    The FIFA World Cup is the most prestigious football, or soccer, tournament on Earth.
    Bringing together the best footballers from across the globe for a month long festival of football, there's nothing quite like the World Cup when it comes to producing drama, upsets, and some truly shocking moments.
    From the success of the United States at the very first World Cup in Uruguay in 1930, to the failure of Germany at the most recent World Cup in Russia in 2018, HITC Sevens takes a look at one surprising moment from every one of the 21 editions of the FIFA World Cup.

I'm pretty sure the England national Team were NOT know as the three lions until recently; The song in 1996 may have started the idea but I don't remember it being taken up as a semi-official nicknane until well into the 21st century.. Before the it was just what was on the badge so, no the 'Three lions' did not lose to the USA in 1950

Well beaten by france? Somebody must not have watched the game. Either that or not familiar with the ruling system as both the free kick and the penalty were more than just slightly questionable. I mean respect to a strong af french team,but with the run croatia was on it wasn't impossible to win even that game,if not at least clutch another extra time had the referee just called the game down the middle. Also save yourself any "uh you're just butthurt" comments. I'm not,Im genuenly proud of our team. It would have just felt better to lose without any shenanigans .

1994 should definitely have been Bulgaria as an entry. Cinderella story of a victory over France (in Paris) in extra time to qualify and then reach the semis over the corpse of the world champion and having been cheated out of a penalty against Italy... All that from a country that never won a world cup game in its history up to that point.

Here's a topic: How France bought 2 WC titles. Do you kniw that a major Tshirt manufa turer made 25 mil France shirts with 2 stars before the 2018 Wc final was played? How about the book of the French physio that details how they doped the 1998 team before the cup? Or how the Brasilians where poisoned by food before the game? Or How france never won a single title in a major sport without contraversy? Cheaters. I wish they cut the grass nicely on Chan se lise....to prepare it for the Germans to march in next time they invade

The biggest surprise of the 1st world cup was Yugoslavia beating Brazil who were one of the favourites to win it! There's 2 Serbian films called Montevideo Bog Te & Montevideo Vidimo Se which is about the struggle of Yugoslavia team just to get to the 1st wc & how they did in the 1st wc. I understand why u put USA instead because if i didn't know i would of done the same!

Para los que hablan en español. En el caso de Estados Unidos, si uno lo analiza de forma exhaustiva, no fue algo tan "sorprendente". En esos años (1930-1950), la mayoría de las ligas eran amateurs y además, las condiciones que la F.I.F.A. pedía para el reconocimiento de las nacionalidades era bastante flexible. Estados Unidos fue tanto en el Mundial de 1930 como de 1950 con muchos ex-jugadores profesionales británicos y europeos. Por ejemplo Gaejts, quien convirtió el gol a Inglaterra en el Mundial de 1950 ni siquiera era ciudadano norteamericano. Saludos desde Uruguay.

So, in 94 Saudi Arabia was a bigger surprise than Bulgaria knocking out the world champs Germany, and getting to the semis? Bulgaria were seeded 31st out of 32 teams in the WC, and had never won a game at a WC, but the Saudis reaching the round of 16, is somehow more surprising

I'm surprised that Bulgaria's 4th position in 1994 wasn't mentioned. By that time, Bulgaria had never won a world cup game, and during their USA march, defeated teams like Argentina, Mexico and most notably - the reigning world champion of Germany in the quarter finals. And I still remember Costacurta's handball in the penalty not being noticed by the referee during the lost semifinal against Italy.

I will never understand why people consider Uruguay beating Brazil on the 1950 "final" a shock. Up to 1954 Uruguay had NEVER lost a game on a world cup nor Olympic games. We participated on 1924/1928 wining both times gold medals, 1930 winning world championship. Brazil up to 1950 had won only 3 times the Copa America (continental tournament) and Uruguay had already won 8 times. So.. lets see.. .A 3 times world champion and 8 times continental champions that has never been defeated on world tournaments Vs a Team that had yet not won a single world cup + won only 3 times the continental cup.. why the result is such a surprise??
