The statistical analysis was conducted with the non-parametric chi-square test. Results showed that there are no statically significant differences between goals scoring frequency per 45 minutes (X2= 0.316 p<0.05) and per 15 minutes periods (X2= 0.237 p<0.05) between the world cup 2014 and the world cup 2018.There is no statically significant difference between the first goal impact in the match on the match outcome (X2= 0.930 p<0.05) and between the area from the goals were scored (x2=0.159, p>0.05). There is a statistically significant difference in scoring from open play (X2=0.03, p>0.05). there is a statically significant difference in scoring after an exceptional effort (X2=0.00, p>0.05), and after a direct free kick (X2=0.04, p>0.05).
