worldfootballR: Functions to Extract and Clean World Football (Soccer) Data

A set of functions to allow users to obtain clean and tidy football (soccer) game, team and player data. Data is collected from a number of popular sites, including 'FBref'<>, transfer and valuations data from 'Transfermarkt'<> and shooting location data from 'Understat'<>. It gives users the ability to access data more efficiently, rather than having to export data tables to files before being able to complete their analysis.
