Kathmandu: The record for the highest number of goals scored in the World Cup held in Qatar. A record of 172 goals has been made in the World Cup held in Qatar this year.
In the World Cup final between Argentina and France on Sunday night, both teams scored three goals and made a total of six goals, making the game sensational and exciting.
In addition to the final match, Argentina managed to win the title by defeating the previous winner France 4-2 in the penalty shootout after the goal difference was equal in 30 minutes.
The Qatar World Cup has become the most goal-scoring tournament so far. One hundred and seventy-two goals have been scored in the 2022 World Cup. This is just one goal more than the 171 goals scored in the matches of 1998 and 2014.
Despite Spain’s 7-0 win over Costa Rica and England’s 6-2 win over Iran, there were six goalless draws in the group stage.
The 2026 edition will almost certainly see a new goalscoring record as the World Cup expands to 48 teams. This means that a tournament with a minimum of 80 games will get more goals.
FIFA will decide whether to play in four groups of 12 teams or three groups of 16 teams.
