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 Ten

1 Netherlands Netherlands

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!

Of course the Netherlands, 3 times finalists, lost to the hosts twice, twice after extra time, they just as easily could have been 3 time world cup champions, it was that close.

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

We should of won 74,75 and 2010 as well as in 1998 we were unlucky to fall to the brazilians in the semi-final- orange for life!

It still kind of crazy that if the USA mad a miracle run to the final four in Russia 2018... it wouldn't be their first trip to the semis.

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

The only time they placed was in 1930 and that was third

16 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands . Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry .
17 Yugoslavia

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

18 Syria Syria
19 Austria Austria
20 Czechoslovakia

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
