The first 16 matches of the FIFA Under-17 World Championship for the JVC Cup have produced a total of 55 goals—a very healthy average of 3.4 goals per game.
The highest-scoring team so far is Brazil, who have netted ten times in their two matches against Austria and the United States. Mexico and Oman have each scored seven.
Mohamed Hashim Saleh of Oman leads the individual scorers, with two goals in each of his two matches. Spain's David has scored three and six players have scored two each. Brazil's ten goals have all been scored by different players.
The level of discipline is high, too, with only two red cards and two yellow-reds so far.
