Germany is the national team that has lost the final of a World Cup several times. There are four defeats in the final for the Germans (1966, 1982, 1986 and 2002), who lead this particular ranking alone.

The designers of these dolls try to represent a typical topic of the host nation (culture, tradition, flora, fauna, etc.).
The mascots of the World Cup have children as target and often cartoons or various gadget are created to match this figure and the event in general.
Messi and Ronaldo are iconic. The pair of eternal rivals will compete in the fifth World Cup of their careers. Like them, six other players enter this particular record.
In addition to the two phenomena there are the German Matthaus, the Mexican Carbajal and the compatriot Rafa Marquez, Gigi Buffon, Guilleromo Ochoa, Andres Guardado.
Among these, Buffon did not play in all editions: in 1998 he was only called, but never took the field. The same goes for Ochoa, who never took the field in 2006 and 2010.
