World Cup Soccer Results - Introduction

Hello and welcome to my list of World Cup winners and the complete results of every World Cup game going back to 1930 when the first World Cup was held in Uruguay.

I decided to write this article on World Cup winners for anyone interested in learning more about the World Cup history.

FIFA World Cup is the most watched event in the world and it has been around for almost 100 years changing many World Cup champions over the years.

The first World Cup was held by Uruguay in 1930. This World Cup had only 13 teams participating because of hard traveling conditions, in particular the boat ride across the Atlantic.

Even though the year was 1930, fans from all over the world gathered together making the final match between Uruguay and Argentina a spectacle played in front of 94,000 people.

Now looking forward 80 years after the first World Cup and instead of 13 participating teams we had the honor to watch 32 top teams in the world battle it out for the World Cup trophy in South Africa 2010 World Cup.

I wanted to make this web page of World Cup soccer results and add it to my World Cup history that you can find at the bottom of this article.

Many players have come and gone, some legends and others just glad to have appeared in a competition of this magnitude.

Few of the players have made a mark on the World Cup by showing exceptional skills, breaking records and writing their names in the history books that will be read for many years to come.

Players like Pele, Ronaldo, Beckenbauer, Mattheus, Zidane and very few others are recognized names throughout the world and even though they have retired from proffesional soccer, their world cup appearances and what they brought to the tournament is looked up on the internet daily :)

World Cup is held in different part of the world every 4 years so many players have 1, 2 or 3 at most World Cup appearances before their age catches up to them.

There are very few players that played in 4 or 5 different World Cup's.

The record for most World Cup appearances is held by only 2 players that participated in 5 World Cup's.

These players are Antonio Carbajal from Mexico and Lothar Matthaeus, Federal Republic of Germany.

Brazilian Ronaldo has 4 World Cup appearances and is also a record holder for scoring most goals by shaking the net 15 times in his 4 World Cup appearances.

So here is the list of all the results from the 1930 World Cup held in Uruguay till recently finished 2010 World Cup held in South Africa.
