A metric quantifying how many meters a player is taking the ball forward .
For every successful forward pass, wyscout calculates how close this pass is to the opponent goal. For example, if a pass started at the center of the field and arrived to the edge of the penalty area successfully, this pass would have brought the ball forward 36 meters.
The same logic also applies to runs, i.e. successful ball control over distance from the same player. The difference between the distance of the starting point of the run to the opponent goal and the end point of the run to the opponent goal is saved as the run progression.
Note that only succesful forward passes and forward runs are included in this description, so the metric would be always equal or more than zero.
