Just about every country in the world plays soccer. FIFA, the international governing body, has 209 members. Teams from around the world take 2 years to play the World Cup, from the qualifying stages, to decide which 32 countries make it to the finals, through to the finals themselves. It is not just those 32 countries that play soccer. The World Cup finals is the high point in international soccer, and happens every four years, having taken the two previous years to decide who qualifies. In addition, there are many other international tournaments. So it is the most international sport in the world and the World Cup is the biggest single sport world championship of all sports.
