Soccer (Futbol)

Brazil is the most successful team in FIFA World Cup history. Brazil soccer history dates back to the end of the nineteenth century. There are few versions regarding the origin of soccer in Brazil. Some favor the version that Brazil soccer history started with the landing of the British and Dutch sailors in the land of Brazil in the second half of the nineteenth century. Football is the most popular sport in Brazil. The Brazilian national football team has won the FIFA World Cup tournament a record 5 times, in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002,[1] and is the only team to succeed in qualifying for every World Cup competition ever held. It is among the favourites to win the trophy every time the competition is scheduled. After Brazil won its 3rd World Cup in 1970, they were awarded the Jules Rimet Trophy permanently.
Nigeria’s Junior Eagles qualified for the first time to represent Africa in a Junior World Cup in Mexico. Although, Nigeria did not go beyond the first round having lost 0-3 to Brazil she beat highly rated USSR 1-0 and held Netherlands to a goalless draw.
In 1985, Nigeria’s under-17 football team went to China and conquered the world in the first ever FIFA under-17 World Cup. The victory took Nigerian football to a high pedestal, setting the stage for a respect of Nigeria in international competitions. To prove a point of Nigeria’s new found strength in football, the Nations under-21 team went to Saudi Arabia for the World Cup in 1989 and lost narrowly in the final to Portugal. The “miracle of Damman”, Nigeria’s victory over USSR after trailing four goals behind and with only twenty- five minutes left, stunned the world during the championship.
