    Once again, excellent post! I’m so glad that one of my friends referred me to this blog (by the way, I lost a bet about football facts due to you guys, so you owe me now 😛 ). I never thought that the countries that took home the gold (even if temporarily) had low scores like that. Usually, you end up believing that the champion team would’ve hit the net at least 40, 50 times, but strangely as it turns out from these facts, the score to win is usually not that much. So all in all, it’s about the quality of play, rather than the overal number of goals scored. Am I getting this right? I’m sure that the champions from the World Cup years that you’ve mentioned were not the highest scorers listed here. Please verify this. And thank you for enabling me to score this wonderful drug of a blog. Yes, I’m addicted now. Keep writing, Maira.l
