Which Country Won The First World Cup?

What country won the very first World Cup in 1930?

The First World Cup Winner

Uruguay won the first ever World Cup in 1930, also making history as the first team to win a World Cup while being the host country. Italy followed suit by accomplishing the same feat in 1934, and doubled up its tally in 1938 with a win in France. After these three editions of the tournament, World War II put a halt to the World Cup for 12 years, and it was not held again until 1950 when Uruguay upset host nation Brazil in the final. The 1954 World Cup went back to Europe as Germany (then known as West Germany) won its first title in Switzerland.

1930 FIFA World Cup

The first-ever World Cup was held in 1930 in Montevideo, the capital city of Uruguay. That location proved to be a good omen for the home team, as Uruguay went all the way to the finals, beating Argentina 4-2 to claim the first World Cup win in history. Uruguay was a football powerhouse early in the century, having also won gold at the 1924 Olympics. They would also make it to the championship match in 1950 when they claimed their second, and at that point most-recent, championship.
