Global soccer rankings – additional information

Brazil and Germany are among the all-time top ranking national teams that have participated in the World Cup between 1930 and 2014, with a total of 227 and 218 points, respectively. Since 1908, Germany’s national soccer team, governed by the German Football Association, has represented the nation in international soccer competitions. Based on World Football Elo Ratings, Germany obtained the highest rating ever for a World Cup Champion during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, starting the tournament with 2,046 points and ending it with 2,196. Elo Ratings account for team strength in starting a tournament, dominance during the tournament, quality of competition, and any aid from playing at home.

Germany has won the World Cup four times (1954, 1974, 1990, 2014) and the European Championships three times (1972, 1980, 1996). In the FIFA World Cup in 2014, Germany had one of the best goal differentials for a World Cup champion with 18 goals scored and only four allowed, a plus-14 difference. During this World Cup, there was an average of 2.7 goals scored per game.
