The group stage is complete in what has been a wild World Cup that has gifted us with goals scored left, right and center. Fourteen braces have been scored, and the Golden Boot race is getting tight as Lionel Messi of Argentina joined the ranks after the 2-1 win over Australia in the knockout stage.

The clean sheet leaderboard is hard to separate while Harry Kane has regained his spot atop the assist leaderboard with three. Nayef Aguerd has also taken the dubious record of scoring the first own goal of this World Cup but was quickly joined by Manuel Neuer as Germany crashed out at the group stage despite defeating Costa Rica 4-2.

Throughout the tournament, we will be tracking some of the most notable stats in Qatar, including the race for the Golden Boot and leaders for assists and clean sheets.
