I just want to know if the goal scored by a player during shoot out is counted as goal scored in the tournament or not.
For example: the goal scored by Messi will be counted or not to become the highest goal scorer in the Fifa world cup.
No, it does not get counted. For instance, if we look at the goals scored by Messi during this world cup: He has a total of 4 goals till now.
1 vs Bosnia and Herzegovina (group stage)
1 vs Iran (group stage)
2 vs Nigeria (group stage)
The statistics from FIFA summarize it the best.
