World Cup 2022: Why are there fewer goals at this tournament?



Christian Eriksen #10 of Denmark reacts during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group D match between Denmark and Tunisia at Education City Stadium on November 22, 2022 in Al Rayyan, Qatar.

The 2022 World Cup had three times as many goalless draws as in 2018. In fact, yesterday we went three hours without seeing a goal net waving at all.

While anyone might claim you can have a mesmerizing 0-0 – and you certainly can – we want to see goals at the greatest show on Earth. The clean sheets have led some to argue that this won’t be a particularly fun tournament, although it’s just the start.
