Score! According to FIFA there are 265 million people who play the world’s number one sport. So you have the physical ability and ball sense to play Football, but do you have the game intelligence? Is your head mightier than the football boots at your feet?

Originally considered to be an impossible component to measure, a new study conducted has claimed that game intelligence isn’t a mind field but can in fact be measured. Game intelligence is the ability to “read” the play such as being in the right place at the right time. The scientists at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have assigned game intelligence to executive functions which includes mental processes such as planning and problem solving. The study that will be published in PLoS ONE, an online scientific journal, found that 57 elite footballers performed better in the executive function tests than the general population. The academics also found that the higher ranked footballers performed better in the executive function tests. The scientists are now hoping to study whether the executive functions can be improved by training. Tackle your Football with our football boots.
