Goals Scored at the 2010 FIFA World Cup

The official FIFA web site has detailed information about each game played in the 2010 World Cup. Given there will be a lot of interest in goal scoring after the World Cup I thought I would use the links offered by the FIFA video page of goals scored to create a record that might be of use in the performance analysis of goal scoring.

145 goals were scored in 64 games. (101 in Group Games, 44 in Knockout Games.)

Knockout Stages

These games include extra time (when required) and a penalty shoot out if scores remain level at the end of extra time.

There have been 16 games to date that have produced a total of 44 goals. Game 55 ended in a penalty shoot out (Paraguay scored 5 penalty goals and Japan scored 3). Game 58 ended in a penalty shoot out (Uruguay scored 4 penalty goals and Ghana scored 2). These penalty shoot out goals are not included in the total goals scored. The goals in the knockout tournament have been scored in the following quarters of the game:

Note: the FIFA web site uses a basic 0-90 minute running clock for goal times. I have used these times to allocate the goals scored into four quarters of the game (notionally 0-22, 23-45 (end of first half), 46-68, 69-90 (end of second half)). Extra Time uses two sets of fifteen minutes (90-105, 105-120). I have used these times to allocate goals in extra time.

Qualification Tournament

There were 48 games in the qualifying tournament that produced a total of 101 goals. These goals have been scored in the following quarters of the game:
