Italy won the final of an international competition which is recognised by all football associations (maybe with the exception of Vatican City and some small Pacific islands) as the one and only football competition which determines the champion of the world. It is called WORLD CUP.

Your not even talking about a football club here! Where's the link!?

On club level, there was something like a world cup which hosts the winners of the continental champions' tournaments of all continents. It is called FIFA Club World Championship. Its organised by FIFA, therefore its legitimate.

The current world club champion is São Paulo FC from Brazil. They beat Liverpool on the final. This year's CWC will take place in Japan in December. Barcelona are said to be the favourites, but they ARE NOT world champions until they win that trophy!

If Miami Heat go to an international tournament organised by FIBA, with the participation of the European champion, the Asian, African, etc champions and they win it, only then they can call themselves world champion. But even before going there, they'll have to prove that they're the best team on their continent! No matter how funny and useless this sounds to you.

In case you attempt to tackle this sentence, i'll just mention that the whole world has signed the Kyoto Protocol except USA, and the whole world recognises the Geneva Charter of Children Rights, except USA. But the lack of support from USA doesnt make these two documents illegitimate.
