    But England also had opponents like Trinidad&Tobago, Kuwait... and I honestly cannot remember a WC or Euro game where 3Lions created a lot of chances. As they didn't in Podgorica yesterday.

    How are minutes counted btw? Is stoppage time included? Makes a big difference...

    I refrain from listing the assists because OPTA and planetworldcup contradict a bit.

    No I just meant that I used ELO avg. postition as a method to estimate strength of competition, but this wasn't for the World Cup. It was a for int. games goalscoring.

    Sorry it would be useless for your thread, I just wanted to aware you on the method you might use.

    The 32 teams era saw many weak opponents so others met opponents from the T&T level too (and I bet that some like Saudi Arabia, Iran etc. are even a level lower as T&T in 2006, who were in top-shape TBH). On average, England has still tough draws from an overall historical perspective.

    They met Kuwait in 1982 but Czechoslovakia, France and England fought in the 1st group stage for two spots to progress. Kuwait was a 'filler' but the composition of those other three teams was only remotely matched by the group with USSR, Brazil and Scotland (based on ELO rating - England #5, Czechoslovakia #13 and France # 15). Three opponents within a range of 10 places fought for two spots, not seen in another group.

    Lets look at the 16 teams era, when England qualified. 16 teams were divided over four groups.

    In 1966 two opponents were much weaker as the 14 others: Switzerland (the weakest of all) and North Korea.
    Those weren't assigned to a group with England.

    In 1970 again three stood out in terms of weakness. Morocco, Israel and El Salvador. The 13 others were much stronger. Neither of them were assigned to a group with England. On the contrary, they were in a group with three top-20 nations.
    [though, some key players of England were arguably past their peak level despite the traditional overestimation]

    Just an example.

    But no problem if you see it different. Peace.

    My remark wasn't specifically about England, it was more on the "British school" (high intensity, high work rate, lots of vertical and long balls, etc). Checking your interesting stats, it's remarkable that "small" nations like Belgium and Portugal (10m noses) have each three men among the best creators, while England, Scotland, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Norway and Sweden - all nations with a "British style" - make altogether two: Hoddle and Strachan. Where are all the Beckhams, Scholes, Robsons, Keegans, Wilkinses, Dalglishes and Warks: people supposed to have been great stars of the game?

    Thanks for clarification.

    That's why I am not so "crazy" about the stats that some made out them to be. SOmetimes very distorted information . For example"
    1- I know FIFA (rule of thumb) did not count PK earned as an "assist", but that was a clear case of "chance" creation, not for "other player" but for himself
    2- Same goes to a "solo run" - I don't think they are counted as "chance creating", but like above, that would be also a chance creation for oneself.
    3- In the case of 6 or 10 passes around the box before the team score, who would get the "chance creating" count? (Like Carlos Alberto goal of the century in WC70: Pele, or Rivelino or Gerson or Jarzinho? )

    Go back to definition of "chance creating" = an act (of a player) to open up a channel , a path so his team would have a "chance" to score goal!

    This was the 'naked' data. I will now tighten the conditions. I start with dropping out the players who made less than 10 shots in a World Cup tournament. Players in bold text made more than 15 shots, which makes the 'shot accuracy' percentage more reliable.

    1966 - 1978 - minimum of 2 goals scored and 10 shots
    1982 - 2010 - minimum of 3 goals scored and 10 shots

    I hope I do it the right way, calculations are correct but hopefully it is the right measurement. Anyway, in order to provide some footing for comparing various World Cups with each other, I calculated the mean and median for each World Cup between 1966 and 1978 ( 16 teams era ). Again, I only included players with five or more created chances so it is not the entire distribution.

    1966:
    Median: 2,40 chances created per 90 minutes (67 players – 6 games)
    Mean: 2,37

    1970:
    Median: 2,39 (80 players – 6 games)
    Mean: 2,57

    1974:
    Median: 2,00 (76 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2,05

    1978:
    Median: 2,00 (71 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2,09


    The numbers are correct but if this makes sense then I do it for every World Cup... Feedback is appreciated.

    Very good info .

    My 2 cents ...

    1- a meaningful data would take an average shots per game, and a good number of games played/
    for example, we can not take data from a player with only 3 games, but atleast 4,5

    2- I can not help but I think you're confusing in your data. there are 2 different things in shooting:
    - Shot accuracy = shots on target/ number of shots
    - Successful rate = goals/shots on target
    example' Some player (like Tevez Torres..) might shoot more accurate (= high shot accuracy) but lack of power or precision to turn to goal (= lower successful rate). Other players (like CR7, Balotelli) might have low accuracy, but higher successful rate.

    OK, if I'm messing with statistics I'll be glad to hear it but of all World Cup players since 1966 who had at least 5 created chances in a tournament (so made a significant contribution in creating direct danger, not caused by mere 'luck') this are the median and mean for each edition:

    1966:
    Median: 2.40 chances created per 90 minutes (67 players – 6 games)
    Mean: 2.37 chances created per 90 minutes

    1970:
    Median: 2.39 (80 players – 6 games)
    Mean: 2.57

    1974:
    Median: 2.00 (76 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.05

    1978:
    Median: 2.00 (71 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.09

    1982
    Median: 2.00 (99 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.19

    1986:
    Median: 1.97 (84 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.10

    1990:
    Median: 1.71 (76 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 1.85

    1994:
    Median: 1.82 (91 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.04

    1998:
    Median 2.03 (104 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.20

    2002:
    Median: 2.00 (94 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.18

    2006:
    Median: 1.94 (106 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.31 (without outlier 2.17)

    2010:
    Median: 1.99 (98 players – 7 games)
    Mean: 2.08


    The outlier of 2006 is obviously Ricardinho (Brazil) who created 6 chances in the 26 minutes he was allowed to play. With an average of 17.31 chances per 90 minutes he is an heavy outlier across all World Cups (#2 is Rivera in 1966 with 6.50 created chances per 90 minutes).
    Therefore, I also noted the mean when this outlier is dropped from the data-set.

    Overall not a surprise though to see the 1990WC at the bottom and the great 1970 edition on top of all.
