FIFA World Cup 2014 has been noticed by analyst in one aspect that this FIFA 2014’s average goals are 2nd most highest in the history of FIFA World cup 2014 after the FIFA World Cup 1958. Current FIFA 2014 goal rate per match is 2.9 and its at 2nd position after the highest scores average in 1958 in Sweden as 3.6. I have given some reasons why the average goal rate is higher and the reasons behind the rain of goals in fifa 2014 are also mentioned below.
1. The Techniques of ‘tiki-taka followed by All..
The founder of so called tiki taka style of passing, Spain have to face current position of “out of FIFA” after all of the teams have been copying their technique of passing goals with tiki taka style. The example set by players such as Xavi and Andres Iniesta means that players have become accustomed to taking more risks in possession, which leads to more returns, and in turn, more goals.
2. Warm weather of Brazil
With compared to the cold weather of South Africa in the 2010 World Cup, the current weather of Brazil which is great to play soccer games is the major factor for the too many goals. As players try to stay active in heat (and becomes hyper active some time due to rain games) and more scorer in the FIFA 2014 Brazil. The heat and humidity means that players tire more quickly and when players get tired, they make more mistakes. “Certainly (the conditions) are playing a part,” said Australia coach Ange Postecoglou, quoted by the Daily Telegraph.So, its also a reason for higher goal rate in FIFA 2014.
3. Newly invented Innovative tactics
– While the 4-2-3-1 formation was the dominant playing system at the last World Cup, teams have enjoyed success in Brazil with more idiosyncratic tactical configurations. Holland’s 5-3-2 system enabled them to crush Spain 5-1 as it gave Louis van Gaal’s side numerical parity in midfield whilst allowing forwards Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie to remain high up the pitch. “The fact that our defence plays very deep frees up a lot of space for Robin and me,” explains Robben. “We have the whole pitch for leading counter-attacks.” After a seemingly ineluctable slide towards single-striker systems in recent years, more and more teams are playing with two central forwards, and more forwards often means more goals.
4. Early goals
Its quite right that most of the FIFA 2014 games goals are scores in early times. For e.g Brazil defender Marcelo hit the goal by mistake in 11 minutes in the opening game, the hosts’ 3-1 win over Croatia, and early goals have become a recurring theme. There were 25 first-half strikes in the tournament’s first 20 matches, and nothing opens a game up like an early goal. Already, seven teams have come from behind to win matches. Only four managed the feat at the 2010 tournament.
5. Poor goalkeeping
Goalkeepers over confident ature seems more riskier for the team as opponent are hitting goals by taking its advantage to the great level in the past week’s matches. Fior e.g.– Van Persie’s looping header against Spain; Tim Cahill’s jaw-dropping volley against Holland; Lionel Messi’s solo special against Bosnia-Hercegovina — but standards of goalkeeping have been less impressive. Spain’s Iker Casillas made two woeful errors against Holland, while Russia’s Igor Akinfeev and Mathew Ryan of Australia have also committed high-profile blunders.
6. The snowball effect
This factor is unknown to many soccer lovers even for me also. But the tournament’s goal spree is encouraging teams to throw caution to the wind, creating a climate where risk-taking is applauded and defensive play derided.
“I’m surprised how open it’s been,” admits England striker Daniel Sturridge. He also further continued: “It’s been quite open and, for the neutrals, it’s a great World Cup to see, with so many goals and chances. I’m enjoying it, enjoying the occasion — watching games as well as playing.”
