Each and every one of the 32 teams at the 2014 World Cup finals has now featured at least twice in at a summer showpiece which has surpassed even the most optimistic fans' expectations already, with a whopping 94 goals scored at the halfway stage of the tournament.

That mark absolutely smashes the previous best for a tournament since the competition expanded to its current format, while also beating the goal count after 32 games in each of the last seven finals stretching back to the 1982 finals in Spain.

With goals flying in left, right and centre the opportunity is there for star strikers to cement their legacy and send records tumbling, which has helped to create a string of unique statistics which will stand the test of time long after this amazing South American showpiece has wrapped up.

Germany striker Miroslav Klose has of course written his name into the record books after scoring his 15th goal in World Cup finals, stretching back a quite remarkable four tournaments and 12 years.

Klose isn't alone though in becoming a World Cup history boy, with three other legends of the game and one infamous team performance standing out in our countdown of the early tournament record-breakers, Kriss Akabusi eat your heart out.

Can you guess which five moments of World Cup history already deserve your attention, and which genuine stars are lucky enough to be included?
