Dream Teams in Sports History

The “Dream Team” designation links directly with the USA basketball team that participated in the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games. It was the first Olympic team to include NBA players and was considered, at the time, to be the best squad ever in world sport.

This team brought together basketball stars like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, Larry Bird, and Scottie Pippen, and they won the gold medal in that competition. However, throughout the history of the sport, many other extraordinary teams have delighted sports fans.

Let's recall some great teams of recent years.

 

F.C. Barcelona

Football (2009)

The Spanish team coached by Pep Guardiola won all the competitions they were involved in. 6 in total, including the Champions League. The team had a unique and collective style of playing, known as tiki-taka, and had great players like Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Henry or Eto'o. This team marked an era in world football.  

 

New Zealand

Rugby (2015)

In 2015, the New Zealand rugby team became world champions in a thrilling final against Australia. No team has ever won two world championships in a row. The “All Blacks”, as they are known, became famous worldwide for their united performance of the Haka, a Maori dance, performed at the beginning of each game.

 

Mercedes

Formula 1 (2020)

In 2020, Mercedes proved once again its competitiveness, winning its seventh consecutive title. The German team led by drivers Lewis Hamilton (6 titles) and Nico Rosberg (1 title) equalled Ford's seven consecutive victories, conquered in 1974. An incredible record in the most popular racing competition in the world.

 

Team Europe

Tennis (2022) 

The Europe Team of the Laver Cup 2022 united a truly luxury squad. Nadal, Djokovic, and Federer played on the same team against the World Team led by the former player, John McEnroe. However, this set of stars was not enough to win. In the end, 13-8 for the world team, which proves that only having stars does not necessarily make a good team.
