From Academic Kids

Template:National football team The Brazilian national football team is the most successful national football team with five FIFA World Cup victories including the most recent tournament in 2002. Brazil is the only nation to have qualified for every World Cup.

Brazil finished second in the 1950 World Cup, losing the deciding group match to Uruguay in a great match that was seen by 200,000 people in Maracan, Rio de Janeiro. It was also the first and only time that Brazil have hosted a World Cup.

In the 1958 World Cup, Brazil won its first World Cup title, defeating the host Sweden in the final by 5-2. In the 1962 World Cup Garrincha and his mates went to Chile and won the second world title.

Brazil won its third World Cup in Mexico in 1970. Brazil fielded what has been considered to be the best soccer squad ever with Pel, in his last World Cup finals, Carlos Alberto, Jairzinho, Tosto and Rivelino. After winning the Jules Rimet Trophy for the third time Brazil was allowed to keep it for good.

Only in the 1994 World Cup, 24 years after Brazil's third World Cup win, were they able to win another title. The struggles ended in World Cup USA with a final against 1970 opponent Italy. The score at the end of the final match was 0-0 so Brazil and Italy competed in the first penalty shoot out for a World Cup in the history of the tournament. After finishing as runner-up in the 1998 World Cup Brazil won its fifth championship at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. The final game was between the two best teams in football-history: Germany and Brazil.

Brazil won the Confederations Cup in 1997. Although they have never won the Gold Medal at the Olympic Games, they did win two Silvers (1984, 1988) and a Bronze (1996).
