UEFA EURO2016 TOP 10 PLAYERS AFTER TWO ROUNDS

UEFA has released its Top 10 players after two Rounds of the Euro2016 Championship being played in France. There are four Spanish National Team players within the Top 10: Pique, Sergio Ramos, Andres Iniesta & Alvaro Morata

UEFA Top 10 players after 2 rounds

UEFA measures there "Top 10" with an algorithm that takes into account data, statistics & players state of form from the start of the year until now. A method heavily criticised in the first round top 10 list when Spaniard Andres Iniesta was not included. Obvious fail, as the FC Barcelona midfielder played a "blinder" in the first round & is currently the tournaments best player.

So was the criticism that UEFA as apparently re-tuned the "algorithm" & now has included Andres Iniesta.   

While "Big Data" is all the rage it is obvious that the "machine" lacks the knowledge or the human appreciation for "Football beauty". However, this may be the way for many Sports including Football.
