Soccer Tournaments




This page is dedicated to all the major soccer tournaments around the world. I will provide details of all of the teams who have qualified for the finals of each tournament, the players to watch out for and full schedules of who's playing when and where.

Major tournaments only come round once every few years but when they do there is a real sense of excitement around international soccer especially with the world cup. Billions of dollars are spent on these tournaments and with tv coverage having improved dramatically in recent years watching from home or in bars makes you feel like your actually there!

I will be starting with the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Click on the links below to learn more about each tournament.

Take a look below at previous world cup soccer tournaments. Every player in the world dreams of lifting the magnificent world cup trophy but very few have with the tournament only coming round once every four years and great teams always taking part.
