Teams With Most Number Of FIFA World Cup Wins

Winning the FIFA World Cup remains one of the greatest achievements in any sport.

After Uruguay won the first-ever FIFA World Cup in 1930, Italy became the first country to win the championship two years in a row, in 1934 and 1938 and added two more titles to their collection in 1982 and 2006. 

Brazil won the FIFA World Cup for the first time in 1958 and went on to win it four more times. No other country has won the FIFA World Cup with as many victories as Brazil.

The FIFA World Cup began with thirteen teams and has since grown to 32 teams, with the 2026 edition planned to feature 48 nations.

List of FIFA World Cup Teams With The Most Win

1. Brazil – 5 World Cups (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2022)

Brazil won their first FIFA World Cup in 1958, in a competition notable for Pele’s outstanding performance as a 17-year-old. They went on to add two titles in the following three editions. They became the first team to win the tournament four times in 1994, and eight years later, in South Korea, they added a fifth title to their collection. 

Four of these five victories were won by Mario Zagallo, one of Brazil’s greatest players of all time. He won the championship as a player in 1958 and 1962, and then again as a manager in 1970. In 1994, he also worked as an assistant manager.

2. Germany – 4 World Cups (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014)

Germany has won four World Cups (1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014).

Germany’s first three successes came prior to the unification of West and East Germany. In 1954, they won the championship for the first time, defeating Hungary in the final 3-2.

Franz Beckenbauer led Germany to their next two World Cup victories, as captain in 1974 and manager in 1990. Following the merger of the two countries, they won the title for the first time in 2014, under the guidance of Joachim Lowe. 

3. Italy – 4 World Cups (1934, 1938, 1982, 2006)

In 1934 and 1938, the famous Vittorio Pozzo and his Italian squad were the first to win back-to-back titles. Pozzo is the only person to have won the World Cup twice as a manager.

Paulo Rossi’s heroics in 1982 propelled the Azzuri to their third title, and against all expectations, they defeated France in a penalty shootout in 2006 to make it four. 

4. Argentina – 3 World Cups (1978, 1986, 2022)

Argentina competed in the inaugural FIFA World Cup final, losing to Uruguay. They had to wait 48 years for their first championship, which came in 1978. In the final of that edition, they defeated the Netherlands 3-1 with two goals in extra time.

Diego Maradona’s outstanding performance led them to their next championship eight years later, in 1986. The Albiceleste defeated West Germany in an intense final that ended 3-2 in regulation time. 

Lionel Messi scored seven goals and helped on three others to lead Argentina to their third World Cup victory in 2022. Argentina beat France in one of the World Cup’s most exciting finals, ending a 36-year drought for a world title. 

5. Uruguay – 2 World Cups (1938, 1950)

Uruguay, which hosted the first FIFA World Cup, went on to win it, defeating Argentina 4-2 in the final. They went on to win the 1950 edition, which was hosted by Brazil and decided by a round-robin game involving the four top teams from the group rounds. 

Alcides Ghiggia and Schiaffino goals helped them defeat Brazil in the decisive match, making them the only team with a perfect record in finals after competing in two or more finals.

6. France – 2 World Cups (1998, 2018)

Didier Deschamps led France to their first World Cup victory in 1998. Les Bleus defeated Brazil 3-0 thanks to a first-half brace from Zinedine Zidane and an injury-time goal from Emmanuel Petit. 

Deschamps was also at the helm of France’s second World Cup victory in 2018, this time as manager. In the final, they defeated Croatia 4-2, and Deschamps became the third footballer to win the title as both a manager and a player.
