Top Ten Countries Never to Win the FIFA World Cup

All of these countries are brilliant at the beautiful game, but none of them have ever taken home the best trophy available!

The Top TenXW


Finalists in 1974 when they lost to West Germany 2-1, in 1978 when they lost 3-1 to Argentina, and in 2010 when they were defeated 1-0 to Spain! Not to mention the wizardry of one of the greatest ever players-Johan Cruyff!

I made this list before I created my account. Just in case you wanted to know who wanted to create it. Hope you enjoy! - DatIrishman

I kinda wanted them to win, actually. - Pony

7United StatesThe United States of America, or the U.S.A for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states. 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence in 1776 with more.

They finished third in the first ever FIFA World Cup. That is however, their highest all time finish.

8IndiaIndia, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

But still India is better than usa in football. But not rugby

India can win the next world cup.

Yugoslavia in 1930 played the Uruguay World Cup semi finals and lost because the referee was from Montevideo. Serbia scored 2 goals and the referee didn't count them. There is a movie about the World Cup 1930 and there is a scene witch is true when the Policeman next to the stadium passed to the player of Uruguay and the Uruguayan scored, SO NOT FAIR. Yugoslavia deserved to win that match and go to the final


Czechoslovakia isn't a country anymore it split in 1992 into the Czech Republic and Slovakia so I guess they can't win a world cup since they dead
