However, after The results of this study show that game result was not important in maintaining possession and getting the ball to a further analysis, the standard residuals revealed no significant relationships affected by passing accuracy. Factors, such as tactics, skill or goal scoring position (4). Research has highlighted the between the passes and the game outcome were observed. fitness may have a greater effect on the final outcome than 250 importance of accurate passes in creating goal scoring • A trend was indicated with 1.1% of passes in the winning game giving an accuracy. Performing an accurate pass is an essential skill in opportunities (2). Longer passing sequences has been shown to out result (SR=-1.6) soccer. Australia’s passing was quite accurate, with no result in more goals being scored (1) and teams that have 200 defenders present. However, when one defender was present Number of each pass possession of the ball for longer are more likely to win games 80 they were more likely to lose possession. Therefore, Australia (3).

There was a significant association between the result of the pass and the number of defenders present (χ2(6, N=922)= 29.918, There was then a trend to lose possession with two defenders. p<.001) (figure 2). Therefore, quick passes are recommended so to not allow time • 70.7% of passes with one defender resulted in losing possession (SR=2.4) for defenders to approach the ball. This study suggested that • 8.4% of passes with no defender resulted in losing possession (SR=-3.4) indicating it was less likely to occur field position and pressure had an effect on the accuracy of • 66% of passes with no defenders resulted in an accurate pass (SR=2.0) indicating higher accuracy with no defenders passes which can have a benefit in a game. METHODS • 25% of passes with two defenders resulted in lost possession (SR=1.6) The association between the field position and the result of 500 Performance analysis was conducted on the Australian the pass was significant (χ2(9, N=922)= 30.183, p=.000). 450 Socceroo’s passes in the three group matches at the 2010 FIFA • 35.7% of passes in the attacking box resulted in losing World Cup.
