Greatest Soccer Nations

preachinpreach
Let's be honest on this one. Not where your from, honestly who is the best?

The Top Ten

1 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

Only country not have missed a world cup (record impossible to be matched now), 5 championships in their pocket, no fear for any other team, players such Pele with 3 world cups wins... I respect Germany, Italy, Argentina, Spain, Argentina, but there is no equivalent to Brazil yet. Almost a third of all world cups won by this nation, amazing!

5 world cup wins, countless legendary players, and is recognized as the best by most of the world

I am certainly no fan of Brazil in soccer, but even I must admit that, historically, they are the greatest. First of all, they have the most World Cup titles. Second, they are tied first in appearances in the Final. Third, they have qualified for every single tournament-also first place there. In conclusion, they are first in every relevant statistic and, though Germany comes close, there is just no beating Brazil. - Blueyays

2 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germany have won more first, second, and third place titles in FIFA world cups than any other team in the world. Although they haven't taken first most, they are the most consistent team. They don't have star players that carry the team, but use strategy to overcome their opponents. Also, their average age is like 23!

Germany is by far the best footballing nation of all time. They've been the most consistent throughout history and always rebuild and manage to produce world class caliber.

One of the major reasons is due to the number of national trophies. They've won 4 world cup, all in a different decade (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014), as well as hold the title for most European cups with 3, holding this record with Spain. Not only that, they reached more world cup finals than any other nation with 8, (1954, 1966, 1974, 1982, 1986, 1990, 2002, 2014) and have reached more EURO finals with 6 (1972, 1976, 1980, 1992, 1996, 2008). This consistency to always compete at the highest level as well as win national trophies proves that they deserve to be in this place. Over the years we have seen nations fail to compete and win trophies, Brazil during 1980s, Argentina during 1994-2010, Spain 1970s, France 1970s, just to name a few examples. Yet every decade since 1950s, Germany have managed to win a trophy ...more

I believe its more than just how many world cups a nation has won..germany for me outrightly deserves first place because of its consistency to always reach the semis or finals of the worlds most cherished championship...this alone proves that germany shall forever be a mighty force to reckon with..its the only team you can surely always place amongst the top three of every competition.the other two can change but germany has to keep its position

Most World Cup apperinces and won in 2014 when Brazil last won in 2002

3 Argentina

This is way off... it seems people are only focusing on world cup titles... Argentina and France are the only nations to have won every major competition at senior level. Argentina has 2 world cups, 14 Copa Americas (South American championships) two Olympic gold medals and a FIFA confederations cup...making them the nation with the most titles at a senior level behind Uruguay with 19 official titles, the reason I don't rank them 1st is they never won gold at the olympics. Titles are titles, tournaments are tournaments... how can Brazil be 1st if they are 3 in the South American titles behind Uruguay and Argentina? Also... you guys have nations solely on players...not enough to rank eg... Portugal, never won anything. my humble ranking would be 1st Argentina, 2nd Uruguay (remember Uruguay wears 4 stars on their shirts, they won the equivalent to the world cup before it was established twice making them 4 time winners), third Brazil, fourth Germany, fifth Italy.

Argentina is tied with Uruguay, Uruguay has 15 Copa Americas, 2 World Cups and 2 Olympic Golds (Uruguay won their 2 Olympic golds before the inception of the world cup which is why they count them as 2 world cups because at the time the Olympic championship was the biggest football tournament in the world) but they have never won a Confederations Cup, still they have 19 championships, Argentina also has 19, with 2 World Cups, 2 Olympic Golds, 1 Confederations Cup, and 14 Copa Americas, they are number 1 with Uruguay at 19 each, behind them is Brazil with 17 championships (8 Copa Americas, 5 World Cups, 4 Confederations Cups, 0 Olympics) - Leoda1234

Argentina lives and breathes football. They continue to produce amazing players, from both Argentina and from other countries, through their local leagues: think of Messi (newells), aguero (independiente), falcao (river. These are just a few examples

Not to mention a history with some of the greatest players of all time

Argentina deserve to be in the second place after Brazil. I'm talking about tradition and the quality of players are they produced over the decades. ex: Alfredo de stefano, Maradona(God of Soccer), Messi, Batistuta, Burruchaga, Valdano, Cannigia,
Bilardo... endless list.

Your 100% right! No Germany by the way Germany sucks Argentina should be 2nd place!

From Argentina are the two greatest footballers ever: Maradona & Messi. And they have the 4th: Alfredo di Stefano (the 3rd is Pelé).

4 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

Spain is home to some of the greatest modern and older players in history. Whether or not they actually place in the world cup, their players are responsible for the wins of most other countries.

Most of the best players nowadays are from spain and also where the best teams are, Real Madrid Barcelona and Atletico

Spain should be the best soccer nation the world because they've got like the t players ever such as: Iniesta, Ramos, David Silva, Xavi, Pedro, Xabi Alonso etc. Now I know Spain have only won 1 tittle in the world cup but they are better than any team. Just you watch them.

5 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

Brazil, Germany, Argentina AND Italy. Those are your Big Four. Not sure how Spain is above Italy; no disrespect to Spain who have been outstanding the last eight years but their legacy (excluding Liga) is nowhere near Italy historically who have been a power since the 1930s. One has to be mighty impressed by Italy's national team and domestic achievements. They also have produced some of the greatest managers and players in history. Look at any list of greatest players - Italians measure up nicely against Brazilians. Never mind how many great Argentinians and Brazilians footballers/coaches have Italian blood too! Tactically, few countries measure up and they have been quite influential at different points. They also produce unique players with interesting styles like Totti, Pirlo, Baresi, Baggio, Rivera etc.

I know that each and every one of you and Soccer players can do anything that they put there minds towards. In the end Jesus Christ will always help you to know what to do when you are feeling down cause of a game, just get back up cause God is brought behind you even when you think that he is not he is, in a good way.

Baggio, Totti, Maldini, Buffon, Cannavaro, Conti, Rivera we are the best team

THEY WON FOUR WORLD CUPS WHICH MEANS THEY SHOULD BE SECOND OR THIRD

6 Netherlands Netherlands

2 time world cup finalists and the 1988 Euro cup winners - consistently ranked amongst the top when it comes to fifa and elo world rankings- considered the best team never to have won the world cup - has generated some of the best players the game has ever seen - examples: cruyff, neeskens, bergkamp and van nistelrooy - all coming from a relatively small nation of just over 16 million - that compared to the 160 million brazilians - in other words... per capita, holland is tops when it comes to footballing quality - remember total football!

They're Much Better Than 8
Didn't You See How They Played At The World Cup 2010?!
They Were Absolutely Pwning.
They Should Be Number 3 Or 4

According to all players netherlands has the most good players total than any country. Their players and strategy games are so exciting to watch. Even according to fifa, Netherlands should be rated number 1 country in soccer

We haven't won it, but we do much better than most.

7 England England

Ha, England, the history of football, the reason why we all are here talking about this very the subject, the reason FIFA, leagues and Neymar Ronaldo Messi Pele Maradona all became who they are. Not only this, but teams like Leicester and Spurs both are filled with English players some are there best: Deli Alli, Kane Dier, Vardy those teams have GREAT youth scouting and training and since they are English clubs we can be expecting many future English stars. And of course, my final point was the World Cup England won but it was a special cup because of how well England smashed the other teams, not even with some of their best ever players so how well do you think they did in the other cups with those legendary players!

If there was something to REPLACE penalty shootouts, england would have won 2 more world cups at least. Great older players like Shearer, Liniker, Beckham, Owen and the legendary Bobby Moore. Plus some great nowadays players like Rooney, Sterling, Welbeck, Sturridge, Well, the now internationally retired Gerrard, and he may get VERY heavily criticised for reasons I have no idea of, heskey. Ye, Heskey was a TANK of a player. Its just the teamwork needs improving. LOOK HOW WELL THEY HAVE DONE IN THE QUALIFICATION! Its just really annoying how they mess up in the actual thing. But I hope this raises the English hopes. If only penalty shootouts didn't exist...

I know England should not be coming seventh because England has: Rooney, Welbeck, Lampard, Cole, Sturridge, Sterling, Joe hart etc. England should at least beat Netherlands. I know Netherlands has Van Persie, Robben, De Jong but that's a bout it.

get up

8 Portugal Portugal Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

Portugal had and has legendary players such as Eusebio, Luis Figo, Cristiano Ronaldo, and many others. Even though they never won any World Cup, they are definitely in top 10.

Greatest soccer nation never to have won the World Cup...

I don't think Portugal should be the best but they do have Cristiano Ronaldo. That's all I'm saying... Because Ronaldo is my second favorite player.

Portugal has a great football team, though underrated.

France should definitely be in the top 5. I like to think that any football tournament before the 70s should not really count because back then, only a few nations competed and the organization was awful, giving the teams that cared the most the best chance (Italy, england, Uruguay, Brazil... ) France used to be horrible because they really did not care, and as a result not many people give them a change. However, if you look at their modern performance, they are definitely one of the greatest football nations ever. Euro 1984 winners, 1998 world cup winners, euro 2000 winners, confederation cup winners 2001 and 2003, world cup finalists in 2006 (which they frankly should have won)... I would honestly that France's 1998 through 2001 team was the second best team in the history of football, second only to Spain's current team. Of course, Brazil dominated in the earlier part of the 20th century, but if you look at the competition back then, it really is not saying much. Now, with all the ...more

How are France number 9? France are much better than Portugal and England.

I believe France should be much higher

10 Uruguay

The Uruguay national football team is one of the most titled teams in the world. The squad won more than 20 awards and it is a record; World Cups (2), Copa Americas (15), Copa Libertadores (8), Pan Am games, Confederation Cup (1980, Summer Olympics games, etc, etc, etc, etc and we can go on and on and on.

It is an interesting fact that Uruguay is the smallest member country of South American Football Confederation but nevertheless the team won South American championship 15 times, taking the lead over such teams as Brazil and Argentina.

The Uruguay national football team won the very first World Cup in 1930 held in their home country. In 1950 the team won the World Cup again but after that it showed little success. The squad finished fourth in 1954, 1970 and 2010.

Oscar Tobarez is the head coach, Diego Forlan is the best goal-scorer (32) and the leader in the number of games, he played 85 games.

Uruguay should be amongst the top 10 on FIFA rankings at all ...more

Wow there is something wrong here. How can Mexico be rated better than Uruguay? Someone must be on hallucinogenic drugs! That only serves to promote agreeing with me that France, Spain, Argentina, Portugal, England, and the Netherlands, should not be ranked higher than Uruguay. It's simple math: Uruguay = 3.5 million - England 63.5 million look at these numbers and compare tournaments won. Yeah Uruguay should be way way way higher. This is a crappy list.

This is a nation where the sport defines their identity, with a state the size of Washington and a population of only 3 million, they have won the World Cup twice, more than Spain, France, Netherlands, and England. The Copa America 15 times, no other country has more. They produce quality superstar footballers like Cavani, Godin, Forlan, and Suarez. The only reason they're not in the top 4 or 5 is blatant ignorance and national pride for lesser countries.

I'm Uruguayan. It's such a poor, but blessed country.

12 Mexico Mexico

Honestly, I don't know how Mexico got to be ranked so high in this list. They might have some good players but football (soccer) is a team game. Individual players matter but team strategy and dynamic in my opinion matter most. An example would be Germany which doesn't have extremely good players like Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo and still is able to make it to the top four, semifinal or finals in the World Cup. In the future Mexico might be a decent team but right now you can't compare it to Uruguay or Croatia.

Hopefully in the future more stars will arise, they still have a pretty decent team.

I can't believe Mexico was ranked this low in the list. If people see how they make their goals it is pretty fascinating. They are probably not as good as Germany or Portugal but they still kick butt in soccer. Plus they have Chicharito who is one of the best, and people usually only like Christiano because of his looks and not his skill.

Chile plays one of the best soccer than any other team in the world. How is Colombia ahead of Chile? Please stick to making empanadas. Only a couple years ago you were last in qualifying and now you guys think you can play. Win a copa america vs Argentina and then you can speak. You lose 2-1 vs Brazil. We tie 1-1 and lose in penalties. You guys don't have the same level of play as Chile.

How many cups you have Chile? you are so disgusting people! you have won just once in all your history to Argentina and you think you play good soccer. Think how many times Argentina beat you and didn't say anything. This is the main difference between having a mature and a loser attitude.

Come on!...They won the copa america twice in a row
