VARIOUS PENALTY SHOOT-OUT RECORDS
The team shooting first has won 15 of the 26 shoot-outs, or 57.7% of them.

He saved three against Yugoslavia in the quarterfinal in 1990 and two more in the semifinal against Italy, making his total to five. Claudio Taffarel of Brazil has also saved five, but two of them went over the crossbar, both in the final of 1994. He saved two more against the Netherlands in the semifinal in 1998. Harald Schumacher of West Germany is in third with four saves, with two against both France (1982) and Mexico (1986).
