DATA FOR SPORT: FIFA WORLD CUP 2022
IT’S about to KICK OFF
Ok, so unless you’ve been living under a rock, there’s a whole lot of football (and by football we mean soccer) going on in Qatar right now.
It’s that time when all those rockstar football (soccer) stars gather and show us their elite skills. And then what happens is we all stay up very late, or wake up very early and get very excited and then inevitably get a little sad. Nonetheless, we’re pumped for what’s about to unfold!

We might not be in Qatar but closer to home, specifically RUBIX HQ, we’re getting in the spirit of the Soccer (or Football) World Cup. We’ve created a useful Tableau dashboard so you can really breakdown the who’s who, and what’s what, when the Socceroos take to the pitch in Qatar this week.

Let’s see. Find out who might kick the winning goal, we’ve put together who were the top goal scorers during the qualifiers. Is Australia just making up the numbers or could they go all the way? Check out our World Cup predictions for the answers. And what do the history books say? Who’s won the most World Cups? There’s a lot to explore!
Oh and in case you need a heads up, Australia is in Group D.
