The18 World Cup Takeover
This is the match every young footballer dreams of playing in one day. The match where legends are created. The match that determines the champion of the world. The final of the most magnificent sporting event on the planet will be played once again on Dec. 18, 2022, in Qatar. So what better time than now to look at some of the most incredible World Cup final records?
The greatest tournament in the greatest sport generates the greatest records. The FIFA World Cup, which dates back to 1930, has no shortage of incredible records. With the 2022 tournament around the corner, we’ve compiled the greatest World Cup records of all time.
Want to know who has scored the most goals in the World Cup, overall, in a single match or a single tournament? Read on.
Want to know who has the most clean sheets or longest scoreless streak in a World Cup? Read on.
In 2018 the USMNT was left out of the most-watched sporting event in the world. The football vs futbol and World Cup vs Super Bowl debates are made in vain. Although the NFL and the Super Bowl continue to hold the top ratings spot in the U.S., overall World Cup viewership dwarfs that of American football.
Alex Morgan wants a three-peat.
The ESPN+ exclusive four-part series “Alex Morgan: The Equalizer” concluded with the USWNT star striker saying she’s not planning to retire anytime soon. The 30-year-old has her eyes on more medals and an unprecedented third Women’s World Cup title.
The work never ends when you’re a women’s footballer, as the 2019 USWNT victory tour makes abundantly clear.
After a 10-match pre-World Cup schedule and seven grueling games at the Women’s World Cup in France, the USWNT will be trotted out five more times in 2019. U.S. Soccer has announced all five dates on a moneymaking USWNT victory tour, including stops in Philadelphia, St. Paul, Minnesota, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Cincinatti, Ohio.
The celebration continues
Jill Ellis announced Tuesday she will resign from the USWNT after the team’s Victory Tour ends in October, bringing to an end the most successful reign in the history of women’s soccer coaching.
As was anticipated following the success of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, a special FIFA Council vote has unanimously approved the expansion of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to a 32-team field.
USWNT coach Jill Ellis will step down from her role following the U.S. Victory Tour that ends in October. She led the U.S. to two consecutive Women's World Cup titles in 2015 and 2019, the first coach in history to do so.
For everything she has done and everything she has meant to this program we say, THANK YOU
