The World Cup is a championship that has been going on for more than 100 years. It is the tournament of the best country soccer teams in the world.

In 2012 1,625 teams took part with a total of 35,000 players and officials involved.

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…

Many sports have European championships, so it is possible that you could mean different ones. The one for soccer is the biggest one, and features countries in Europe playing the sport.

In World Cup Qualifying, over 200 teams battle for 32 (minus one spot for the hosts) spots at the actual World Cup, also known as World Cup Finals.
