In the last 20 years, Brazil won 2 World Cups, 4 America Cups and 4 Confederation Cups.
Last time Germany won a World Cup was in 1990 (24 years ago), and last time Germany won a Euro Cup was 1996 (18 years ago)
Last time Argentina won a World Cup was 1986 (28 years ago), and last time Argentina won an America Cup was in 1993 (21 years ago)
The last 2 World Cup winners (Italy ans Spain) didn't even pass the qualifiers this year (Italy for the second time consecutively)
Football is definitely very cyclical, Brazil had an historical defeat, and must lick it's wounds and plan the long term.
But the yellow jersey will always be one of the greatest ones around.
