Football is a game of goals, and the happiest moment for players mad fans is when the ball hits the back of the net. When a goal is scored the team that scored is filled with exhilarating joy while the team that concedes will start to look for ways to reply and get back into the match. For some they find a way back and get a goal of their own, while others surrender, and they continue to concede.
Here we take a look at the biggest wins in world cup history:
