Sokratis Papastathopoulos's stoppage-time equaliser for Greece against Costa Rica was the 145th goal of the 2014 World Cup - equalling the overall total of the 2010 finals in South Africa.

Since the 64-match format was installed 16 years ago, the scoring has steadily decreased from 171 goals at France '98, 161 at Japan and South Korea in 2002, 147 at Germany 2006 and 145 in South Africa.
