Can the superstar-reliant squads succeed at Euro 2016? [Sports Illustrated]
Ben Lyttleton discusses whether teams that are more reliant on one player can succeed at Euro 2016, using STATS data when viewing performances during qualifying.
“Bale scored seven goals out of Wales’s 11 in qualifying, an incredible 63% of the team’s total. The top scorer in qualifying was Poland’s Robert Lewandowski, but his 13 goals (six of which were against Gibraltar) out of 33 made up 39% of the total.”
