The Confederations Cup has a relatively recent history. In 1985 and 1993, the winners of the UEFA Euro Championship and of the Copa America contested against each other for the Artemio Franchi Trophy, which is thought to be the predecessor to this tournament.
In 1992 and 1995, this trophy was called the King Fahd Cup and was contested by the Saudi national side along with some of the winners of continental tournaments like the CAF, CONMEBOL, UEFA, AFC, OFC and CONCACAF.
However in 1997, FIFA took over the organization of this tournament and started conducting it every two years under the name FIFA Confederations Cup. From 2005 onward, the tournament is being held every four years. It is held one year prior to the World Cup at the same venue of the latter and is considered to be a dress rehearsal for the eventual hosts of the World Cup.
Eight teams are divided into two groups and play each other once in the group stage. The top two teams in each group contest the semi-finals with the winners going into the finals and the losers playing for a third-placed finish.
This year there is a mouth-watering line-up for the Confederations Cup in South Africa. Group A includes South Africa, Iraq, New Zealand and Spain, while Group B includes USA, Italy, Brazil and Egypt.
Brazil are the most successful nation in the Confederations Cup along with France having won the trophy twice. They do start as favorites along with Spain in this year’s tournament as well.
Players to watch out for
Fernando Torres, Amr Zaki, Kaka and David Villa will be the leading players to watch out for in this year's event.
