dbo:abstract
  • This all-time table compares men's national association football teams that have participated in the FIFA World Cup by several criteria including tournaments played, consecutive tournaments played or missed, matches, wins, draws, losses, goals, points, points per match, best finish, and confederation. Three different columns of accumulated points are provided for each team, all of them taking each game as if it were a World Cup group-stage match. * The first column applies the system used in the World Cup since 1994: 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss. * The second column applies the system used in the World Cup up to 1990: 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw, and 0 for a loss. Effectively, this system values a draw as worth half a win. * The third column is the points actually obtained: 2 points for a win up to 1990; 3 points for a win since 1994; always 1 point for a draw and 0 for a loss. The respective values for average points per match represent the ratio of the total accumulated points to the number of matches played by the team in the World Cup. The rank order of the teams is based on total points as per the "three points for a win" system, then on total goal difference, and then on goals scored in all World Cup matches. If two or more teams are still tied after the application of these criteria, they are given equal ranks and are listed alphabetically. As per statistical convention in football, matches decided in extra time are counted as wins and losses, while matches decided by penalty shoot-outs are counted as draws in this table. (en)
