My analysis uses an 11 point criteria + 4 top secret ones including strength, strength endurance, body composition, cardio, flexibility, stamina, speed, agility, coordination, power, and balance. Many sports teams underestimate the tremendous importance of physical fitness and are using outdated training methodology. As promised, here is my analysis of the teams one day in advance of their matches in order to see if I can predict the fittest team. Again, I am not a football/soccer expert, nor do I follow the sport.
An average football/soccer player runs, on average, 7-9 miles a game. An average referee runs as much as 12 miles per game. Just being able to do this is not enough!
- France vs. Uruguay: After detailed observation of both teams, I have calculated 55%-45% advantage France. The difference is based on France’s better power, agility, coordination, stamina, and speed. I must say that Uruguay has better fitness results than many teams in the Quarterfinals.
- Brazil vs. Belgium: 52%-48% advantage Brazil. This is based on Brazil scoring higher in speed, agility, coordination, stamina and Belgium scoring higher in strength, strength endurance.
