Chances to win once again increase when a national football team is already won the World Cup. Also chances to win the World Cup or a continental tournament rise immediately after a big success. A comprehensive table is analyzed to show how major tournament football serial success depends on status of dynasty team. National football federation’s efforts to naturalize football players and establishing of complex programs for searching and upbringing of talented youth are also crucial. This paper concludes with some predictions concerning performance of Russia’s national football team on 2016 European Cup in France.
