Football statistics

Interception – This is where a player reads an opponent’s pass and intercepts the ball by moving into the line of the intended pass.

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.
