In Pics: Winners and scorelines in World Cup football finals since 1930

Bangalore, June 5: A unique aspect of the Fifa World Cup football is that till 2006, Europe and Latin America had won the title by turn. In the 18 editions of the tournament held between 1930 and 2006, Europe and Latin America had won it nine times each. The sequence was disturbed in 2010 when Spain won it, giving Europe a 10-9 lead over Latin America. Can the Latin powerhouse strike back this time, particularly when the tournament is being held in its home turf?
