When the World Cup kicks off in Qatar on November 20 fans can expect a flurry of stats and match footage on social media and Fifa is hoping that includes data and content from a new player app. Fifa said on Friday that all players at the finals will be able to browse their performance data on a purpose-built app developed by the governing body which allow footballers of all 32 teams access to analysis and information. The app has been created after feedback from players, through the players union FIFPRO, and the data will be synched with video of the action to allow quick assessment of key moments.


While such data and metrics are widely available to players with the top clubs and national sides, who employ teams of analysts, the app will ensure squads with fewer resources also have access.
