At 8.5 million square kilometers (3,300,000 sq mi) and with over 214 million people, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country by area and the sixth most populous. Its capital is Brasília,... read more

Brazil is the gods of football. Best national team, best league teams, best rivalries, game vibe, and more. Football is life, passion, and all.

I live in India, but my second love country is Brazil. Brazil football is my half heart.

Brazil is the best football nation in world history.

2 Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a country in the southern half of South America. Argentina covers an area of 2,780,400 km2 (1,073,500 sq mi), making it the second-largest country in South America after Brazil, the fourth-largest country in the Americas, and the eighth-largest country... read more

I've never seen such passionate people when it comes to football as Argentinians. The feeling when they win the World Cup is indescribable. For the people that were in Qatar for the World Cup the day of Argentina vs France, when Montiel scored, there was not as much noise as expected since most of the people were crying with their souls with joy about the victory.

And afterwards, you come to find out that four million people are out in the streets of Buenos Aires celebrating a game.

Argentina is the best team in football. I support team Argentina from Bangladesh. I love Argentina football for everything!

3 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

We should be in the top position, actually. Even though we are improving ourselves to get into the world of football competitions, we are the best. How many people in all those European and South American countries wake up at midnight to watch a football game? I don't think there are a lot. But we Indians wake up at midnight just to see a match that is going on in some other part of the world, only because of the love and respect towards this sport.

Now, Indian football is rising slowly. And I believe that the support the players get from fans like us is an inevitable part of their rise.

6 Spain Spain, or the Kingdom of Spain, is a country in southwestern Europe with parts of territory in the Atlantic Ocean and across the Mediterranean Sea. The largest part of Spain is situated on the Iberian Peninsula; its territory also includes the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, the Balearic Islands... read more

Play football in the school outside with the sun when you were little. Play football in the halls of your house. Play football at the beach. Play football in the streets. Play football in the parks. Talk about football in school, at your job, in the streets, in the bars, at any social event. Football is life in Spain.

Not the biggest football fan myself, but this country is full of football fans.

7 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares... read more

Long, proud, and glorious soccer pedigree and history, almost unmatched. On the international stage, Italy boasts four World Cup titles and six finals appearances, on par with Germany's four wins and just one behind Brazil. Its club sides, playing in one of the best leagues in Serie A - arguably the most tactical of leagues, have been among the best in the world from the onset.

This includes the great Bologna teams who won a Mitropa Cup, a precursor to the Champions League, with some of the most fervent fans around, including those of Napoli and Roma. Fiorentina and Lazio have also seen tournament and league successes. Of course, its big three sides are giants in world football, with Juventus, AC Milan, and Internazionale (Inter Milan).

Its national side and club teams have given soccer some of its most dramatic, cynical, and beautiful players and matches ever witnessed. Italian soccer is a wild ride of ups and downs, bitter disappointment, and pure celebration. And it's only natural that this would be joined by the fact its fans, who were often pioneers with their chanting and dedication to their clubs, would be as fanatical as most fan bases around the world.

10 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

No matter when or where Mexico plays, you will always see the stadium and city packed with Mexican fans. Just look at the crowd.

We literally made an artificial earthquake when Mexico scored during the 2018 World Cup.

They literally cheered so hard that the earth shook. I mean, what else is there to say?

I think Denmark has the best fans by far. Look at the Euros 2020. They support Denmark on another level before and after the circumstances with Christian Eriksen. At the match between Denmark and Belgium, the Danish fans showed yet again how incredible they are!

13 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

The only fans that do not boo and try to put off opposition penalty kickers. They show the best sportsmanship and respect for opposition teams by a wide mile. Really good-natured fans that enjoy a bit of craic and like to include the opposition in the fun.

Good-natured and friendly. Unlike the Eastern Europeans, they don't need pyro and violence to make their mark.

Urdu and English are the official languages of Pakistan. The world's second-highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat)... read more

Who says Pakistan has the worst football fans has to know that we stay up until 3:00 AM just to watch a single match!

21 Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. Scotland is the most mountainous, and least densely populated country in the United Kingdom.

They love their country and they love the countries they visit. Great for the local beer economy.

Best behaved away fans, win or lose.

Best fans in the world, no doubt about it.

Most of us like Brazil or Argentina. Mostly we debate Maradona vs Pele: who is the GOAT. Nowadays, it's Neymar vs Messi. But I love Cristiano Ronaldo most of all.

Bangladesh has a huge audience for football during the World Cup.
