Data-Driven Evaluation of Football Players’ Skills

This provides a generic methodology for measuring any footballers’ on-the-ball skill levels with a sample analysis of the shooting skill.



In my third post for Towards Data Science - “Data-Driven Evaluation of Football Players’ Skills” I'm suggesting a generic methodology for measuring any footballers’ on-the-ball skill levels with a sample analysis of the shooting skill. Using StatsBomb data and with the power of Streamlit, we were able to translate complex models and statistics into an understandable interactive beautiful UI.

This post concludes an end-to-end data science journey to create a holistic representation of the language of football. This goal is yet to be accomplished, but in the continuing quest for achieving it, we’ve just made it through to base camp.
