World Cup 2014 Brazil GOOOALS!!!

Well, that was fun! Anyone else feel like they’re in World Cup withdrawal?

I have just the thing for you…

I was fortunate enough to catch almost every game played in the World Cup, my favorite of all sporting events. As you can tell, I’m a sucker for all the facts, stats, data, odds, visuals, blogs, coverage, memes, and general hype around this year’s World Cup. There are so many fantastic websites out there that produce hours of entertainment for me. FIFA itself provided some really cool content and statistics on their website and app, while sources like The Guardian produced a flurry of facts and stats. After creating a data set that detailed each goal scored in World Cup 2014 (sans overtime penalty kicks), I decided to use Tableau v8.2’s story points to help organize and visualize some of the fun facts provided by The Guardian. Check it out:
