World Cup 2022 in Qatar: The tournament of weak standards


At the 2018 World Cup in Russia, an above-average number of goals were scored after a stationary ball. The situation at the World Cup in Qatar was significantly different.

Goals from set pieces are becoming increasingly important in modern football.

Many teams have therefore strengthened their support team with experts who primarily ensure that the players take better corners, penalties and free-kicks.

It is all the more astonishing that fewer goals were scored from standard situations at the World Cup in Qatar than in more than 30 years.

Less fouls or better defensive behavior on corner kicks?

The reasons for this are still unclear.
