Uruguay was the first country calm of a World-wide Glass of Football. Said event made in Montevideo and the draw took place few days before the start of the competition, that became on 13 July 1930. It motivated this situation the fact that it was necessary to expect to that they arrived the other delegations. In that opportunity, the 13 participants divided in three groups of three and one of four.


In 1966 England was host of the Glass of the World. The president of the FIFA in these moments was Stanley Rous, an English that did not hide his joy in front of the rivals that had touched him in luck to his country. The group completed with Mexico, France and Uruguay. And when at the end the owners of house heaved with the trophy, Rous celebrated like an inflate more.


Along the years, the system of draws has gone improving as you will be able to check in Betfair. Julio Humberto Grondona the ex title of the AFA was key to the hour to do improvements. It was the main impulsor that the most difficult teams went 'heads of series'. And it did it to avoid the misunderstandings of 1978.

In that occasion the 'strong man' of the UEFA was the German Neuberger. In command of the European wing demanded that Germany, Holland, Poland and Brazil, that is to say the semifinalists of the glass of 1978 headed the series. But the sector sudamericano sustained that Argentina like hostess, had to have a place in the cabecera of the groups. Something that finally conceded him.

Recently in the championship of 1994, that was organised by United States decided officially that the leaders of group went those that better puntajes and averages had had in the three previous editions. In Betfair on-line bets will be able to check the results of the draw for Qatar 2022.

The worst draw

The draw that made before the Glass of the World organised by Spain in 1982 marked a before and an afterwards. The election of England instead of Belgium like head of series never convinced. But there was more: bolillas broken, an environment of total embarrassment and the distribution errática and erroneous of the teams, were part of a show for the forget.


Grondona Also modified the number of squares and the form of classification of each confederation. His idea (that it was endorsed by Havelange, the director in functions of the FIFA) seated the bases so that the Conmebol achieved 4 places and half, since this last defined by tiebreaker with another confederation.

Besides, for the tournament of 2014 kept the number of qualifiers of the competition. But like Brazil was the host gave a very singular situation. By only time 6 selections sudamericanas participated in a World-wide. Brazil as 'owner of house', together with Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile that classified directly and Uruguay that won him to Jordan in the repechaje.
