How many World Cup finals have been decided by penalty kicks?

No World Cup final has ever been decided by penalty kicks. The closest it’s ever come is in the 1998 World Cup final when France beat Brazil 3-0.

That, however, was not the original scoreline. In fact, France didn’t even lead until the 54th minute of play when Zinedine Zidane scored a header off a corner kick from Emmanuel Petit.

Brazil didn’t even get its first shot on net until the 88th minute, when Ronaldo pulled one off from outside the box that was saved by Fabien Barthez.
