Why This Might Be The Greatest World Cup Ever

June 29, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

The BBC looked at some statistics which indicate that this is the best Football World Cup ever:

  • In the group stages of the game there have, on average, been 2.83 goals per game – more than any other World Cup in over 50 years.
  • Nail biting finishes are a crowd pleaser and in the group stages there were seven that were decided in the last five minutes.
  • The games have been close – 44% of the games were won with a one-goal margin, the most in World Cup history.
  • A record 83% of games have ended in a win instead of a draw.
