How small is the margin of victory – and defeat in the World Cup? Not only were the Dutch unbeaten in qualifying and in this World Cup until today, but “Spain won its last four games by a score of 1-0 – a tight margin that characterized the month-long tournament. The World Cup featured a record 31 one-goal decisions out of 64 matches – four more than the previous high set in 2002, according to STATS LLC.”
