1930 - Uruguay
Hosts Uruguay beat arch-rivals to first world crown
Winner: Uruguay
FIFA President Jules Rimet’s dream was realised as Uruguay
hosted the inaugural FIFA World Cup in its centenary year.
Only four European teams made the long sea journey and
the Final was an all-South American affair, with Uruguay
beating neighbours Argentina just as they had done in the
1928 Olympic final. Trailing at half-time, the hosts triumphed
4-2 in the newly built Estadio Centenario to become football’s
first world champions.
1934 - Italy
Delight for the Azzurri as home advantage tells
Winner: Italy
FIFA President Jules Rimet’s dream was realised as Uruguay
hosted the inaugural FIFA World Cup in its centenary year.
Only four European teams made the long sea journey and
the Final was an all-South American affair, with Uruguay
beating neighbours Argentina just as they had done in the
1928 Olympic final. Trailing at half-time, the hosts triumphed
4-2 in the newly built Estadio Centenario to become football’s
first world champions.
1938 - France
Pozzo the mastermind as Italy retain their crown
Winner: Italy
Italy trainer Vittorio Pozzo made history by capturing a
second successive title with a rebuilt team. With Silvio Piola’s
goals and Giuseppe Meazza’s leadership, Italy beat Hungary
in the Final having overcome in the semi-final a Brazil side
missing top scorer Leonidas. Three of his strikes came in a
6-5 victory over Poland – the best match of a tournament
notable for political tensions and the absence of some
leading teams.football’s first world champions.World

1950 - Brazil
Uruguay triumph brings heartbreak for Brazil
Winner: Uruguay
Brazil’s determination to put on a show meant they built the
world’s biggest football stadium, the Maracana, for the 1950
FIFA World Cup™. Yet their dream of becoming the world’s
best died in that huge bowl, Uruguay capturing their second
crown by beating the hosts in front of some 200,000 stunned
spectators. It was not the only shock of a tournament where
debutants England were humbled by the United States.
1954 - Switzerland
Hurt for Hungary as Germans achieve a miracle
Winner: Germany
West Germany were surprise winners of the 1954 FIFA World
Cup™, coming from two goals down to defeat Hungary in a
Final forever remembered as the ‘Miracle of Berne’. Hungary
were unbeaten in 31 matches and scored 25 goals en route
to the Final – eight of them against the Germans in the first
round. Yet it was Fritz Walter, not Ferenc Puskas who picked
up the Jules Rimet Cup.
1958 - Sweden
A star is born as Brazil are champions at last
Winner: Brazil
Brazil’s love affair with the FIFA World Cup™ began in earnest
as they won the world title for the first time. A 17-year-old
Pele introduced his prodigious skills to the world in Sweden,
epitomising the Brazilians’ attacking flair and scoring six
goals – two of them in the Final against the hosts. Thirdplaced France caught the eye too with Just Fontaine striking
a record 13 goals.

1962 - Chile
Brazil flying high with ‘Little Bird’ Garrincha
Winner: Brazil
Brazil were worthy winners, beating Czechoslovakia in the
Final to retain their crown in a tournament that showcased
the sublime skills of Garrincha. With Pele injured, Garrincha
ensured his colleague’s absence was not felt, inspiring
the Seleção to victory and finishing joint-top scorer in the
process. This FIFA World Cup featured plenty else, including
new 4-3-3 tactics and the infamous ‘Battle of Santiago’
between hosts Chile and Italy.
1966 - England
Hurst the hero for England in the home of football
Winner: England
The country that invented football, England, finally found
a formula for success on the world stage. Alf Ramsey’s
‘Wingless wonders’ overcame Final opponents West
Germany thanks to Geoff Hurst’s historic hat-trick, though
the debate over whether his middle strike crossed the line
continues to this day. Eusebio was another scoring hero, his
nine goals – four of them against Italy’s surprise conquerors,
Korea DPR – taking Portugal to third place.
1970 - Mexico
Mexico in thrall to Brazilians’ beautiful game
Winner: Brazil
For the first time the FIFA World Cup™ was broadcast in
colour and nothing could match the brilliance of Brazil’s
yellow shirts. With Pele rejuvenated and Jairzinho scoring
in every game, Mario Zagallo’s men were unstoppable –
they beat Italy handsomely in the Final and, with this third
triumph, retained the Jules Rimet Cup. If Brazil’s tournament,
others brought plenty to the party – not least ten-goal
German marksman Gerd Muller.

1974 - W. Germany
Dutch take plaudits but Germany take the prize
Winner: Germany
West Germany were champions on home soil - and as in
1954 their victory came at the expense of a team widely
considered the world’s finest. Johan Cruyff’s Netherlands
were favourites before the Final but the hosts, beaten earlier
in their competition by their East German neighbours,
recovered from a first-minute Dutch goal to win. It was also a
memorable tournament for Poland whom Gregorz Lato fired
to third place.
1978 - Argentina
Kempes key as Argentina are crowned with confetti
Winner: Argentina
Hosts Argentina captured their first world title as the
Netherlands suffered Final heartache for the second
tournament running. Mario Kempes sealed Cesar Luis
Menotti’s side’s triumph, scoring twice against the Dutch in
the confetti-strewn cauldron of the Estadio Monumental to
earn himself additional acclaim as top scorer. Brazil, denied a
Final place by Argentina’s 6-0 win over Peru, took third place
from an enterprising Italy side.
1982 - Spain
Brazil shine but Rossi strikes Spanish gold for Italy
Winner: Italy
Paolo Rossi was the hero in Spain, his six goals propelling
Italy to a third world crown. The Azzurri ran out 3-1 Final
winners against a German team who had survived the
competition’s first penalty shoot-out in a dramatic semi-final
against France. If Italy won gold, Brazil took a share of the
glory for some scintillating football before succumbing to
Rossi’s hat-trick in the best game of this first 24-team finals.

1986 - Mexico
Maradona lights up the world – with a helping hand
Winner: Argentina
The FIFA World Cup™ returned to Mexico for a tournament
marked by the mastery of Diego Maradona. Argentina
overcame West Germany in an exciting Final but the defining
match was a quarter-final against England featuring two of
history’s most famous goals: the ‘Hand of God’ followed by
the dribble of a genius. Michel Platini’s France again lost out
in the semi-finals before beating surprise package Belgium
to third place.
1990 - Italy
Germany hit winning note as Italian chorus fades
Winner: Germany
When Lothar Matthaus lifted the FIFA World Cup for Germany,
it was an undoubted triumph for Franz Beckenbauer, who
became only the second winner of the trophy as both player
and coach. If low on goals, Italy 1990 was certainly high on
drama – from the feats of Italy’s top scorer Toto Schillaci via
the tears of England’s Paul Gascoigne to the historic run of
Roger Milla’s Cameroon to the quarter-finals.
1994 - USA
Brazil back on top in football’s final frontier
Winner: Brazil
The United States staged a hugely successful 15th FIFA
World Cup that became the best attended in history and
ended with Brazil celebrating their first world title since
1970. Forwards Romario and Bebeto were the Brazilians’ star
performers while Roberto Baggio shone equally brightly for
Italy despite his penalty miss that concluded the first ever
Final shoot-out. While Sweden finished third, the undoubted
surprise package were their fellow semi-finalists Bulgaria.

1998 - France
Zidane lights the blue-touch paper for France
Winner: France
The home of tournament founder Jules Rimet, France
enjoyed an unforgettable summer as its footballers finally
tasted FIFA World Cup glory, Zinedine Zidane leading Les
Bleus to victory over Brazil in the Final. France 98 was the
first finals with an enlarged cast of 32 teams and among the
newcomers were a Croatia side who, fired by the goals of top
scorer Davor Suker, confounded expectations by finishing
third.
2002 - Korea - Japan
Redemption for Ronaldo as world’s eyes turn east
Winner: Brazil
Brazil became champions for the fifth time as top scorer
Ronaldo exorcised the ghosts of 1998, scoring both goals
in the Final against Germany. This was Asia’s first FIFA World
Cup™ and both host nations made history by reaching the
knockout rounds – Korea Republic going as far as the last
four. A tournament of surprises, it opened with France losing
to Senegal and closed with Turkey third in the world.
2006 - Germany
Brazil shine but Rossi strikes Spanish gold for Italy
Winner: Italy
Paolo Rossi was the hero in Spain, his six goals propelling
Italy to a third world crown. The Azzurri ran out 3-1 Final
winners against a German team who had survived the
competition’s first penalty shoot-out in a dramatic semi-final
against France. If Italy won gold, Brazil took a share of the
glory for some scintillating football before succumbing to
Rossi’s hat-trick in the best game of this first 24-team finals.

2010 - South Africa
Pride for Africa as Spain strike gold
Winner: Spain
The 19th FIFA World Cup ended with a first triumph for Spain
but the host nation had equal reason to celebrate.

19 Appearances - 5 Titles
BRAZIL
The key players: Striker Neymar is already being hailed as a man
capable of playing a key role for the five-time world champions come
Brazil 2014. Currently among the supporting cast in attack is the
youngster’s former Santos team-mate Robinho, while Barcelona’s Dani
Alves is a lung-bursting presence on the flank. Between the sticks,
veteran goalkeeper Julio Cesar exudes confidence and security to the
rest of the backline.
Coach: Luiz Felipe Scolari
Former stars: Garrincha, Pele, Ronaldo
35
ENGLAND
13 Appearances - 1 Title
The key players: Wayne Rooney remains England’s greatest talent
and his seven goals in six World Cup qualifying starts underlined his
importance to Roy Hodgson’s side. In midfield, Gerrard and Frank
Lampard provide experience and creativity while young guns Jack
Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Andros Townsend highlight
the Three Lions’ attacking flair for the future. Danny Welbeck came
into his own during qualification, scoring four goals on the way to the
finals, while Daniel Sturridge’s emergence as one of the English Premier
League’s top forwards can only bolster Roy Hodgson’s attacking options
for Brazil.
Coach: Roy Hodgson
Former stars: Sir Bobby Charlton, Peter Shilton, Gary Lineker
36
ITALY
17 Appearances - 4 Titles
The key players: Captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is the only
survivor from their 2006 triumph in Germany along with Andrea Pirlo,
while a host of youngsters have broken into the team, such as central
defender Andrea Ranocchia and midfielder Marco Verratti. Up front, the
transition from old to new has been even more dramatic thanks to the
emergence of Stephan El Shaarawy and Giuseppe Rossi’s return to the
fore. Also with a vital role to play are the maverick duo of Mario Balotelli
and Pablo Osvaldo.
Coach: Cesare Prandelli
Former stars: Dino Zoff, Paolo Maldini, Silvio Piola
37
SPAIN
13 Appearances - 1 Titles
The key players: Though there is no doubt that Spain’s embarrassment
of midfield riches, featuring the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Xabi
Alonso, has been integral to their major trophy triumphs, La Selección
are strong across the board.
The men in red have a phalanx of very reliable keepers to call on,
headed by Iker Casillas, while Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique have
consolidated their positions as the leaders of a defence in which leftback Jordi Alba has gone from strength to strength. Ramos and Alba
are also a threat in the opposing box, and in recent times have made
goalscoring contributions that have been almost as decisive as those of
the front men.
With both David Villa and Fernando Torres struggling to find their
touch, Pedro has distinguished himself as an attacking spearhead, ably
supported by Cesc Fabregas, while Alvaro Negredo has begun to stake
a compelling claim of his own for the striking role.
Coach: Vicente del Bosque
Former stars: Luis Suarez, Emilio Butragueno, Fernando Hierro
38
GERMANY
17 Appearances - 3 Titles
The key players: Keeper Manuel Neuer is the undisputed No1, while
many experts believe he is the real deal, equipped not only to follow
in the footsteps of Oliver Kahn and Jens Lehmann, but also to develop
into one of the best in the world. Full-back Philipp Lahm and schemer
Bastian Schweinsteiger earned their international spurs long ago: each
has reached 100 caps but is still at their peak.
The next generation appears immensely promising too. Former Real
Madrid starlet Mesut Ozil, who now laces his boots at Arsenal was just 21
when he thrilled the crowds at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and is a gifted
creative player with passing ability to match the best in the world. Up
front, Thomas Muller won the adidas Golden Boot and was named Best
Young Player at the 2010 finals, while youngsters Marco Reus, Andre
Schurrle, Toni Kroos and Mario Gotze keep getting better and better .
Coach: Joachim Low
Former stars: Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Lothar Matthaus
39
ARGENTINA
15 Appearances - 2 Titles
The key players: With the landmark achievement of claiming
four consecutive FIFA Ballon d’Ors (2009-2012), Lionel Messi in the
undisputed leader of the Argentina national team and a multiple-trophy
winner with Barcelona. Breaking all kind of goal-records, La Pulga is now
looking to achieve greatness with his country after failing, somewhat
surprisingly, to find the back of the net at South Africa 2010. Supporting
him will be an all-star cast featuring Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano and
Angel Di Maria, all of them on top of their game with some of Europe’s
leading clubs.
Coach: Alejandro Sabella
Former stars: Daniel Passarella, Diego Maradona, Gabriel Batistuta,
Mario Kempes

FIFA World Cup Mascot
42
Each FIFA World Cup since 1966 has its own mascot. World Cup Willie, the mascot for the
1966 competition, was the first World Cup mascot, and one of the first mascots to be
associated with a major sporting competition.
Fuleco the Armadillo
43
Is the official mascot of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. It is a Brazilian
three-banded armadillo, a species of armadillo which is native to Brazil
and categorized as a vulnerable species on the IUCN Red List, it was
officially launched as part of Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo’s weekly
Fantástico entertainment show on 25 November 2012. He is a likeable
character - he scores 7.3 out of 10 on appeal. Research has revealed
that he is seen as an appealing character widely thought to represent
the words, ‘Brazil’, ‘Nature’, ‘Friendly’ and ‘Passion for Football’. It is a
portmanteau of the words Futebol (football) and Ecologia (Ecology). The
name Fuleco was chosen over the names Amijubi (Amizade - Friendship
and Júbilo - Joy) and Zuzeco (Azul - Blue and Ecologia - Ecology) by
more than 1.7 million football fans. The mascot, with its message of
environmental concerns, the ecology and the sport turned out to be
very popular with football teams around the world.
Fuleco’s awareness is growing all over the world. He has been
representing Brazil by visiting international tourism fairs and other
sports, cultural and entertainment events in all continents, while also
travelling along with the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola.
Fuleco has kept a similar tight schedule in Brazil visiting the Host Cities
and schools, and his popularity in the country is shown through the
hundreds of thousands of people, predominantly Brazilian, interacting
with him on Facebook; the awareness of the Official Mascot in the Host
country is at unprecedented levels.

Top Tourist Attractions in Brazil
54
Sprawling across half of South America, Brazil is the fifth largest
country in the world. White-sand beaches, tropical islands, music-filled
metropolises and charming colonial towns are dotting its 7,500 km
(4,600 mi) long coastline. Inland, Brazil tourist attractions consist of
imposing waterfalls, wetlands filled with wildlife, and the untouched
wilderness of the Amazon rainforest where several isolated tribes still
live without any contact with the rest of the world.
The top tourist attractions in Brazil:
Ouro Preto
One of Brazil’s best-preserved colonial towns, Ouro Preto, meaning
“black gold”, was
founded at the end
of the 17th century.
It quickly became the
epicenter of a new
gold rush in the state
of Minas Gerais. The
city contains well
preserved Portuguese
colonial architecture,
while modern buildings
must adhere to historical standards maintained by the city. 18thand 19th-century churches decorated with gold and the sculptured
works of Aleijadinho make Ouro Preto one of the most popular tourist
attractions in Brazil.
Teatro Amazonas
Teatro Amazonas or Amazon Theatre is an opera house located in
Manaus, in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. It was built during the
heyday of rubber trade using materials from all over the world, with
furniture from Paris, marble from Italy, and steel from England. On the
55
outside of the building,
the dome was covered
with 36,000 decorated
ceramic tiles painted in the
colors of the Brazilian
national flag.
The first performance
was given on January
7, 1897, with the Italian
opera La Gioconda. The
opera house was closed down soon after however as the rubber trade
declined and Manaus lost its main source of income. There wasn’t a
single performance in Teatro Amazonas for 90 years until 1990 when it
reopened its doors.
Fernando de Noronha
Fernando de Noronha is a
beautiful archipelago with
pristine beaches, landscapes
and wildlife, situated 354 km
(220 miles) off the northeastern
coast in Brazil. The archipelago
was discovered by Amerigo
Vespucci in 1503 and
temporarily occupied by the
Dutch and French before
Portugal established dominion
in 1737. Today only the largest
of the 21 islands is inhabited
with a population of about
3,500. The islands are a Mecca
for divers and snorkelers with warm waters year-round and very good
visibility even at depths of 50 meters.
56
Historic Center of Olinda
Another well preserved
colonial city, Olinda is
located on the Brazil’s
northeastern coast, just
north of Recife. Olinda
features a number of
major touristic
attractions, such as a
historic downtown
area, churches, and the
famous Carnival of
Olinda. Many bars, restaurants, artist and craftspeople studios add
charm to the old-town setting.
Pantanal
The Pantanal is the world’s largest wetland, lying mostly in Western
Brazil but extending into Bolivia and Paraguay as well. Famous for
its wildlife, it is one of
Brazil’s major tourist
attractions. Unlike the
Amazon rainforest, in
the Pantanal you are
virtually guaranteed to
actually see the wildlife.
Capybara and the
Yacare Caiman are
present in the millions.
The Pantanal is also
home to one of the largest Jaguar populations in the Americas.
Rio Carnival
There are carnival celebrations in virtually every corner of Brazil, the
best-known ones taking place in Recife together with the neighboring
Olinda and Salvador. But the biggest and most famous carnival is
57
undoubtedly the
Carnival in Rio de
Janeiro. The Rio
Carnival attracts two
million people per day
on the streets and
almost half a million
foreigners during its 4
day celebration. The
Carnival is all over the
place, in the streets and
squares, bars, clubs and all other venues in Rio, concluding in the
spectacular Rio Samba Parade at the Sambadrome.
Amazon River
At approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles) the Amazon River is the
second longest river in
the world, just slightly
shorter than the Nile,
and the largest river by
volume. The Amazon
has over 3,000
recognized species of
fish and new species
are still being
discovered. The
Amazon Basin is
covered by half of the planet’s remaining rainforests. Although a tenth
of the world’s estimated 10 million living species live in the Amazon
rainforest, jungle tours are more about the boating upriver into the
damp, buzzing, oppressive ambience than actually spotting animals.
Iguazu Falls
One of the great natural wonders of the world, Iguaçu Falls is situated
on the border between Brazil and Argentina. The waterfall system
58
consists of 275 falls
along the Iguazu River.
The most impressive of
them all is the Devil’s
Throat a U-shaped with
a height of 82 meter
(269 ft). The falls can be
reached from the cities
Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil
and Puerto Iguazú in
Argentina, as well as
from Ciudad del Este in Paraguay. On the Brazilian side there is a long
walkway along the canyon with an extension to the lower base of the
Devil’s Throat.
Christ the Redeemer
Christ the Redeemer is the famous statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de
Janeiro. Located at the peak of the 700 meters (2,300 ft) Corcovado
mountain, it provides a sweeping panorama from the interior of
Guanabara bay to the north, to Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas to the south.
The Christ the Redeemer statue stands 39.6 meters (130 ft) tall,
including its 9.5 meters (31 ft) pedestal and has become an icon of Rio
and Brazil.

SPECIAL
SWISS MUSHROOM BURGER
INGREDIENTS
1 Pound Ground Beef
1 Ounce package of Dried Mushrooms
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
1/2 Pound fresh Shiitake Mushrooms
1 Large Onion, Sliced thin (about 2 cups)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt
4-6 Slices of Swiss cheese
Burger Buns
1- Process the dried mushrooms in a food processor, or a clean coffee grinder (grind some raw rice to clean out
coffee grinds), until ground into a powder. Remove any large mushroom pieces that didn’t grind down, a few small
pieces will be fine.
2- In a large bowl, use your clean hands to gently mix together the meat, salt, mushroom powder, black pepper
and Worcestershire sauce. Mix just until everything is mostly combined, a minute or two. Do not overwork the meat
mixture or it will become tough and meatloaf-like. shape the meat into 3-4 patties, using about a quarter to a third
of a pound per patty, creating a slight indentation at the centers of the patties (this will help keep the patties fairly
flat when they cook, as the sides tend to contract more that the center).
3- Prepare your grill for high, direct heat. While the grill is heating up, heat a large saute pan over high heat for 1
minute. Add the mushrooms and dry-saute them until they release their water, about 2-3 minutes. Add the onions
and the live oil, toss to combine and continue to saute over high heat 1 minute. Add salt to taste and cook until the
onions soften and begin to brown. Turn off the heat and place in a bowl.
4- Grill the burgers to the desired doneness, between 5-8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the
burgers and how hot your grill is.
