South American National Teams at the World Cup
Whether you are supporting your home nation, or showing support for your favourite football player choosing to cheer on a South American team will always ensure excitement during every football tournament. But, it is not only at the World Cup that the talented footballers don their national team jerseys. There is also the qualifying tournament, which is viewed as the hardest of any of the FIFA confederations. Looking through the historic data from previous World Cup tournaments we can see that the following South American football teams have won the games valiantly:
- Brazil – 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002
- Uruguay – 1930, 1950
- Argentina – 1978, 1986
The ten members of CONMEBOL are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Of twenty World Cup tournaments to date the trophy has been awarded to a South American national team on nine occasions. Brazil can lay claim to being the most successful nation with 5 trophies to date, Argentina and Uruguay have two each.
Other South American Team Tournaments
The CONMEBOL tournament is the Copa America. Initially participation at the Copa America was only for South American nations, but it has now expanded to include some North American and Asian teams. Copa America is a long running, prestigious tournament, and one of the most watched throughout the world. Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil are the most successful Copa America countries with 15, 14 and 8 titles respectively. Despite entrants from other confederations the only countries to win the Copa America all hail from CONMEBOL.
A relatively young tournament which the South America national teams take part in is called the FIFA Confederations Cup. This was established in 1992 and the first ever games were hosted in Saudi Arabia. Reviewing the previous fixtures, the FIFA Confederations Cup was scheduled every 2 years; however as of 2005 they spaced it out further to every 4 years. The CONMEBOL squads have done excessively well within this tournament and have won the 1st place trophy 5 times between them. Below is a breakdown of the dates in which these have been acquired:
- Brazil – 1997, 2005, 2009, 2013
- Argentina -1992
South American Customized Jersey with Key Players’ Printing
Many of the members of CONMEBOL can also lay claim to producing some of the best football players in the history of the game. Obviously Argentinean forward Lionel Messi springs to mind, and orders of Messi 10 emblazoned Argentina shirts are popular around the globe, and every year not just when the World Cup rolls around every four years.
Of course other names have ingrained the history of the game from Pele to Diego Maradona, Carlos Tevez to Neymar Jr. South America seems the place to look for exciting talent on the football field, and support for these player’s national teams spans the globe.
We stock jerseys for many of the CONMEBOL member nations. Brazil and Argentina are most popular, but Luis Suarez’ skill at Camp Nou is increasing demand for the Uruguay shirt.
