World Cup 2022 stars including Luka Modric taking advantage of new tech to track match stats just MINUTES after games | The Sun

WORLD CUP stars have taken advantage of new technology to discover exactly how they have performed – before they leave the Qatar 2022 stadium.

More than 400 players at the tournament signed up for the Fifa Player App to get the rundown.


The application uses limb-tracking technology – which enables the new semi-automated offside system.

And it has enabled players to access information within minutes of the final whistle.

World Cup stars now have access to stats including distance covered and passing figures, as well as video clips.

High-profile players to take advantage have included Croatia schemer Luka Modric and Switzerland’s former Liverpool star Xherdan Shaqiri.
