"Football incorporates periods of high-intensity efforts (e.g. closing the ball down, getting into the box to convert a cross) interspersed with periods of lower-intensity exercise (jogging, walking, recovery)!  High intensity efforts only account for a small proportion​ of the total game time, BUT such periods are instrumental in determining the path of the ball and thus the outcome of the game!"  (Scott Russell)
