Every goal scored in the football World Cup, by minute

Which team has scored the most goals in the 2014 World Cup so far? Have more goals come out of this year’s competition than the last World Cup? Wonder no longer. This interactive new app build by the Economist, shows you every goal scored in the cup since 1930.

Journalists or football fans using the app can filter the goals, which are updated daily, by country, year and stage.   Goals from open play, penalties and own goals are displayed in different colours.

The app is not just a fun comparison tool, but also a great source of evidence, especially if you happen to get into a heated discussion with someone claiming, for an example, that Germany scored more goals than Brazil in 1994 World Cup.
