Except for winning the maximum number of matches, including the final, Didier Deschamp’s team has not been the leader in any single aspect of the game. The other finalists, Croatia too don’t top in any single aspect of the games, reveals the report by the FIFA Technical Study Group for the FIFA World Cup in Russia.Believe it or not, Spain topped the table for the average ball possession and passes and success, 69% and 81% respectively as against 48% and 70% for champions France, but failed to reach even the quarter-finals. Germany, who made bypassed the opponents for maximum number of times (404) and made the most entries in the penalty area (61), too failed to make it to the last eight stage.

The study includes comprehensive statistics on the tournament and each individual match, team profiles and exclusive video footage to support the analysis.The TSG at Russia 2018 was headed by Carlos Alberto Parreira, who was joined by Marco van Basten (FIFA’s Chief Technical Development Officer), Emmanuel Amunike, Bora Milutinović, Andy Roxburgh and Pascal Zuberbühler, a Goalkeeping Specialist in FIFA’s Technical Development Division. It was overseen by FIFA’s Coaching & Player Development Department, which is led by Branimir Ujević.The key findings in the report include:> The team with the most average ball possession per match, Spain (69%), failed to progress from the round of 16, while champions France were 19th in the overall possession ranking.>Serbia were the hardest-running team at the tournament, covering an average of 113 km per game. By contrast, France were 28th in this respect, averaging 101 km per match.> Shooting efficiency from outside the penalty area improved dramatically: the average strike rate was a goal per 29 long-range attempts, compared to one in 42 at Brazil 2014.> At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, one in every 29 corners led to a goal, whereas the figure was 61 at South Africa 2010 and 36 at Brazil 2014. This trend of superior effectiveness continued through the knockout stage in Russia, where teams scored from one in every 31 corners compared to every 41 in Brazil.> We saw less of the so-called playmakers at this World Cup, perhaps as a result of the way teams played. However, there were still some outstanding individuals in this area. Paul Pogba of France excelled, but Luka Modrić stole the show.“As mentioned during the recent FIFA Football Conference in London, this is a new approach to the TSG report, which is a modern working tool providing relevant insight into where the game is going. It’s also another example of how FIFA is using technology to enhance football analysis,” said FIFA Deputy Secretary General (Football) Zvonimir Boban.“France were worthy winners. Under the steady stewardship of Didier Deschamps, who had a clear and precise vision of how to make the most of the players at his disposal and go all the way, they were the most settled and assured performers overall,” said Boban in the report forward.

DSME Terminates Drillship Contract

first_imgzoom South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) has cancelled a contract for construction of a drillship amid failure of a US owner to meet payment deadlines.The order was placed by Vantage Drilling in July 2013 and the expected delivery was scheduled for August 18th, 2015.The vessel, which was to be named Cobalt Explorer, was set to be built under the DSME Ultra Deepwater Drillship design, featuring 781’ x 137’ x 62′ in dimensions.“The ship owners did not implement the interim payment to us, hence, on the basis of Article 11, the contract shall be terminated due to contract breach on the part of the owner,” DSME disclosed in a stock exchange filing.The drillship is said to be worth around KRW 703 billion, almost USD 600 million (593.3 million).The move comes following Vantage Drilling’s announcement dated on August 13, 2015, on the termination of the contract for the construction and sale of the Cobalt Explorer.The company said it would seek to recover all funds paid to the shipyard totaling approximately USD 59.5 million plus contractual interest and any other amounts due under applicable law.According to Vantage, the shipyard may seek to challenge the company’s ability to terminate the contract pursuant to arbitration provisions in the contract, which would result in a delay in recovery of any amounts that might be due to us under the contract.” In addition, the shipyard itself may seek to terminate the contract for our failure to make the second milestone payment for the Cobalt Explorer under the contract. Such termination by the shipyard might entitle the shipyard to retain all supplies delivered to the shipyard and all milestone and other payments made by us to the shipyard to date, and to elect to sell the vessel and claim any deficiency in proceeds against us,” Vantage added.“We may consider future alternatives with the shipyard for the delivery of the Cobalt Explorer. However, there can be no assurances that the terms and conditions of any such alternatives will be acceptable to us or the shipyard,” the company concluded.
