TBH I expect everyone expects latinos to win World Cups.

Only three Latin American teams have ever won it and it will be 20 years at least by the time the next one wins it. Europe is the dominant force in football.

Brazil has won five cups and Argentina and Uruguay have won two apiece. Don't try to be arrogant like America.

I'm aware of how many World Cups those nations have won.

There's a reason why there's no alternative for "American football" that doesn't include "American".

Case in point. The United States almost always won the Gold in basketball like it was somehow their birthright. They were always college amateurs up until 1988, when they had the audacity of settling for the Bronze. Well, we couldn't have that, so in 1992, we formed the Dream Team with the biggest NBA stars.They blew everyone out and a couple players really showed their ass in the process. The Dream Team all but ruined amateur sports for everyone. Why? Because the US had to be best at everything, kind of like the Soviet Union in its heyday and Germany in 1936 infamously. The point is nobody really likes someone that has to win at all costs (and, no, I'm not talking about England- they're a class act). Anyhow, I'm glad Europe is a power in football (sorry, Bats, but that is what it's called in most of Europe), but don't dis the other countries, especially the Latin ones. I have no doubt they'll rise again.
