Football statistics

Foul Won – A foul won is defined as where a football player wins a free kick or penalty for their team after being fouled by an opposing football player.

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.
