Can you name every country to compete at a FIFA World Cup?
Eighty different teams have made the World Cup finals at least once – but how many of them can you name?
Seeing as we’re nice people, we’ve given you 30 minutes to see, with the number of appearances each nation has made given as a clue.
We’re sure you’ll get all the historical footballing powerhouses towards the top of the list, but things get seriously tricky when you get towards the bottom and the nations that have only made one or two appearances.
This is going back to the first staging of the tournament all the way back in 1930, having originally been devised by former FIFA president Jules Rimet.
It was mainly a European and South American tournament for the first 50 years but the expansion to 24 teams in 1982, followed by another expansion to 32 in 1998, really opened up the tournament to the whole world.
If this gives you a taste for another challenge, and why wouldn’t it, why not try and name the top goalscorers in the history of the World Cup?
Note: this list and the total number of appearances is up to and including the 2022 World Cup – and its controversial hosts – as the tournament moves ever closer.
