Best National Soccer Teamsozzydog12 Which county has the best current soccer squad and don't base your choices on the world cup.
The Top Ten
Spain PlayStation very well but I don't understand why many considers them the best of all time. They have been 35 consecutive official matches undefeated before been destroyed by young brazil team ( first match playing brazil what may justify why took so long to loose ), but this record is shared with Brazil. Brazil and Argentina can not play europian cups, but in all major world wide cups brazil is far more successful. 7 world cups finals, 5 World Cup wins and 4 confederation cups. What about Spain? Just one World Cup and 0 confederation cups? Before comparing with brazil Spain must match the success of many other nations... ( Italy, Germany, Argentina e Uruguay are far more successfull )
Five world cups.
Top team in FIFA World Cup - All-time rankings (best numbers overall)
It doesn't matter how good the "current" European sensation is --recent years, Spain; before them, Italy; before, France, before Germany, etc. -- Brazil IS ALWAYS THE TEAM TO BEAT.

Germany is historically one of the three most successful national teams at international competitions, having won a total of three World Cups and three European Championships. They have also been runners-up three times in the European Championships, four times in the World Cup, and further won four 3rd places. East Germany won Olympic Gold in 1976. Germany is the only nation to have won both the men's and women's World Cups. Germany's rivals include England, The Netherlands, and Argentina.
Germany have a really good chance of winning the World Cup this year. Neur, Phillip Lahm, Bastian Shcweinshwigher ( If I spell your name wrong I am sorry) Mesut Ozil, Muller, Reus, Kroos, Gotze and so may more players that are star quality. 4 time winners of the world cup have been in the semi-finals 4 times plus there other 4 wins that is 8 times. Germany also are the only teams to ever have the men and the women both win the world cup. Germany is one of those big teams when you think about football. They are in the group of death and very one thinks that they are going to walk out with 9 points. In the group of death I don't think that is possible. They are the top 5 teams in the world. All of Spain's stars are getting old Xavi 33 years old this is his last world cup. ( I think because a 37 year old man can't compete) Inestia 30 years old. England's players are getting destroyed. Argentina only has Messi. There real threats are Netherlands Brazil and Italy. Italy almost got beaten ...more - zotz99
Germany should be in 2nd place because they have one more cups than Spain

Spain winning both the world and European cup in the last couple of years, are proving they are the best team ever. Yes this is certainly a golden age for Spanish football. But some of the players they have we'll be all time legends, not just in Spain but in history(Casillas, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyols). People we're talking about the best team ever!... Not the number of cups won. I hope they win Euro 12" that'll put the nail in the coffin!
Spain has won 3 major tournaments in the last 4 years and they have enough firepower to be major threat in 2014. Brazil got lucky in the confederations cup. Spain is fully capable of defending their World Cup if they recruit more young talent onto their squad. They also manage to dominate possession in almost every game. VIVA ESPANA!
They just play soccer in an incredibly way. The 3 Best Major tournaments. No one wanna play against this squad. They just play as good as they know in against the best sides in the best matches. I am not talking about friendlies or honor tournaments like confederations one.
Torres, casillas, ramos, pique etc... SO MANY GOOD PLAYERS 🤤🤤V 110 Comments
Argentina is the greatest football nation in history. It's currently the best squad in the world, having reached 3 consecutive finals in 3 years in a row. Unfortunately, luck has stopped them from claiming three titles recently but it's not like they need any more championships. They're already the most championship-winning national football team in history and are therefore the most successful football selection of all time with more than 20 Official Championships in:
15 Copa Americas (1910, 1921, 1923, 1927, 1929, 1931, 1935, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1957, 1958, 1991, 1993)
2 FIFA World Cups (1978, 1986)
2 Olympic Gold Medals (2004, 2008)
1 FIFA Confederations Cup (1992)
Argentina gave as all time football legends: Diego Maradona, Alfredo Di Stefano, Gabriel Batistuta, Daniel Passarella, Javier Zanetti, Diego Simeone, Juan Sabastien Veron, Juan Roman Riquelme, Javier Saviola, and Roberto Ayala.
They have the current best squad:

MAradona, the best player of the 20th century was from Argentina. Messi, the best current player is from Argentina. That says it all. Argentina has the most entertaining football ever, and they have some of the best players too. The reason that they are not achieving top level success right now is the don't have a high quality coach.

During the earliest days of Italian nation football, it was common for a Technical Commission to be appointed. The Commission took the role that a standard coach would currently play. Ever since 1967, the national team has been controlled by the coaches only.
For this reason, the coach of the Italian national team is still called Technical Commissioner (Commissario tecnico or CT).

4 world cups the best team in Europe. In 2006 they only conceded two goals: 1 an own goal by Zaccardo against USA and zidane penalty in the final.
They have been excellent through out football history from winning 2 world cups in a row in 1934 and 1938 then to winning the European championship in 1968, then to winning the world cup again in 1982 and again in 2006 along with several other world cup and European finals dotted around. They play like no other team with their unique style which makes their football so beautiful to watch.
Italy has been making history since 1934, they should be at least in 3rd place.V 59 Comments
Dude they are the best team... you all suck for making them 21! I mean they have Robin Van Persie! He is amazing! I mean Brazil deserves to be number 1 because they have been to the world cup the most but Netherlands should be in the top 5!
I'm not dutch but you must admire there skills and contribution for the beautiful game over the past 4 decades, and that for such a small country, they really are the Brazil of Europe, football is in there genes
The dutch are the founders of total football. There legacy is not only in there game and for Holland, but the made football more interesting for the whole world.
They constantly got defeated by themselves, that's why they didn't win anything.V 51 Comments

All great players for England, England have a spirit for there footy matches, they have won the World Cup only once in 1966 - roblist
If you think England are so good then how did they win the World Cup only once in 1966? Brazil have won it five times as much! And yet England are 6th?! Totally wrong.
One of the best teams to ever play football. England also has the best players including Beckham & Rooney. By winning the World Cup in 1966, they've shown the whole world what a great team they are. GO ENGLAND!
Hope we win 2018 World Cup England all the way 🇬🇧V 47 Comments
France should be in the top 5 France produced so many incredible players like Raymond Kopa Michele Pltini and of course the Legendary Zindine Zidane they won the 1998 World Cup the 1984 and 2000 euro cup they also won the two confederation cup and the 1984 Olympics.
France are much more successful than England... How come they are so low? They are a one time world champion, 2 times European champions and 1 time world cup runners up.. They should be placed after Brazil, Italy, Germany, Spain and Argentina. For me, France is the sixth most successful country in the world.
France is amazing! In my opinion they deserve to be second place according to their wins against Germany plus my grandparents live there and my dad speaks French there should be a lot more votes for them
They deserve to be at least top 3 if not top 1V 26 Comments
One of the most decorated teams ever, this team is famous for Christiano Ronaldo, they have never won a world cup, they have been runners up in 1966 but lost to England 2-1, and have been runners up in the 2004 Euro Cup were they lost to Greece. But in the 2010 World Cup smashed North Korea 7 - 0 in a match were Christiano Ronaldo scored 3 or 4 goals, and could be one of portugals best performances - roblist
Portugal may be a small country, with very few football players comparing to other top national squads, but despite all of that, they still face the big ones in outstanding matches. Portugal may have never won a major competition but they already have a title: the most underrated team.
Although we have never won any title, we play good football, enjoyable and organized. The only thing left is a bit of luck...

Won first world cup EVER in 1930 very good team luiz suarez is a fantastic player
Respect from Romania! You're an amazing team, and I hope cause you will win the World Cup in 2014!
Uruguay is a very underrated team, they can play football, they showed one of the best efforts at the 2010 World Cup and have won the World Cup itself 3 times, A good effort. - roblist

Colombia has some of the best players in the world right now. Brazil may have had it's moments, but it's not as good as it was before. Spain won one world cup and then it all went downhill. Spain lost its first game in the World Cup 2014 right after it had won the World Cup 2010. Spain is not bad, but is not that good. Its chance at the Euro Cup right now got lost somewhere. Sure, Colombia has not won a World Cup before, but it's really possible they will. They were a comeback and definitely a star team in the World Cup 2014. Argentina isn't that good either. Just because it made the final in the Copa America Centenario 2016, doesn't even mean it would win. In fact, I was surprised it didn't win. Anyways, Colombia has a lot of potential and it is young, while other teams aren't.
Colombia is an amazing team and knows their ways just cause they have some bad days we all do and Yea Brazil is good but only cause they cheat Colombia made Plenty of goals except since Brazil cheated on the World Cup against Colombia the referees didn't count most of them AND the referees have our cards when we didn't deserve them
Colombia has such a great team, they proved it today October 11 against Chile, they were losing 3-0 and they ended up tying. Now they have a spot in the World Cup and I'm pretty sure they will surprise us.

Wait and see in 2014... Quarter finals at least
Just look at the team, its great, they are maybe not so good as spain or germany, but Wait and see..
I love most of the players in Belgium and I feel like they are better than Uruguay and Colombia.
They have many great players and they should at least be in the top 10 of the worldV 22 Comments
This is the only country that calls football soccer and instead of calling soccer football they call American football, football that's why sometimes United States soccer team can't be taken seriously they are good but just sometimes dumb, but they are more American Football that's there excuse. Hopefully they don't call FIFA some other crap
The united States are underrated and you shouldn't under estimate their ability to play Soccer. They have been Runners up in the World Cup, there biggest win was 11 - 0 and they have won the Gold Cup Four Times - roblist
It is cool and it might become much better
USA has great potential they are my favorite team but they should be number 20, they could be top ten easily in the next 3 years because we pulisic and he is getting better so go USA!V 57 Comments
Mexico is playing in such a better level, they have beaten The US almost half the time with 4 or more goals & they have beat Brazil over the past years more times than any other country I think they deserve to be higher in the rank.
Mexico is a great team because they beated france 2-0 I think. They might as well beated and lose against italy in the world cup. France too in the world cup and someone said they beat brazil like 2 times already. But never won a world cup in history
They should be in the top 10
Mexico is the best I'm there biggest fan everV 113 Comments
Chile could have the fastest rising talent than any other team, they have been runners up in the World Cup and have won the copa America Four times. And they put on a good show at the 2010 World Cup, when they shocked everybody by leaving the Group Stage undefeated. They may have only had 8 appearances, but in those 8 appearances they have shown a lot of talent and have been great! - roblist
Chile should be at least 5th they are better then the teams that are above them and they made it into the quarter finals in the COPA America Brazil is first and didn't get to the quarter finals
They are a great team they are way better than many of the teams above them they should at least be in the top 10

What we r way better then most of the teams above us
Japan should at least be in the top 10! They are an amazing team!
They only have fast players but that doesn't help
Japan stinks, let's be honest. Good votes because of their sneaky, biased support doesn't mean they're actually good.
Statistically Japan is way worse than other Asian countries, like Korea, who actually has pretty good statistical values. Plus, Japan has really sneaky and unfair ways to put down other countries to make themselves look good.
Take a look at Japan's history book to see what I mean.
Their present is not their best, I'll give you that. However, even though they didn't make it to the last WC, they have a good place in world football with Zlatan Ibrahimovic as their leading figure. There are nine "Greats" in football history: The eight champions plus the Netherlands. After that Sweden has the best record and presence throughout the years. Sweden played in a World Cup Final (even if it was theirs). Got in third place twice. It should be way higher on this list.
Sweden has a much better record than many of the teams above on this list. What are people thinking?
Come on Sweden we are playing a game in Ireland and I got Sweden so hope you win. Best of luck Olivia

Costa Rica has a good team as you saw in the world cup qualifying the beat the us and Mexico I think Honduras to some of the best teams in North America.
Costa Rica is the most underrated national team in the world. They got into the quarterfinals in 2014 and it is only 19? Come on people.
How is Japan higher than Costa Rica. Costa Rica is the way better team

Cameroon are not that good and a lot of the countries like Bosnia and Croatia and the Ivory coast should be above them.
Cammaroon should be first there my favourite even do I'm not from cammaroon
They are a team of great passing. They play collectively as Spain and Barcelona. They have a team that can become as great as the top teams in the world but their problems are two things: they need good finishers and good defenders. Again, they pass the ball good and have good stamina. Jean Sony Alcenat and Joseph Peterson as well as Leonel Saint-preux, Maurice and Guerriers are fantastic players. They won the caribean cup and they have been recently analyzsed as the fourth technical team in America after Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Mexico, in term of collective play. When they come back they will move 10 in placement and they will be one of the world rivals in soccer. Mark my word!
Such a great team! Very proud to be Haitian!
This country is the dark knight rising of soccer in Ameica. They are disciplined and trained to play for the sake of the game and they pass the ball well and with precision. Maurice, Saint-preux and Alcenat and Guerrier and Peterson and Tiga will rain next year in any friendly that the fifa might suggest with haiti.V 1 Comment
Because they always surprise the other team by coming on hard when they seem to lose ;). They kick more than just ballz.
Greetings from U.S.
Great team! Beautiful play but can be a little lazy ;( other than that they play great football and went onto the finals in 2010.
The Turkish national team has a lot of great players and the players pass a lot, they do not just sprint away and try to score goals like morons.
How is Turkey behind Haiti. Haiti isn't even a tiny bit of a pro football team. Turkey deserves to be in top 15. I don't truly like this list. Turkey has Arda Turan however Haiti lost to Brazil so badly this Copa America and doesn't have a player who is nearly as good as Arda Turan. Turkey does lose but Haiti and some of the stinking teams in front of it don't deserve to be there.V 11 Comments
Poland is in 7th place in the world they have the fourth best striker on there team, and they won against every team to get to the world cup finals except for Denmark and they are one of the only two teams that have beat Germany they should be in the top ten list they are better than 3/4 the teams on this list
Third place in two world cups. And we are in 70th place, something wrong here.
Lewandowski one of the best player in the world and poland is better than england and you will change your mind when the 2018 world cup comes up

Czech Republic is beautiful dress and good football point. One point to best goal keeper in world Petr Cech. Czech Republic be last team Czechoslovakia, this team have one silver medal on masters world. To day is best guard to Petr Cech.
They are very under rated. Should be higher. Have one of the best goalies as well
Czech Rep should be much much higher on this list. They were runners up at the World Cup twice (as Czechoslovakia) played in third place at World Cup. Runners ups at the Euro. Have been ranked 2nd, always make most big tournaments and have some of the best players. Cech, Medved, Baros and many more.
Canada needs to make it to a final soon otherwise they'll keep watching stupid American football! Canada! Amazing people amazing country!
I do not think Canada will win the FIFA world cup for 2014, but I believe they will improve for the next couple of years.
Canada is not even playing in the 2014 world cup. But maybe they are strong.

Very underrated country of some of the most technical players in the world. Coaches from abroad have noticed that.. the biggest problem has been corruption in the FA, bad owners and agents, etc.. but with a new FA president and a great generation of youth, there shouldn't be as many talents wasted in the coming years! Romania should always be a top 10-15 country...
Romania had one of the best teams in Europe in the 1990's. Hagi was undoubtedly a football legend. They still produce many talented players and in a few years they may be able to cause serious damage in major tournaments.V 2 Comments
Has players in all top leagues of the world. Besides, those players are cool and very professional on the field of play. Other teams have foreign players and not professional

Algeria rocks to death
Algeria participated in the 2014 world cup whereas many other powerful teams didn't.
Mehrez, Slimani, Feghouli... Everyone needs to know them!
And also Zinedine Zidane, Karim Benzema... are other Algerian, French-Born players. They got Algerian blood in their veins. In 2014 World Cup, Algeria could win 3-2 against Germany if the excluding games didn't exist. They did 1-1 and had to be defeated in the prolongation. They did better that France and of course, than Brazil (lost 7-1 against Germany)
Amazing team, with talent young and old just waiting to flourish. Mark my words, THEY WILL SOON BE A POWERHoUSE.
Pakistan is very stupid country India is much better in football than Pakistan
Amazing team, they can do much better than what they are doing. ! They just need some more practice.. !
Pakistan are not in the top 100
They are like the second worst national team
South Korea sure is the best team they came 4th in the 2002 FIFA world cup unfortunately losing by Turkey 3-2 and Turkey only won by ONE NILL.
South Korea definitely deserves to be at least top 25! They are the 2nd best team in Asia and won AFC several times.
The South Korea people have very strong and they eat lot of food. So, they can be the fat and strong.

Please Bulgaria is better than all of the 10 teams infront of her
Bulgaria finished fourth in 1994 on the World Cup but deserved maybe even to win it with players such as Stoichkov, Kostadinov, Lechkov and others we should have beaten Italy and got in the final but the French referee didn't let us. Even now Bulgaria still gives good quality players such as Berbatov, Martin Petrov, Stilyan Petrov, Milanov, Manolev and I think if Berbo returns to the Bulgarian national team we will do very good on the upcoming World Cup in Brazil and even if he doesn't we can still do good. We almost beat Italy in 2012 and could've done it but maybe we had no luck cause the match finished 2:2 but even then squadra was still shaking from fear. I think Bulgaria may have a future in football if the black Toto stops and our footballers be more disciplined.

On there day that team would have been in Top 10 in the world.
If you were to play Serbia's defense and Brazil's offense... IT WOULD BE ALL OVER
Because Serbia got some of the most best defenders and players in the world and because we have Neven Subotic 'Borussia Dortmund' Branislav Ivanovic 'Chelsea' Aleksandar Kolarov 'Manchester City' Matija Nastasic 'Manchester City' and also Filip Duricic' Benefica' and other great great players.
I'm very surprised with a lot of countries that aren't even in the top 20! Switzerland are easily a top 20 team!
They are an amazing team they almost beat Argentina
Why the Switzerland can be the top 49.

Malaysia football is getting worse and worse
so bad - PopGeorge1678
Since 1980,they were great footballers.But(i knew this was about to happen)they are now getting even worse and worse in the real modern world.There's no hope they will win any medals in any tournaments and maybe the Olympics.that's why I don't really have much hope with the Malaysian athletes since the Olympics,all of them and all of the Olympics.Just when we think like this for example "Oh their in finals now,YEAH! Their opponents are no match against them now! They will get gold! "But NO! It turns out that it was upside down like Lee Chong Wei fighting Lin Dan and Win to the Rio Olympic finals.But now Chen Long just stop him from getting gold.Just like the new Malaysian footballers going To the AFF CUP 2016.We all thought they will beat Vietnam,but the hope was now broken.that's why don't give them hope anymore once you now they will lose.
The player are suck they should get great player their is a lot young good players
