Ready to go deep, wide and quirky when it comes to your World Cup knowledge?
Utah business intelligence innovator Domo has you covered with a new and free-to-use World Cup tracker that has compiled a mountain of data from every World Cup championship going back to its debut in 1930 as well as updates from this year’s 22nd edition of the global tournament in Qatar.
A few fun pullouts from the data:
In 21 World Cups, only 8 different countries have won the tournament.
Javier Mascherano has the most career yellow cards (7) of any player in the World Cup.
Brazil has both the most World Cup wins (5) and match wins (73) since 1930. What’s interesting is that Italy trails in second with four World Cup wins and third in match wins, but didn’t actually qualify for the tournament this year.
Fans can sort data by teams, matchups, player stats, championships and much more. Getting into the details is easy thanks to an intuitive, dashboard-driven interface that also includes an “Ask me anything” portal that utilizes a natural language processor to get you connected to the most minute World Cup esoterica.
