Check out this analysis of the celebration of each of the World Cup's 167 goals

Monday July 14th, 2014

The Wall Street Journal has released an infographic tracking the celebrations for each of the World Cup's 167 goals this year, and the results are pretty interesting.

Although the ever popular "arms-out run" snagged first place for most used celebration, it appeared just 38 times, meaning this year's tourney was as creative as it was exciting.

Some of the most notable celebrations include Columbia's team dance and Costa Rica's Joel Campbell pretending to be pregnant with the ball under his shirt.

Using the corner flag as a prop is still disappointingly low though. FIFA needs to start a campaign to get that number up before the tournament heads to Russia in 2018.
