The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which everyone evaluates to be the most exciting ever, ended in great success.
On the 19th (Korean time), British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ revealed 5 trends seen in the Qatar World Cup held in winter for the first time ever. The first thing mentioned was that there were a lot of abnormalities. There were so many unexpected results that the Qatar World Cup was called an extraordinary event. Dramatic victories came one after another as the weak team defeated the strong team.
‘BBC’ said, “This is the first time since the 1958 World Cup in Sweden that 24% of all matches have been won by the underdog. This is the first time in 64 years.” Saudi Arabia’s defeat of Argentina is typical, South Korea’s victory over Portugal, Morocco’s advance to the semifinals for the first time in Africa, Cameroon’s defeat of Brazil, and Japan’s defeat of Germany and Spain.
It was introduced that the average number of shots was the lowest when statistics began in 2002. At the same time, it was 172 goals, the highest score since being reorganized into 32 teams at the 1998 World Cup in France. In other words, the shooting was less overall, but the number of goals was increased.
The number of fouls was 1,599, which was the lowest. The number of fouls decreased, but in this World Cup, due to the direction of giving as much extra time as possible, the extra time increased by an average of 11 minutes.” It was also said that the number of penalty kicks (PK) per game has also decreased significantly. 토토
It was also characteristic that the number of players in their teens increased. Young guns such as Jude Bellingham (England), Jamal Musiala (Germany), Pablo Garvey and Pedri (both Spain) were named in the starting lineup. Only the number of appearances in the 10th selection is 20 times. It can be seen that he played as a key resource, not simply a player who participated in the World Cup.
There were also many veteran players. 27 veterans over the age of 35 made 83 starts, a huge increase compared to the 32 in the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup. Lionel Messi (Argentina) and Luka Modric (Croatia), who showed crazy presence, were representative veterans. He made the World Cup more interesting with his ageless performances.
