In Stats: France 2019 Group Stage

WOMEN’S WORLD CUP

GROUP STAGE IN STATS



MAGICAL MARTA

The Brazilian icon is now the top World Cup (men or women) scorer of all-time after nabbing her 17th goal. She is also the first player to score at 5 different World Cup finals (she was later joined by Canada's Christine Sinclair on that mark).

USA’S RECORD NIGHT

Their 13-0 win over Thailand is the biggest victory and highest-scoring match in FWWC history. 7 different players scored, including Alex Morgan’s record-equaling 5 goals.

HAT-TRICK WOES

Debutantes Jamaica conceded a hat-trick to all of their Group C opponents, with Cristiane (Brazil), Cristiana Girelli (Italy) and Sam Kerr (Australia) the players responsible. That is a historic (if sad) first

FANTASTIC FIRSTS

  • Claire Emslie scored Scotland’s 1st-ever FWWC goal
  • Thembi Kgatlana scored South Africa’s 1st-ever FWWC goal
  • Havana Solaun scored Jamaica’s 1st-ever FWWC goal
  • Waraporn Boonsing (Thailand goalkeeper own goal) actually scored Chile’s 1st-ever FWWC goal
  • Onome Ebi became the 1st African to play at 5 World Cups

ALREADY A RECORD

When Vanina Correa (ARG) saved Nikita Parris' (ENG) penalty kick, it lifted the total saves from the spot at France 2019 to 3 – already the highest number at a single edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

CRISTIANE AND CARLI

At 34 years and 25 days, Cristiane broke Carli Loyd’s record as the oldest player to score a finals hat-trick. However, the USA legend responded: becoming the 1st player to score in 6 successive FWWC matches.

CRAZY COMEBACKS

No team has ever come back from 3-0 down to draw like Argentina did against Scotland (in the last 20 minutes!), and Australia became just the 2nd team ever to fightback from 2-0 to win 3-2 against Brazil

FORÇA FORMIGA

The Brazilian has now played in a record 7 FIFA Women’s World Cups. When the France 2019 squads were officially announced, 150 players weren’t even born when Formiga made her finals debut in 1995. She is also re-writing records as the oldest player in the tournament’s history at 41 years, 107 days and counting…
