- Shots on/off target (by player and team)
- Passes successful/unsuccessful (by player and team)
- Duels won/lost (by player and team)
- Fouls won/lost (by player and team)
- And many, many more
And every bit of data has a time stamp and an x/y co-ordinate, allowing for detailed analysis using touchmaps, heatmaps and average position information.
