Apart from Sweden in 1958 and England in 1966 (both of whom qualified automatically as hosts), every other country to have appeared in a World Cup final has done so on multiple occasions.
Edit: Sorry, Spain have only done so once, too.
I didn't say anything about getting to the final and I didn't say anything about the World Cup..
How do you define 'does well' then? It's just not quantifiable from what you've said. I'd hardly say Equatorial Guinea getting to the semis of AFCON 2015 or Tahiti winning the OFC Nations Cup a few years ago is anywhere near the same kind of achievement as Croatia being World Cup runners up with Modric being named player of the tournament.
Pretty simple really. Salah "did well" last season. Liverpool won fuck all.
You didn't say anything about individual players and you didn't say anything about clubs..
