The following is a list of goalscorers in the FIFA World Cup finals. Only goals scored during regulation or extra time are included. Any goals scored during the penalty shoot-out are excluded. As of the 2022 final, sixty-two individuals have scored the total of eighty goals in all of the finals history. Twelve players have scored multiple goals in the finals. Five players have done so via a penalty kick. Mario Mandžukić was the first player to score an own goal in a final, as well as the first to follow it up with a goal at the opponent's net. He scored the opening and closing goal of the final in 2018. Geoff Hurst and Kylian Mbappé are the only men's players to score a hat trick in a final. Only two players have scored in two consecutive FIFA World Cup finals: Vavá and Mbappé. Only two scorers, Pelé and Mbappé, have scored in a final goal as teenagers.[1] Mbappé is also the only player to score multiple goals in a losing final.

ESPN featured a documentary on the 34 finals goalscorers who were alive before the 2010 final.[2]
