FIFA World Cup goalscorers


FIFA World Cup goalscorers

This article lists every country's goalscorers in FIFA World Cup finals matches.

The scorers of many goals in FIFA World Cup history are disputed. For details, consult FIFA World Cup, goals with disputed scorers. For recent tournaments, official FIFA match reports are taken as truth. In earlier tournaments, FIFA match reports are known to be inaccurate, so Cris Freddi's book "Complete Book of the World Cup 2006" is used as the most authentic known publication.

For a list of goalscorers with at least five goals, see "FIFA World Cup records#List of overall top goalscorers".

Trivia

*Ronaldo became the World Cup's all-time leading goalscorer on 27th June 2006, scoring his 15th against Ghana in Round 2, surpassing Gerd Müller, who has scored 14 goals.
*The 1954 World Cup had the highest goal-scoring rate of 5.38 per match. 1990 had the lowest, just 2.21 goals per match. 1998 had the highest goal total of 171.
*The "adidas Golden Shoe" is awarded to the top goalscorer of each World Cup. The most recent winner was Germany's Miroslav Klose, who scored five goals in 2006. Klose also scored five in 2002, but was eclipsed by Ronaldo's eight, the highest total since Gerd Müller's ten in 1970.
*The 1000th goal in FIFA World Cup finals history was scored by Rob Rensenbrink for Netherlands in 1978 against Scotland; the 2000th by Marcus Allbäck for Sweden against England in 2006. There have been 2,063 goals scored to date (not including penalty shoot-outs). See "FIFA World Cup milestone goals".
*Germany have the most players in double figures with four; Gerd Müller (14 goals), Jürgen Klinsmann (11), Miroslav Klose (10) and Helmut Rahn (10).
*Four players have scored a goal in two Finals; Brazil's Pelé and Vavá, West Germany's Paul Breitner and France's Zinedine Zidane. The record for goals in World Cup Finals is three, shared by Pelé, Vavá, Zidane, and England's Geoff Hurst, who scored a hat-trick in the Final of 1966.
*Four players have scored two hat-tricks: Sándor Kocsis (Hungary, 1954), Just Fontaine (France, 1958), Gerd Müller (West Germany, 1970), and Gabriel Batistuta (Argentina, 1994 and 1998). Batistuta is the only player to score hat-tricks in two World Cups. See "FIFA World Cup hat-tricks" for a complete list of players who have scored hat-tricks in the FIFA World Cup.
*Only three players scored in every match while "playing the maximum possible amount of matches": Alcides Ghiggia for Uruguay in 1950, Just Fontaine for France in 1958, and Jairzinho for Brazil in 1970. Ghiggia only played in four matches, as two teams from Uruguay's group withdrew from the competition, and the tournament also did not have a final match (instead there was a final group stage). Fontaine played in six matches, but France did not reach the final and played in the third-place playoff instead. Jairzinho played in six matches, including Brazil's final victory over Italy.
*There exists much debate as to the greatest goal in World Cup history. Most 'lists' tend to opt for either Diego Maradona's second for Argentina against England in 1986, or Carlos Alberto Torres' for Brazil against Italy in the 1970 Final.
*To date there are only two British Players who have scored in 3 World Cups, these being Joe Jordan (West Germany 1974, Argentina 1978, and Spain 1982) and David Beckham (France 1998, Japan & South Korea 2002, and Germany 2006).
