    passive voice of the verb to win

    I wanted to ask you if you can confirm me this grammatical point in english
    can we use the verb to win in the passive voice?
    eg brazilia won the world cup in voice
    the world cup was won by brazilia in 1995 ......passive voice
    is the above sentence correct or not; there are some who say that the verb is not an action verb (to win) and consequently we cannot use it in the passive voice. Can u please cofirm this for me at your earliest convenience??
    also i wish to request you to kindly confirm whether in expressing concession with the conjunction "although" we are oblidged to follow it with a nominal phrase?
    thanks and best regards
