This timeline recapitulates several significant moments throughout the history of the FIFA World Cup. Although the game of soccer, or “football” as it is known across the majority of the world, can be traced back thousands of years, the FIFA World Cup commenced only 86 years ago. The timeline captures memorable moments from 1930, when Uruguay defeated Argentina in the first World Cup, to 1984 when Diego Maradona punched the ball into the net, dubbing it the “Hand of God”.
