Nobes' World Cup Trivia Question - solution

Just over a week ago, and in celebration of the FIFA World Cup taking place in South Africa, Soccer AM/MW's Nobes tasked you with a special trivia question based on football's greatest showpiece.

He wanted to know whether you could work out the solution to this devilishly difficult poser?

Including this year's tournament, which country has appeared in every World Cup finals except for 1930, 1958, 1994, and 2006?

Did you work it out though? The answer was the host country of the next World Cup.

Italy were hosts in 1934, but didn't compete in inaugural tournament in 1930. Chile, hosts in 1962, weren't there in '58 in Sweden.

France were the 1998 hosts, but were surprisingly absent from the 1994 tournament held in the USA. Finally, this year's hosts - South Africa - didn't compete in Germany four years ago.

The 'country' in question at this year's tournament is Brazil, who are the next hosts in 2014.

Congratulations if you managed to get the right answer. Nobes will be back next season with more football trivia for you.
