Brazil have made it to 16 World Cup Finals.

The Brazilians have won the cup on four of those occasions: 1958, 1962, 1970, and 1994 -- they are the current holders.

Brazil have staged the World Cup only once; way back in 1950, when they were runners-up to Uruguay.

Brazil became the only country to win the World Cup four times when they beat Italy in the United States last time around. They are also the only country to have taken part in every World Cup finals.

Their fans also take samba to the world with every match they attend. Intoxicating ensemble.

Always the team to beat.

Brazil the country.
