Mekko chart showing World Cup finals appearances and wins

The Mekko chart (otherwise known as the Marimekko chart) below shows FIFA World Cup finals wins and appearances. The width of the column is proportional to the number of world cup appearances a country has had in the final games. The segments in each column illustrate the number or wins and losses (win percentage).  While Germany has one more finals appearance, Brazil has won the cup one more time.

We rotated the column labels to allow the country names to fit neatly.  In addition, we use a data row to share the last time the country won the World Cup.
