Most Important Player in the Spanish Team from 2008 to 2012 tournaments

leave a comment »

Below is the rank of importance among Spanish players in the EURO 2008, FIFA World Cup 2010, and EURO 2012. The rank is based on the number of touches in the game (i.e. the number of outgoing AND incoming passes of each player). The calculation is done in R, thanks to Tore Opsahl’s tnet package.


Note: In the tnet package, the alpha that I used was 0.5.
