History of the World Cup
England: After playing their hearts out in 1966 England finally won the World Cup on home turf. Then came the disastrous performance of the subsequent teams especially the 2010 and the 2014 squads
There was also The first official international football match ever to be played.
It was contested by the national teams from Scotland and England. The match took place on 30 November 1872 in Partrick Scotland. This match finished in a 0–0 draw.
The United States: Achieved their best result when they reached the semi final in 1930 and after qualifying in 1934 and withdrawing in 1938 their next World Cup appearance came in 1990.
Scotland: Have played in the World Cup eight times however they have never advanced beyond the first round.
Canada: Has qualified for the World Cup only once, in Mexico in 1986.
Norway: Qualified for the 1938 World Cup where they lost 2–1 to Italy. This turned out to be Norway's last World Cup finals appearance in 56 years.
Disgusted by these performances The Las Vegas Knights World Cup of Golf was created in 2011.
