The FIFA World Cup 2022 which will be played in Qatar from 20th November to 18th December this winter, is the 22nd running of this world’s grandest football competition.
In the past 21 tournaments, there are many records made among those teams and players, some of them are too hard to be surpassed.
Most Winner: Brazil and Pele
Brazil is the most successful national team in football history, as they have won five world championships.
The South American giant lifted the golden trophies in 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002. They are also the only team who participated in all the 22 events, including this year.
Meanwhile, Pele, the Brazilian legend who is widely regarded as the football GOAT (Greatest of All Time), is the only player who won three World Cup titles.
Pele is also the youngest player in World Cup history, to both score a goal and win a championship.
Top Scorer: Klose, Fontaine and Salenko
In the record book of scoring, Miroslav Klose featured the cover as the FIFA World Cup top scorer of all time.
The German striker had made 16 goals in his appearances in four tournaments from 2002 to 2014. He is also the only player to play in the World Cup’s semi final four times, also the only one to collect three types of medals (the winner, runner-up and third place).
Just Fontaine is the player who scored most goals in a single tournament. The French attacker made 13 goals in the six matches of Sweden World Cup 1958.
Meanwhile, Oleg Salenko holds the record of most goals scored by a player in a World Cup match.
The Russian made this in the group stage of USA World Cup 1994, as he made five goals in Russia’s 6-1 victory against Cameroon.
The Biggest Winning and Most Goals
The biggest win was created in two games, which both were made by Hungary.
They did this in the 10-1 victory against Salvado in the 1982’s event, and crushed South Korea 9-0 in 1954.
The most goals in a World Cup match also happened in Switzerland World Cup 1954, where Austria defeated the host team 7-5, producing 12 goals.
Best Predictor: Paul the Octopus
This record is not held by a team or a player, but by an animal.
Paul the octopus had successfully predicted all the eight matches in South Africa World Cup 2010.
The sea creature who borned in the United Kingdom and raised in a German aquarium, became a much-told tale with 100% prediction, from the group stage to the final.
