NUMBER OF GOALS SCORED AT EACH WORLD CUP SINCE 1930 TO 2014


As the World Cup draws closer, we take a look at the goal scoring record of the World Cup from 1930 to 2014.

The record for the most goals at the World Cup is 171 jointly held by the 1998 World Cup in France and 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Also the world cup in Brazil has the record for the most amount of different scorers in a single tournament with 121 players.

The first two World Cups 1930 and 1934 share the record for the fewest goals with 70 each. This is considerable because there were only 13 and 16 teams in the finals respectively.

1954 World Cup in Switzerland has the most goals per match, with 140 goals in 26 matches thus an average of 5.38 goals per match.   

Italy 1990 World Cup had the fewest goals per match, with 115 goals in 52 matches which gives 2.21 goals per average.
