World cup 2006. An Analysis.

  1. 1. Soccer World Cup Analysis Soccer World Cups 2006 - 2002 Since we are getting closer and closer to the next Soccer World Cup (2010), I thought I could analyse the soccer data of the participant teams. Data analysis can definitely not predict who the next winner is going to be, since I do not have the data of the participant teams of the last 4 years. What is available is the data of the 2 past world cups (2002 and 2006) at the FIFA web site http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/matches/ index.html. We will try to analyze those data and mark each team's performance at the 2 last soccer world cups. Created with KNIME Report Designer. Provided by KNIME.com GmbH, Zurich, Switzerland
