Argentina lifted the Copa America in 1991 and 1993 as part of their unbeaten run. They did not lose after their defeat to West Germany in 1990, and the two-year run was only broken by Colombia in the World Cup qualifiers for 1994.

France — 30 (1994-1996)

The reigning World Cup winners failed to qualify for the competition in 1990 and 1994, and France beat Italy in 1994 to start their unbeaten run. Their undefeated run was overcome by Denmark in a friendly.

Italy — 30 (1935-1939)

In the 1930s, Italy was absolutely untouchable and lifted the World Cup twice in the decade. Italy had its unbeaten run for four years almost a century, in comparison to their run for three years recently. They also won the Olympic Gold Medal during this time.
