 - 2014" and publish some of his statistics always with regular updates.

    Luiz Eduardo Lages also register, through some sections of this site (not only in this column entitled "Brazil In The World Cup")
    the fact that Brazil lead with leftovers and so absolute in number of titles won, the main World Championships official promoted by FIFA,
    i.e. the ranking historical and current of the "World Cup" for national teams and for clubs,
    although Brazilian teams sell many of their players to the main competitors, for later, anyway, win over them. That is to show superiority!


    "The Brazilians create all the time. The creation is essential to the evolution"
