The analysis of physical, technical-tactical and other activities related to the structure of football game has become, with the development of modern technology, an essential aspect of preparing the team for achieving favorable results. With the advent of software packages for analysis, it has become possible to quantify, in a very accessible way, the performance of individuals in a game, as well as the effect of the whole team. The problem treated in this study is the impact of specific technical-tactical elements on the successful implementation of attacks in the football game. The focus of this paper is split into two thematic areas. The first is establishing the determinants of the efficiency of shots on goal in the World Cup in South Africa in 2010. The second thematic unit is linked to the comparative analysis of the determinants of efficiency of shots on goal between the winning and losing teams in the aforementioned championship. The task of this paper is to determine which of the observed variables represent a successful predictor of efficiency in the realization phase of attack. This experimental research of transversal character was conducted on a sample of 16 teams at the aforementioned championship. All data collected through the research were analyzed using the descriptive and comparative statistics, upon which valid conclusions based on the results were extracted.
