Tackles

A tackle is defined as where a player connects with the ball in ground challenge where she successfully takes the ball away from the woman in possession. 

  • The tackled player must clearly be in possession of the ball before the tackle is made

A Tackle Won is deemed to be where the tackler or one of her team-mates regains possession as a result of the challenge, or that the ball goes out of play and is “safe.”

A Tackle Lost is where a tackle is made but the ball goes to an opposition player.

Clearance

This is a defensive action where a player kicks the ball away from his own goal with no intended recipient of the ball.

Block

This is where a player blocks a shot from an opposing player.

Interception

This is where a player intentionally intercepts a pass by moving into the line of the intended ball.

Recovery

This is where a player wins back the ball when it has gone loose or where the ball has been played directly to her.

Foul conceded

A foul conceded is defined as any infringement that is penalized as foul play by a referee. Offsides are not given as a foul conceded.

Foul won

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

Touches

A sum of all events where a player touches the ball, so excludes things like Aerial challenge lost or Challenge lost. 

Duels

A duel is an 50-50 contest between two players of opposing sides in the match, including aerial duels. For every Duel Won there is a corresponding Duel Lost depending on the outcome of the Duel.
