LUSAIL, Qatar (AP). The record-breaking six-goal final between France & Argentina was set at the World Cup this year with 172 goals.

1998 and 2014 set the previous tournament record with 171 goals. France hosted the 1998 tournament, which was the first in the current 32-team 64-game format.

A new record will be established at the 2026 World Cup. This event has 48 teams that played either 80 or104 games.

France and Argentina tied the record at 3-3 after extra time. France’s Kylian Mbappe scored a hat trick for France, while Lionel Messi scored two goals in Argentina.

Argentina won the title by winning 4-2 in penalty shootout.

This was the second straight final with six goals. Four years ago, in Russia, France defeated Croatia by 4-2.

Qatar’s average of 2.63 goals per match is well below the 5.38 goals per match World Cup record set in 1954 in Switzerland.
