    Last man to score for their countries in world cup finals?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    Although not the winners, this country set two world cup records in a single tournament that still stand today. Which country and which records?

    Do the records involve goals scored?
    Phillip Hughes 1988-2014

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    Is it a post-war World Cup?

    Was the country involved the host nation?

    Republic of Ireland at Italia 90?

    Most games at a World Cup without winning (5) and fewest goals scored in order to reach the quarter finals? (2)

    No.

    Both records unambiguously desireable ones to have.

    Nope, although probably true.

    It was most goals in the group stage (17). All the more impressive because they only played two games.
