Abstract

The beach soccer is currently one of the fastest developing sports in the world. It is characterized as a modality of intermittent character of high intensity, requiring high demand of energy and of the anaerobic system with intensities above 90% of maximum heart rate. The objective of this study is: (i) to analyze and quantify in absolute and percentage terms, the incidence of goals in Beach Soccer FIFA World Cups matches, checking in which periods of games the goals happen; (ii) to identify the team that scored the first goal of the game and check the final result obtained by this team: win, draw or defeat; (iii) to relate the results to the physical performance, technical, tactical and psychological. We analyzed all the matches in 5 Beach Soccer World Cup organized by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), totaling 148 matches. The data were collected at the FIFA website database through the official summaries of the games. According to the data of the goals timing, it was found that most of the goals (37.21%) are scored in the last period of games. Regarding the influence of the first goal for the final result of the match, the team that scores the first goal of the game features average probability of winning approximately 60%. Thus, it is suggested that the higher incidence of goals in the 3rd period of the games is associated mainly to the interaction of physical and psychological factors. Regarding the influence of the first goal for the final result, it is believed that the psychological aspect appears to interfere with greater relevance.
