As we countdown the days to the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup we turn our attentions to the 19 World Cup Finals that have been played so far, and take a closer look at the stats generated by those tournament-deciders:
99 - Including penalty shoot-outs, a total of 99 goals have been scored in 19 FIFA World Cup Finals.
48 - Along the way to picking up the most famous trophy in world sport, the winning nation have hit the back of the net on 48 occasions (not including penalty shoot-outs).
38 - In conquering the world, a total of 38 goals have been conceded by the champions in the Final (not including penalty shoot-outs).
36 - The height of the current World Cup trophy in centimetres is 36. Unlike it's predecessor, the Cup is not awarded to the winning country permanently - instead they are given a gold plated replica to keep
20 - This year's World Cup Final will be the 20th. The first was held in 1930.
19 - There have been 19 different captains who have lifted the gold trophy. Perhaps unsurprisingly (as you dig deeper into the stats) no-one has ever skippered a nation to success more than once.
10 - The winners have come from Europe 10 times. South America is the only other continent to enjoy success on the world stage.
8 - Over the 19 Finals played so far, eight different countries have triumphed.
7 - The most goals scored in a Final (excluding penalties) was when Brazil beat Sweden 5-2 in 1958.
6 - The World Cup has been won six times by a host country.
5 - Brazil have won the World Cup five times - the most by any nation (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994 and 2002).
5 - The number of clean sheets kept by winning nations in the Final is five. There were four in a row between 1990 and 2002 (excluding penalty shoot-outs).
5 - Between 1978 and 1998 five of the six captains to lift the trophy had a Christian name beginning with D - Daniel, Dino, Diego, Dunga and Didier. Lothar Matthaus was sandwiched in between.
4 - Italy have four titles to their name (1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006).

3 - When Brazil won the Jules Rimet for the third time in 1970 they were entitled to keep it. It was stolen 13 years later and has never been recovered.
3 - Pele is the only player to have three winners' medals. He didn't play in 1962 due to injury but was retrospectively awarded a winners' medal in 2007 when FIFA announced all winning squad members from between 1930 and 1974 would now receive a medal.
2 - Argentina (1978 and 1986) and Uruguay (1930 and 1950) have won the tournament twice. The latter were the first ever winners.
