Can Europe be beaten in Europe???
Posted by Sankar on July 1, 2006
Off the 17 FIFA world cups held so far (excluding the 2006 edition), 9 have been hosted in Europe. Off these 9 world cups, 8 have been won by an European team. Brazil is the only Non-European team to have won in Europe and that was in 1958.
Well… This year too, the last eight had 6 European teams and 2 non-European teams (Brazil and Argentina). Argentina lost yesterday… Brazil is playing France today… Can Brazil hold it this time… We will have to wait and see if Brazil can repeat the feat of 1958.
