Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) releases its analysis of the recent UEFA European Championship in France, which compares the tournament to the Socceroos and the domestic A-League competition.

By identifying key benchmarks in team profiles, tactical trends and refereeing, Australian football can better understand and measure how our local game is tracking next to the elite echelons of football.

Broadly, the report’s findings suggest stark differences between the styles of play witnessed in France and in Australia, with the A-League providing more open and attacking football.

The PFA believes a better informed game leads to more impactful football education, analysis and decision-making.
