All-time table of the FIFA World Cup

This all-time table compares national teams that have participated in the FIFA World Cup by a number of criteria including matches, wins, losses, goals, total points, points per played matches, etc.

The table also shows –among other things– the accumulated points for every team that has ever participated in the tournament. This takes each game as if it were a World Cup group-stage match, giving 3 points per win, 1 point per draw and 0 points per loss (as nowadays). The rank order is based on total points. The points per matches played controls for number of matches played and thus, factoring in the total accumulated points divided by the total matches a team has played at the World Cup. Matches decided in penalty shootouts count as draws in this table.
