Did you know referees were not a part of soccer matches until 1881, and players used to make the calls?
Britain is the birthplace of modern football, the world’s renowned sport. Soccer maintains health and fitness by increasing cardiovascular health, building bone strength & flexibility, lowering body fat, and more. There was a time when soccer statistics meant goals, assists, corner kicks, and fouls. Not so anymore. Advanced soccer metrics help analyze individuals & teams with their strengths and weaknesses. Stats help coaches re-adjust their focus and fine-tune the skills of players. It is when an app comes in handy.
