1, 2 and 56372: Numbers from the U-17 World Cup

The round of 16 at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup was completed on Wednesday and the tournament now has its eight quarter-finalists -- Mali, Ghana, U.S., England, Spain, Iran, Germany and Brazil.

Here's a look at the key (and other) numbers from the 44 completed matches so far:   

5

With five goals apiece, France's Amine Gouiri and Mali's Lassana Ndiaye are the leading contenders for the tournament's Golden Boot award. With Gouiri out of the competition, Ndiaye will now fancy his chances of topping the scoring charts, especially if he can keep up his record of having scored at least one goal in each match played by his country.

151

The total number of goals scored, at an average of 3.43 goals per game. With eight matches still to be played, 2017 could see the record for most goals at an U-17 World Cup - 172, at the 2013 edition in UAE.

3

The number of teams from Europe in the quarter-finals. UEFA is the best-represented confederation of the five that have teams in the last eight. Germany, England and Spain have made the cut and, if all three win, it will be the first U-17 World Cup with three European teams in the last four.

56372

The highest attendance at this World Cup so far, which came on the final day of the group stage games in Kolkata, when England beat Iraq 4-0. England's round-of-16 win over Japan in Kolkata also saw a crowd in excess of 53,000, while the most people that came to watch India play was against Ghana, when 52,614 spectators were present at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

1

The fewest goals conceded in the U-17 World Cup, a feat jointly held by Ghana and Brazil, two teams with the fiercest attacking lineups. While Ghana conceded a late winner to Ayo Akinola of U.S. in their second group stage game, Brazil's Wesley conceded an own goal in the fifth minute of their tournament opener against Spain, which means they have now gone 355 minutes without conceding.

2000

Hadji Drame's goal for Mali in his team's round-of-16 match against Iraq - Mali won 5-1 - at the Nehru Stadium in Goa on October 17 was the 2000th goal in U-17 World Cup history. The journey from 1 to 1000 took 20 years, with Ryan Soroka of U.S. scoring the 1000th goal against Italy in 2005, while the next 1000 goals have come in 12 years.

2

The own goals scored by one player, Paraguay's Alexis Duarte, during his team's group stage match against New Zealand. The second, which came within 14 minutes of the first, put New Zealand 2-1 ahead in the first half. Paraguay scored three goals in the last quarter of an hour to pick up a 4-2 win, with effectively no goal scored by the New Zealand team in a six-goal thriller.
