Football statistics

Yellow Card – A yellow card in football is used by the referee to caution a football player for unsporting behavior, consistently infringing the rules of the game, dissent, or delaying the restart of the game.

The success of a football team depends a lot on the individual players making up that team. However, not all positions on a team are the same and there are significant differences in the style of game being played in different leagues. It is therefore important to take into account both the position and the league when evaluating individual football players.
