Refereeing at the 2018 #WorldCup (23 games)

The Match Reports from the official FIFA 2018 World Cup website provide excellent sources of secondary data.

I have used these data to profile ball in play times and fouls identified by referees. I have used the ggplot library in RStudio to do this. I used geom_label_repel() for my text labels. I have used a Loess Regresssion to smooth the data series.

I have posted my code and other material in a GitHub repository RefereeingWC18.
