Tournament data

This page contains a record of the penalty shoot-outs that have taken place in the World Cup and the four major continental tournaments: European Championships, Copa América, African Cup of Nations and the Asian Cup. Sadly we have a few gaps in the dataset. If you can help us fill in the blanks, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The underlined data links to YouTube or BBC video of the match or shoot-out. Just click the link. Sorry, but this doesn't work too well on dial-up/narrowband.
