i saw an article talking about this the other day, actually.

i think it mentioned Brazil in 1970 as the only team to have won every world cup qualification and finals game, but Netherlands have a good chance of doing the same now.

All the early ones were knockout only, so Italy presumably won in France in 38 with no defeats.

1970 there was group stages, they were introduced pre-66 because Nations were travelling thousands of miles for potentially only one game. Not quite sure which year it was though.

1970 was staged in Mexico. Brazil beat England as they were in the same group.

Brazil in 2002 are the only country to have won seven out of seven.

Definitely a group stage in 1970 as Brazil and England were in the same group.
