Two World Cup finals have been decided by penalties. In 1994 Brazil beat Italy 3-2 after 120 goalless minutes while in 2006 Italy were victorious 5-3 against France after a 1-1 draw.

Only two of the 24 shoot-outs have needed extra penalties after the original five attempts each. The first, between West Germany and France in a 1982 semi-final, and a 1994 quarter-final between Sweden and Romania, both of which needed six each.

Former Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Goycoechea has saved the most penalties. He saved three in the 1990 quarter-final victory over Yugoslavia and two more in the semi-final victory over Italy. Argentina lost the final 1-0 to West Germany - the only goal being a penalty.
