It’s generally accepted that Bobby Moore was in a league of his own when it came to defending, but in this age of stats and instant replays, it’s never been known just exactly how good he was.
New stats have recently come to light detailing the role he played in England’s 1966 World Cup Final victory over Germany, and the results are even more astounding that we’d ever imagined.
Displaying a touch map from the final, we can see that not only did the former West Ham stopper chalk up two assists and enjoy a 93% successful pass rate, but he was quite literally all over the pitch, too.
Amazing for an old school defender.
