Team of the Season 2014-15 - COLOMBIA
Following the World Cup, the lead changed hands three times. Argentina gained swift revenge for their final defeat by beating
Germany, 4-2 in Dusseldorf, but just weeks later, their arch rivals, Brazil proved that their 7-1 World Cup semi-final thrashing
was soon to
be consigned to history. Colombia then made a meteoric rise, having just reached the World Cup quarter-finals
 for the first time. They defeated Brazil in the Copa Amrica and rose to the summit. Argentina knocked them out on penalties,
 but it wasn't enough to knock them off the top.

Team of the Season 2015-16 - COSTA RICA
Despite the last three World Cups being won by European teams, these rankings had been dominated by South America during
the period, purely because Argentina had beaten each of the World Champions, within a few months of them winning the title, and
the subsequent lack of key matches between the two continents. This season created the great Atlantic divide, with Costa Rica
banishing France (the last lingering European hope in the top four) to the second group as they proved that their own World Cup
performances were no flash in the pan.
