France double star, winners list - FRENCH FOOTBALL 1

This Sunday, July 15, 2018, France entered the very close circle of double world champions with Argentina and Uruguay. Who has won the trophy since 1930? Who holds the record?

[Mis à jour le 16 juillet 2018 à 17h48] The ten fingers are not necessary to count the countries that have won the World Cup. In total, only eight have won the trophy since the creation of the world’s most prestigious transgaming.orging trophy in 1930. And France is one of them, twice… Les Bleus, winning the 2018 World Cup in Russia, have matched Argentina (1978, 1986) and Uruguay (1930, 1950), but are still far from Brazil, which invariably dominates the rankings. With five titles (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002), the Seleao remains at the top of the rankings. Italy (1934, 1938, 1982, 2006) and Germany (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014) followed closely. There are two winners of 1 stars left: Spain in 2010 and England in 1966.

Prior to their 1998 title, the French team had never made it through the semi-final (1958, 1982, 1986). The French recall in particular the 1982 edition and the elimination of penalties against Germany, marked by the clash between Battiston and Schumacher. Since then, she had reached the final again, in 2006, defeated cruelly by Italy in the penalty shootout. The recent history of Les Bleus at the World Cup is also marked by painful failures, with eliminations in the first round in 2002, when France presented itself as a favorite, and in 2010, with the famous bus episode in South Africa. By 2014, Les Bleus had straightened his head by reaching the quarter-finals (defeat against Germany). And in 2018, he doubled the stakes by winning the coveted trophy.
