with this victory, Germany collected four championship trophies, the same as Italy. Meanwhile, Brazil is still at the top of the list of winning titles with five trophies. However, Germany’s victory confirmed the domination of the European continent’s origin country over representatives of other confederations. From 26 final appearances, 11 championships were won by representatives from Europe, while representatives from CONMEBOL only won 9 titles.

Results according to confederation

From these data and facts, we hope that new champions from Africa, North America or Asia will emerge. This is possible given the increasingly even development of soccer players. We are just looking forward to the 2018 World Cup whether a new champion might emerge apart from the list of champions above.While football continued to be played in various forms throughout Britain, its public schools (equivalent to private schools in other countries) are widely credited with four key achievements in the creation of modern football codes. First of all, the evidence suggests that they were important in taking football away from its “mob” form and turning it into an organised team sport. Second, many early descriptions of football and references to it were recorded by people who had studied at these schools. Third, it was teachers, students, and former students from these schools who first codified football games, to enable matches to be played between schools. Finally, it was at English public schools that the division between “kicking” and “running” (or “carrying”) games first became clear.
