What was the average number of goals scored in the World Cup Final?

This figure can be due to a number of particularly high-scoring games, including Austria (7, Switzerland 5), Hungary (9, South Korea 0). The final score between West Germany and Hungary was a below-average 3-2.

In fact, the 2-3-1 formation used by Hungary to counterattack was originally designed for soccer games and not horse racing as is commonly believed! During their reign at the top level of world soccer, several teams used this system, most notably Barcelona with some success.

West Germany won the first two games against Austria and Switzerland using this formation but lost the third game 1-4 at home to Hungary. German coach Sepp Herberger decided to change things up and put Muller instead of Tezla on top because he felt that Tezla wasn't giving his all in the game. This move proved successful as Germany went on to win its second title.

Overall, the World Cup Final has averaged about 4.5 goals per match over time.

What was the highest-scoring World Cup Final?

Brazil defeated hosts Sweden 5-2 in the highest-scoring World Cup final in 1958. France defeated West Germany 6-3 in the World Cup's highest scoring third-place playoff. Germany boasts some of the finest World Cup records of any team in history. They have four titles to their name, more than any other country.

Germany came into the tournament as favorites because they were the reigning world champion. However, when they failed to win either of their first two games, people started to think that maybe this year's team wasn't as good as previous ones. But after winning both its next matches by a margin of 3-0, Germany proved once again that it is still one of the best teams in the world.

Here are the highest-scoring World Cup Finals:

1 Brazil vs. Sweden - 58 goals

The 1958 World Cup final was a spectacular match between two of Europe's favorite teams. It was held at Stadtpark in Stockholm and watched by 70,000 spectators. Despite being the underdog, Swedes managed to beat Brazil 5-2. The match is remembered for Gustav Bergqvist's goal which was scored directly from a Brazilian kick off.

How was the goal average calculated?

This is the sum of goals scored and goals surrendered. This system has been in operation for many years, yet it now appears ridiculous. If you score 8 goals and allow 3, your goal average is 2.66. If you score three goals and allow one, your goal average is three. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is actually very important for ranking players.

There are two ways to calculate goal difference: you can either add up the number of goals that teams have scored then subtract the number of goals that they have conceded, or you can take the total number of goals that have been scored (including own goals) and divide by two. The first method is used by most soccer publications around the world. The second method is used by some computer programs but not all. It is also useful for in-depth analysis of games played between small groups of teams.

Goals scored/conceded is usually shown in the form "X goals scored, Y conceded". X and Y can be replaced with the numbers of each team. So "Arsenal scored two goals while Liverpool conceded one" would show as "Arsenal +2 -1 Liverpool".

If you want to know how many goals a player has scored or conceded in his career, use the "Statistics" link on the official websites of the various leagues around the world.
