#1 – Brazil
Few people would against Brazil being the most successful team in World Cup history, or in fact the best football team ever. Their record speaks for itself: they have reached the World cup semi-finals ten times and have won the tournament more than any other team; five times in the years of 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002. Their 1970 World Cup winning team is widely considered to be the best team of all time and included the players Jairzinho, Tostao, Rivelino, Carlos Alberto and the legendary Pelé. They are the hosts this year and naturally, one of the hot favourites.
Most Capped Player: Cafu, 142 (1990 – 2006)
Top Goal Scorer: Pelé, 77 (1957 – 1971)
