    Dunga is particularly impressive, being in tackles, recoveries or interceptions. Not only that, but he was great in 2 WC (94 and 98).

    Still struggle to understand what they exactly mean with a recovery vs interception.

    Also strange that Dunga wasn't highly rated in Italy (except first two seasons) or during his days at VFB Stuttgart. See dbscalcio.it and kicker.

    And during 1998WC he was for three years playing in Japan!

    I agree that their criterias are sometimes unclear.
    Looking at this, Dunga was no less important than Romario/Bebeto/Ronaldo/Rivaldo despite being in their shadows.
    Mauro Silva was also quite good.

    Anyway looking at these stats it's virtually impossible to make an all-time (or dare I say post 1966) WC defensive unit (ie back-four + defensive midfield pair). You would usually say Beckenbauer, Moore, Maldini, maybe Maldini, Baresi or Scirea but there are actually other serious or even better contenders. The most obvious one pick might actually and surprinsingly be... Dunga.

    ...On the other hand 'big names' like Gentile, Cafu or Roberto have stats that don't look that great IMHO.

    Maldini neither for someone who won almost the Ballon d'Or solely for his WC94 performance alone. At least, all the plaudits he received that year was based on the WC.
    With people overlooking that he escaped a red card and multiple match ban against Nigeria.

    Cannavaro also overrated it seems but 1) not every WC is the same and 2) it is in some ways problematic to individualize and transcode a team sport in numbers.

    Not saying this a 100% credible source (far from it) but this one ranks Dunga on a shared 27th place and a 10th place among midfielders at 1998WC. Very noteworthy discrepancy between stats and perception.
    http://www.kicker.de/news/fussball/...ft/1998/topspieler-der-saison-mittelfeld.html

    Same with other sources (France Football etcetera). Dunga was shortlisted for Golden Ball though.

    I'm not particularly fond of Cannavaro but he appears to be very high in some areas though. He did very little except defending (zero chance created for and an awful passing accuracy in the opposite half for example), but he was extremely reliable in the defensive job, more than I thought before I saw these stats actually.
    Maldini was excellent for sure in WC94, but not better than other fullbacks like Vogts, Krol, Lizarazu or Thuram.
    I agree that these stats are useful as they allow us to put our perceptions into perspective.

    I calculated tackle + duels + air duel % - Marco Materazzi & Laurent Blanc were the once with more than 10 per game and over 80% wins.

    Also a lot of Germans and Italians among the best tacklers ;)

    Some categories have a treshold (crosses, tackles) while others not (aerial duels). Not every category is included either in this index (which is defensible but this index includes all available passing indicators while not all tackles indicators - it does not include the 'foul' indicators) and some players are not included in the file posted on page 1. Simoes for example is not included in the file while he had the most chances created at WC66 (31 chances in 540 minutes; 6 games).

    Some things to realize.

    I'm sure you will like this ;) A British pundit team with Don Revie and Billy Wright had this as all star team for this WC:

    Banks; Sanchis, Schulz, Moore, Marzolini; Beckenbauer, Charlton; Voronin, Bene, Pelé, Eusebio

    Associated Press:

    Banks; D. Santos, Schulz, Moore, Marzolini; Beckenbauer, Charlton, Voronin; Bene, Eusebio, Simoes

    According to France Football the best was Charlton followed by Beckenbauer, Eusebio and Voronin.

    It was done rather quickly. I didn't have the nerves to include every category offered. Simoes was not part of the file I downloaded on 20 December. I will have to add him later. Thanks for pointing out.

    To amend my earlier observations about chances created per minute:

    Simoes would edge Cruyff, with one chance created in just under 17.5 minutes on average.

    But...Rivera has a better rate in 1966 than in 1970 even (which means in two seperate tournaments he created a chance in under 20 minutes on average) but again didn't play many minutes - this time largely due to Italy not getting far - he created one chance in about every 13 minutes in '66. Sandro Mazzola's rate is pretty good too (about 25 mins IIRC) so it'd be interesting to know how good some of these Italian chances created were!

    Perico Leon of Peru at 1970WC has more too. 18 chances in 297 minutes.

    But as said, OPTA has revealed too that in the category of 'open play chances' Cruijff has the most per minute (one in every 22 minutes). Leon and Simoes edges him thanks to their set piece ability though Cruijff also took set pieces at 1974WC of course (maybe just not as good?).

    Eusebio has often praised Simoes I remember now btw.

    Funny is that some more disagreement existed at the 1970WC. For example, Associated Press consulted more than 20 journalists and came with this team:
    Banks; Ancheta, Pena, Moore, Faccheti; Van Moer, Beckenbauer; Rivelino, Pelé, Müller, Jairzinho

    Another agency DPA consulted more than 40 journalists with some big differences.

    Banks; C. Alberto, Shesternev, Moore, Cooper; Beckenbauer, Gerson; Rivelino, Müller, Pelé, Jairzinho

    Unfortunately I'm not aware of a vote about 'MVP' of the tournament, Golden Ball or so.

    Yes I know that Simoes was/is not part of the file, that is what I meant. Sorry if that is not clear.

    I looked at how much points Maradona1986 would end in this way.

    Note: only 6 forwards of 1986WC included in the file (9 forwards of 1966WC included in file).

    Number passes - 1 among forwards
    Passing accuracy - 5
    Passing acc opponents half - 5
    Duels won % - 1
    Aerial duels won % - 3
    Recoveries - 2
    Tackles won % (min 5 tackles) - 1
    Clearances - N/A
    Blocks - N/A
    Interceptions - 2
    Goals - 2
    Shot accuracy - 3
    Successful crosses % (min 5 crosses) - 2
    Assists - 1
    Chances created - 1

    5 + 1 + 1 + 5 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 4 + 4 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 5 = 49 points

    Having a quick look for Italy games from 1966 on Youtube, I found this also - there is a second video for the second half I think by the same user:

    I'll probably go back and watch it myself, and it'll be interesting to inspect Simoes as well as the players the video maker picks out Eusebio and Albert who btw created a chance every 30-35 mins in the tournament though he certainly had a hand starting moves from deep at times as shown to great effect vs Brazil.

    Anyway I did find a highlight video for North Korea vs Italy and there are a couple of good chances created by Rivera, as well as a trademark dribble and shot by him that was well saved. I guess Rivera did take a few set pieces, but I suppose it could be that he played too few minutes if there was a limit set by Opta when judging chances per miute (if not then a greater share of his chances created must have been from set pieces as compared to Cruyff too, in both '66 and '70):
