I always planed on putting together a post to highlight what has happened in the world while I have been on this journey.
Like everything it takes time to tell the story. This is the first draft!
First up we have the international competitions from around the world.
FIFA World Cup
Italy, Argentina and Argentina have been the champions thus far.
England have continued to perform well.
Brazil have been a recent force. I am looking for them at the next world cup.
Africa Cup of Nations
Ghana have carved out the title of the best side in Africa.
Iran have been and Asian force.
Next up come the individual confederations
UEFA Champions League
Won by the usual suspects, although Liverpool won the title in 2016.
UEFA Europa League
England have dominated this competitions with six wins out of the ten seasons.
CAF Champions League
My Jomo Cosmos team of 2018 was in the mix, however Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia have been a force.
CONCACAF Champions League
AFC Champions League
The results show that no one country has been dominant.
The rise of the Solomon Warriors has been impressive.
Barclays Premier League
What can you say about the Manchester United wave. Only three winners in ten years, and only one year when United was not in the top three.
Sky Bet Championship
There are a few breaks in the United domination. Newcastle in 2015, Arsenal in 2020, Liverpool in 2021, and Spurs in 2022 have broken up the gang of three.
Capital One Cup
One competition which has escaped the United domination. However City have kept the Manchester presence felt.
Augsburg are the only abomination in the Dortmund and Bayern show. Bayern have been no lower than third in the ten years.
Dorrtmund have been dominant in the cup, with Bayern almost nowhere to be seen.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have five wins a piece. Barcelona and Madrid have both been in top three ten times. Athletico Madrid have been in top three eight times.
Juventus have been dominant, Sampdoria good, and A.C. Milan less than stellar.
Please leave a comment of what other leagues I should add to this review.
