1. Crystal Palace Vs Tottenham – 2 (Friday)

Tottenham are currently leading the table with 23 points and with this early fixture on Friday they have a chance to stretch their league lead to 5 points. Spurs have won all their last 3 H2H meetings with Palace and they are currently in very good shape. Spurs will win this game.

2. Girona Vs Celta Vigo – 1 (Friday)

Girona are having one of their best ever starts to the La Liga Santander season as they currently sit 2nd on the log with equal points with Real Madrid. Celta Vigo have not won a game in their last 5 games and I do not see them stopping high flying Girona from attaining 3 points tonight. Omupiira guli waka.

3. Bochum Vs Mainz – O2.5 (Friday)

Both sides are sitting bottom of the Bundesliga table 17th and 18th respectively, oh my; what should I say about this game? Anyway, both sides easily concede goals with less defensive abilities. I do anticipate an end to end game with both sides rooting for a win to boost their jump out of relegation. Goals will be scored in this fixture.

4. Wolves Vs Newcastle – Yes (Saturday)

Wolves are currently 12th placed as Newcastle sits 6th on the log. 4/5 last H2H meetings have seen both teams scoring against each other and I do still anticipate the same thing today. Newcastle may win but conceding will be a constant since the game is at Molineux stadium.

5. Barcelona Vs Real Madrid – O2.5 (Saturday)

Real Madrid are currently leading the La Liga log as their rivals (Barcelona) sit 3rd. 4/5 last H2H meetings have seen O2.5. Barcelona playing at a neutral ground, I anticipate an end to end encounter with intent of securing the top spot of the league as 1 point separates the 2 sides.

6. Anderlecht Vs Leuven – 1 (Saturday)

Anderlecht currently sit 2nd on the log as Leuven are 12th just a place above relegation. The home side lost by 3:2 to Standard Liege last weekend in a dramatic game and I do see them bouncing back today against struggling Leuven to boost their title hopes this season. Home win is the safest bet here.

7. Hibernian Vs Celtic – 2 (Saturday)

At Easter road in Edinburg, 9th placed Hibernian host log leaders Celtic as they look to extend their league. Celtic have won 3/5 last H2H with Hibernian and have won their last 2 league outings. I see them attaining 3 points today.

8. Man United Vs Man City – O2.5 (Sunday)

Wow! Wow! Wow! It’s the Manchester derby coming at  a perfect time as both sides have recently excelled in champions league in mid-week. Will Onana and Maguire still step up for the Red devils like they did in the Champions League? Everyone is waiting to see what will happen. But according to me; I do see goals flocking in as both sides want to up their league positions. Man City is currently 2nd and Man United is 8th placed. 4/5 last H2H meetings in all competitions have seen O2.5.

9. Inter Milan Vs AS Roma – 1 (Sunday)

Inter Milan currently leads the table as AS Roma sits 7th on the log. I anticipate an end to end game but Inter are the favorites in this fixture following their high flying form and the game being played at San Siro.

10. Napoli Vs AC Milan – HSH: 2 (Sunday)

At Stadio Diego Armando Maradonna in Naples Napoli host Ac Milan as the race to Scudetto continues. AC Milan are 2nd placed and Napoli currently sit 4th.

I anticipate a reserved game in first half as both will first aim at not conceding early. I do see more goals in the second half. GSB Uganda provides odd 2.05 for most goals to be scored in 2nd half.



Unveiling the Football GOAT of the 21st Century

Unveiling the Football GOAT of the 21st Century

In an ever-changing football world, who is the 21st-century GOAT? Lionel Messi of Argentina is the GOAT of modern football. The FIFA World Cup 2022 is the latest monument to his unmatched greatness. Messi’s record of scoring in every tournament stage, culminating in Argentina’s win over France, cements his status as a football icon.

Understanding the GOAT Phenomenon

“GOAT,” short for Greatest of All Time, is prevalent in modern sports. It reflects greatness and an athlete’s career peak. The phrase indicates magnificence, however it is often used casually and subjectively. Football fans, journalists, and pros debate the GOAT continually.  Nevertheless, one name consistently stands out as the GOAT of the modern era – Lionel Messi.

Messi’s Unrivaled Legacy

Lionel Messi’s career is compared to Diego Maradona and Pele. Messi has been the world’s finest player for nearly a decade with a record seven Ballon d’Or titles. His unique combination of goal scoring and playmaking makes him our greatest footballer.

Messi’s name is gold in football history. His time with FC Barcelona in Spain is famous. Besides being Barcelona’s all-time best scorer, he’s La Liga’s top assist giver. Messi’s eleven La Liga titles have set a record in Spain.

Messi’s individual honors are amazing. He has won seven Ballon d’Ors and six European Golden Shoes, proving his dominance as Europe’s top scorer. He is also the second-highest UEFA Champions League goal-scorer, winning four titles with Barcelona.

Messi’s actual genius on the pitch lies beyond numbers and trophies. His playmaking and goal-scoring abilities make him a complete footballer. In addition to scoring goals, he creates chances for his teammates, improving their performance. Lionel Messi is the 21st-century GOAT of football.

The GOAT Contenders

While Messi reigns supreme as the GOAT, there are other noteworthy contenders in the footballing arena.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi’s teammate and prolific goal-scorer, is one of the best footballers of his generation. Ronaldo has made an indelible impact on football with five UEFA Champions League trophies with Real Madrid and a record for most Champions League and international goals. CR7, who guided Portugal to their first international win at the 2016 European Championships, remains a global superstar in his later years.

  • Zinedine Zidane

Midfield maestro Zinedine Zidane reached his career peak as he led France to a 1998 World Cup win at home. A complete player, he scored, assisted, dribbled, and managed his team. His successful club career with Real Madrid and Juventus matched his international success. After retiring as a player, Zidane led Real Madrid to three Champions League victories as a manager.

  • Ronaldinho

Ronaldinho, modern football’s greatest performer, wowed fans with his skills and charm. He could nutmeg opponents and score amazing free kicks. He helped Barcelona win their first UEFA Champions League in the 21st century. He also won the 2002 FIFA World Cup with Brazil and was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2006.

  • Xavi

Xavi, a midfield virtuoso, is considered one of the greatest European football players ever. His key involvement in Barcelona’s success under Pep Guardiola and Spain’s international success reinforces his stature. Xavi won four Champions League titles and many La Liga triumphs with Barcelona. The next stage of his distinguished career is managing Barcelona.

  • Andres Iniesta

Andres Iniesta, Spain’s golden generation’s heartbeat, shaped world football. He scored the winning goal against the Netherlands in Spain’s 2010 FIFA World Cup final. He was overshadowed by Messi and Ronaldo and missed the Ballon d’Or despite his great career. However, his Barcelona and Spain legacy is unmatched.

In conclusion, Lionel Messi reigns supreme as the GOAT of football in the 21st century. His unprecedented achievements, both individually and with his teams, coupled with his unparalleled footballing genius, firmly establish his legacy. While other football legends have made their mark, Messi’s reign as the GOAT is indisputable in the modern era.


The 6 Most Entertaining England Football Matches in History

The 6 Most Entertaining England Football Matches in History

As an England fan, the rollercoaster of emotions that accompanies supporting the Three Lions is both a joy and a challenge. Each match is memorable for its triumphs and heartbreaks. England, a team that often disappoints, has played in some of the most thrilling and memorable football matches ever.

This article revisits the 6 most memorable England football matches that have captivated fans and the footballing world.

  1. England 4-1 Netherlands, June 1996

One of the most memorable England matches took place in the group stage of Euro 96 when England faced the Netherlands. Both teams needed just a draw to secure a place in the quarter-finals, but the Three Lions had other plans. The game was a spectacle, played out in front of a passionate Wembley crowd.

The defining moment came with England’s third goal when Paul Gascoigne’s artful pass found Teddy Sheringham, who selflessly set up Alan Shearer for a powerful finish. It was a display of remarkable teamwork and skill, fueling the nation’s hope for a major trophy. However, as fate would have it, the dream remained elusive.

  1. Argentina 2-3 England, November 2005

In 2005, England clashed with their historic rivals, Argentina, in a friendly match held at Switzerland’s Stade de Geneve. The game got off to an electrifying start, with Hernan Crespo giving Argentina an early lead. However, England was not to be outdone.

Wayne Rooney connected with a David Beckham header to level the score. England’s defense wobbled at times, allowing Argentina to regain the lead, but the English team had one more twist in the tale. Sven Goran Eriksson’s bold move to pair Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney up front paid off. Owen scored two late headers, securing a remarkable comeback victory.

  1. Germany 1-5 England, September 2001

During the 2002 World Cup qualification campaign, England had a shaky start and faced their archrivals, Germany, at Wembley, where they suffered a defeat. However, the script took a dramatic turn on September 1, 2001, at the Olympiastadion in Munich.

In a sensational display, Michael Owen netted a brilliant hat-trick, accompanied by Steven Gerrard’s first international goal and a late Emile Heskey strike. The emphatic victory marked Germany’s second-ever World Cup qualifier home defeat, leaving the entire footballing world in awe. Franz Beckenbauer aptly described it as “fantasy football.”

  1. Germany 1-2 England, November 2008

In 2008, Fabio Capello led a squad of predominantly reserve players to face a formidable Germany side at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium. All signs pointed to an impending English disappointment, but football is unpredictable.

John Terry, in a thrilling match, scored a late winner. The Germans’ solitary goal came as a result of a defensive mix-up. It was an extraordinary triumph, ending Germany’s unbeaten streak in Berlin for 35 years and offering England a glimmer of hope.

  1. Argentina 2-2 (4-3) England, June 1998

On June 30, 1998, England played Argentina in the World Cup Round of 16 in France in one of their most exciting contests. This match was important because England may revenge Diego Maradona’s 1986 “Hand of God” incident.

A close match began with both teams scoring early goals.  Alan Shearer and Gabriel Batistuta netted penalties in the first ten minutes. However, the highlight of the match was 18-year-old Michael Owen’s solo goal that kick-started his illustrious career. Despite Javier Zanetti’s equalizer, the second half and injury time were fraught with tension.

David Beckham’s red card for a kick at Diego Simeone and Sol Campbell’s disallowed header in the dying moments further intensified the drama. The match culminated in a penalty shoot-out, where England’s hopes were dashed when Paul Ince and David Batty missed their spot-kicks.

  1. England 4-2 West Germany (AET), July 1966

No list of entertaining England matches would be complete without the iconic 1966 World Cup final. England, under the guidance of Sir Alf Ramsey, employed an unconventional 4-3-3 formation. The match against West Germany proved to be a historic battle.

Despite conceding an early goal to Helmut Haller, England equalized through Geoff Hurst’s header. The game remained deadlocked at 2-2 after 90 minutes, leading to extra time.

Geoff Hurst famously scored a goal that deflected from the crossbar, securing his hat-trick and England’s first-ever World Cup victory. The image of Hurst celebrating remains etched in the annals of football history.

These are a selection of England’s most exciting football matches. Fans are happy to be England fans and anxiously await the next chapter in the team’s history after these amazing matches.





1.Dortmund Vs Werder Bremen – 1 (Friday)

Dortmund have won 4/5 last H2H meetings with Werder Bremen and the fixture being on Friday, A win for the Bavarians will see them top the league. I do see a comfortable win for Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park today

2.Parma Vs Como – Yes (Friday)

Parma currently leads the Italian Serie B league table as Como Calcio sits 6th. Both sides lost their last fixtures prior to the International break and I do see both going all out in this fixture to attain the 3 points. 3/5 of their last H2H meetings have seen goal-goal.

3.Liverpool Vs Everton – 1 (Saturday)

Liverpool are currently 4th placed and a win today will see them move to 20 points equivalent to log leaders Tottenham. It is a Merseyside derby in an early kick off however Everton is now struggling as they are currently 16th placed on the log. I do not see Liverpool failing to win this fixture after losing 5 points in their last 2 games before the International break.

4.Manchester City VS Brighton – O2.5 (Saturday)

Man City have lost both their last two EPL fixtures to Wolves and Arsenal. What a strange thing this is in a while! Here comes Brighton at Etihad stadium as the race for top spots continues. I do anticipate open end to end game as both sides almost have the similar systems and style of play. 4/5 last H2H made O2.5 goals

5.Chelsea Vs Arsenal – 2 (Saturday)

Chelsea are sitting in the bottom half of the table and as they host 2nd placed Arsenal at Stamford Bridge today. It’s of course the London derby but it is a bit one sided as the gunners are in top form. I do give all the 3 points to Arsenal following Chelsea’s struggles and rebuild process on going

6.Bodo/Glimit Vs Sandefjord – 1&O2.5 (Saturday)

Bodo/Gimit currently leads the Norwegian Eliteserien table and here comes 2nd last Sandefjord who have lost 4/4 last H2H with the host ¾ being O2.5 goals. Let us put our money on home win and O2.5

7.Verona Vs Napoli – 2 (Saturday)

What a big odd for Napoli win this is! 1.70 against a team that has not won a game in their last 5 fixtures is quite tempting. A win will see Napoli move up to 3rd spot on the log. Teka sente ku Napoli osilike blood

8.Barcelona Vs Ath. Bilbao– O2.5 (Sunday)

Barcelona are currently 3rd placed with 3 points behind log leaders Real Madrid and they host 5th placed Ath. Bilbao. All the last 3 H2H meetings were won by Barcelona however following recent injuries, I do see a turf game for Barcelona given they are not hosting the game at Camp Nou. Anticipating a freely flowing game with goals from both sides. Let us go for both teams to score – yes

9.Hadjuk Split Vs Osijek – 1 (Sunday)

Hadjuk are currently 2nd placed on the log trailing Rijeka with just a point as Osijek sits 5th. A win today will see the host top the Croatian top flight league if at all Rijeka does not win. Game being played at Stadion Poljud, I do see the hosts winning. 4/5 last H2H were won by Hadjuk Split

10.Olympiacos Vs Panathinaikos – U2.5 (Sunday)

At Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus, log leaders Olympiacos host 2nd placed Panathinaikos as the race for silverware continues. 3 points separate the 2 sides and I do expect a very tight game with both sides respecting each other as it has been in their last 4 H2H meetings. All their last 4 meetings have seen U2.5 goals. Let us put that money on U2.5

Your stake is refunded or multiplied up to 50X if you lose by only 1 game in GSB Uganda

Good Luck


London’s Football Landscape: From Premier League Giants to Lower League Gems

Exploring London's Football Landscape: From Premier League Giants to Lower League Gems

London's Football Landscape: From Premier League Giants to Lower League Gems

London, a city full of history and culture, is a must-visit destination for football enthusiasts. While it’s renowned for its iconic landmarks and rich heritage, London is also home to a vibrant football scene that’s as diverse as the city itself. In the 2023/24 season, a staggering 13 clubs based in London are participating in the English professional leagues, ranging from the illustrious Premier League to the gritty battles of League Two.

  1. The Premier League: London’s Heavyweights
  • Arsenal: The Gunners of North London

Let’s kick things off with a visit to the iconic Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal, one of London’s most storied clubs. Nestled in the northern part of the city, Arsenal’s modern arena replaced the legendary Highbury in 2006, which has since been transformed into residential condominiums.

  • Tottenham Hotspur: A Futuristic Haven

As we move across North London, we come across the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the new fortress of Tottenham Hotspur. This state-of-the-art stadium was built upon the hallowed grounds of White Hart Lane, showcasing the club’s commitment to excellence.

  • Chelsea: The Kings of Stamford Bridge

Stamford Bridge, located to the west of the city, is the home of Chelsea. Unlike some of their counterparts, Chelsea has stuck with their traditional stadium and stands as the only London club to clinch the coveted UEFA Champions League not just once but twice.

  • Fulham: The Riverside Retreat

A glance across the Thames reveals Craven Cottage, the beloved home ground of Fulham. Founded in 1879, Fulham was the first professional team to join the Football League.

  • Brentford: The Premier League Newcomers

Further west, we encounter Brentford, a club that recently made its Premier League debut. Their home matches are hosted at the Brentford Community Stadium, boasting 18,000 seats and ranking as the smallest facility among London’s top-flight teams.

  • West Ham United: From Boleyn Ground to Olympic Stadium

To the east of the city, West Ham United has had a rich history. They once graced the Boleyn Ground (also known as Upton Park), which was demolished in 2016. They’ve since moved even further east to the London Olympic Stadium, originally constructed for the 2012 Games and now their modern home.

  • Crystal Palace: Selhurst Park’s Royalty

In the southern outskirts of London lies Selhurst, home to Crystal Palace. The club derives its name from the Crystal Palace, built for the Great Exhibition of 1851. Their matches take place at Selhurst Park.

  1. The Championship: London’s Second Tier Representatives
  • Millwall: East London’s Grit

Representing the eastern part of the city in the Championship is Millwall, a historic rival of West Ham. Millwall’s matches unfold at The Den, which replaced the old Lions facility in 1993.

  • Queens Park Rangers: The Hoops’ Home

On the western front, Queens Park Rangers have made Loftus Road their sanctuary since 1917. Notably, their stadium was the first in British professional football to feature artificial turf, a pioneering move in 1981.

  1. League One: Third Tier Londoners
  • Charlton Athletic: Historic Triumphs

Moving down to League One, we find two more London clubs. Charlton Athletic, with a rich history, won the FA Cup back in 1947 and even secured second place in the old First Division during the 1936/37 season. Their home is The Valley, which was constructed in the 1920s and later underwent renovations.

  • Leyton Orient: A Rebirth

Leyton Orient, founded in 1881, has recently returned to the professional ranks after financial difficulties saw them exit the Football League. Their stadium, Brisbane Road, has stood for over 130 years since its construction in 1890.

  1. League Two: London’s Lower League Pioneers
  • AFC Wimbledon: Fan-Powered Revival

AFC Wimbledon, a club borne from the passion of old Wimbledon’s fans, found a home at Plow Lane, rebuilt on the site of its namesake. This is where the Crazy Gang famously conquered Liverpool in the FA Cup final in 1988.

  • Sutton United: The Newcomers

Sutton United is the latest addition to the Football League, joining in the 2021/22 season. Their modest Gander Green Lane stadium, with 5,000 seats, is the smallest among all London stadiums hosting the top four divisions.

Amidst this bustling football landscape, it’s fascinating to ponder how many London clubs have competed in the top-flight league simultaneously. The answer takes us back to the 1989/90 season when a staggering eight London clubs, constituting 40% of the participating teams, graced the First Division. The likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Wimbledon, Crystal Palace, Charlton, Millwall, and QPR vied for the title, with Liverpool eventually emerging as the victor.

In summary, London boasts a diverse and rich football heritage. Despite the abundance of football clubs in the city, the capital’s haul of top-tier titles might not be as extensive as one would expect. However, with 21 top-flight titles and 35 FA Cups among them, London clubs certainly make their presence felt on the national football stage. This goes to show that, in football, quality often trumps quantity.




champion of Champions League


1. Monchengladbach Vs Mainz – O2.5 (Friday)
Monchengladbach are currently 13th placed and here comes Mainz sitting bottom of the log as hosts at Borussia – Park. Both sides are really hungry to regain their form as both are performing poorly ever since the start of the new season. Both easily concede goals and being that they both need these 3 points, I do anticipate an end to end open game resulting into a minimum of 3 goals

2. Burnley Vs Chelsea – Yes (Saturday)
Both sides are yet to witness their best days this season as Chelsea sits 11th and Burnley 18th on the log. I do expect a lot of resistance from Vincent Kompany’s side who really won’t give respect to Chelsea that is not yet consistence. I do see at least a goal from both sides

3. Man United Vs Brentford – Yes (Saturday)
Man United are currently 10th placed a position which really frustrates every fan. This is bad however, according to how United plays, they are really not yet convincing and its hard to trust them not to concede a goal from a game. Against a rampant Brentford side that at least scores in each game and easily concedes, I do anticipate a minimum of one goal from each of the 2 sides

4. Reims Vs Monaco – O2.5 (Saturday)
Both sides have recorded Over 2.5 in 4/5 of their last fixtures this season. 3/5 of their last H2H saw U2.5 with 2 seeing Over 2.5 but following their goal scoring forms this season, I do see goals flocking from either side. Let us go for O2.5

5. Inter Vs Bologna – 1&O1.5 (Saturday)
Inter currently lead the Italian Serie A log as the race for Scudetto continues. Bologna sit th on the log as they pursue and continue their quest for European spots for next season. Inter have recorded two 6:1 correct scores against the guest in their last 5 H2H matches. Being at the San Siro, I second the favorites today to win. Inter nalo ajja kutegula kumpaka

6. Mallorca Vs Valencia – 1X (Saturday)
Mallorca are currently fighting relegation as the match day 9 clocks in in La Liga Santander. Mallorca defeated Valencia in both legs last season and being home, I do not see them succumbing to a loss today. The best Valencia will attain today is a draw.

7. Goias Vs Bahia – Yes (Saturday)
Here comes a relegation battle in the Brazillian Serie A as Goias host Bahia at Estadio de Serinnha. The hosts are 16th placed as Bahia sit 18th on the log. 5/5 of their last H2H meeting saw both sides score.

8. Brighton Vs Liverpool – O2.5 (Sunday)
Brighton are currently 6th placed as they host 4th placed Liverpool at Amex Stadium following both sides losing over the weekend. Liverpool controversially lost to Tottenham as their goal was ruled out due to VAR error so I do expect them to bounce back looking for 3 points today. Brighton also lost 6:1 and I do see them trying to avoid losing today following their fine form prior to the big loss. 4/5 last H2H meetings saw O2.5

9. Arsenal Vs Manchester City – O2.5 (Sunday)
Man City still leads the log with 18 points after losing to Wolves last weekend and I do see them trying to bounce back to their league winning ways. Arsenal sit 3rd and are still among the 2 clubs that are still unbeaten. Man City have won 5/5 last H2H league meetings with Arsenal but being at Emirates today, O2.5 will be the safest bet.

10. Atletico Madrid Vs Real Sociedad – Yes (Sunday)
Both sides are in great form and each of the 2 has not lost a game in their last 5 fixtures in all competitions. Both have won 4 and drawn just once which is really great form. I do expect an end to end game since both have at least scored a goal from each of their last 5 games in all competitions. Let us go for Both Teams to Score – YES


Top 10 Strongest National Football Teams in World Cup History


Top 10 Strongest National Football Teams in World Cup History

Top 10 Strongest National Football Teams in World Cup History

The next World Cup is just around the corner, scheduled to take place on the American continent in the summer of 2026. As football enthusiasts eagerly anticipate this event, it’s worth noting that it will be the 23rd edition in history, setting the stage for the centenary celebration in 2030.

While achieving a unanimous consensus on this topic may be a challenging endeavor, we have taken it upon ourselves to select and rank the 10 strongest national teams in the history of the World Cup.


  1. Hungary – 1954

In 1954, the World Cup was held in Switzerland, and it showcased one of the most formidable Hungarian teams ever seen. Led by the legendary Ferenc Puskás, this squad proved to be a force to be reckoned with. However, despite their incredible prowess, they suffered a heartbreaking loss in the Battle of Bern against Brazil and the Miracle of Bern, which ultimately marked the end of the Magyars’ era. Their undefeated streak of four years came to an end, denying them a sensational World Cup triumph.

  1. Brazil – 1958

The birth of Brazil’s World Cup myth can arguably be traced back to 1958. A young Pelé emerged as the star player who exorcised the demons of Brazil’s shocking defeat at home eight years prior. Alongside Vavá and Didí, Pelé shone brightly in Sweden, scoring in every match of the direct elimination phase.

  1. Brazil – 1970

Twelve years later, Brazil boasted even more talent. With Pelé leading the charge, the team included players like Gerson, Jairzinho, Rivelino, and Tostão. The Seleção dominated their group and outperformed everyone in the knockout phase, culminating in a victory over Italy in the final. It was the reign of O Rei, with Brazil winning their third World Cup in the previous four editions.

  1. Germany – 1974

The World Cup in 1974 raised the bar even higher, and some consider the German team of that year to be the strongest in history. Their claim to fame was defeating Johan Cruyff’s Holland. The squad featured talents like Breitner, Sepp Maier in goal, Uli Hoeness, Gerd Müller, and, most notably, Franz Beckenbauer, who lifted the Cup.

  1. Holland – 1974

The Netherlands significantly influenced modern football for both club and national teams, despite their inability to secure a World Cup victory. In the 1970s and 1980s, they reached two World Cup Finals but were unable to clinch the title. The first of these finals, in 1974, featured Johan Cruyff as their shining star.


  1. Argentina – 1986

The year 1986 marked the emergence of Diego Armando Maradona as the defining figure of the Argentina national team. Argentina had already triumphed eight years earlier, but Maradona’s incredible talent made him the face of the national team.

  1. France – 1998-00

Generations of young football fans have grown up with the notion of France being among the world’s strongest national teams. This reputation, however, primarily applies to the 21st century. In 1998, France became World Champions by defeating Ronaldo’s Brazil, and they repeated this feat two year later by winning the European Championship in a final against Italy.

  1. Spain – 2008-12

Many consider the Spain of 2008-2012 to be the strongest national team in history. Under the guidance of managers like Luis Aragonés and Vicente del Bosque, Spain secured two European Championships (in 2008 and 2012) and a World Cup victory in 2010. Their playing style, a perfect blend of Real Madrid and Barcelona, mirrored the strengths of the two strongest club teams in the world at the time.

  1. Germany – 2014

The 2014 World Cup will forever be etched in memory, especially for Brazil fans who experienced the humiliating defeat known as the “Mineirazo.” Germany, led by Joachim Löw, clinched a well-deserved victory against Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the final.

  1. Argentina – 2022

In a historic turn of events, Lionel Messi finally secured a World Cup victory, a feat many believed he needed to reach the level of Diego Maradona or surpass Cristiano Ronaldo. Messi’s remarkable performance in Qatar, characterized by goals, assists, and breathtaking plays, carried Argentina to victory after 36 years of longing.

As we eagerly await the upcoming World Cup in 2026, these 10 national teams stand as testaments to the rich history and legacy of the tournament, each contributing their unique chapters to the story of the World Cup.
