The World Cup is a tournament held every four years where countries across the world play to win the World Cup and the tournament. In 1942 and 1946 it wasn't held due to World War II, however in 1946 it is strange it wasn't held because the war was finished.

HistoryEdit

It first started by FIFA in 1930 in Uruguay. The first few World Cups until the fifties were played by few teams due to the large cost of travel to the areas. In the fifties, more countries started to compete. In 1970, after Brazil's third World Cup win, they were allowed to keep the cup, but the cup was stolen in 1983 by robbers, and was never recovered, and is thought to have been melted by them.
