He made ten attempts and met his goal on one occasion: the percentage of success of the 10% It reflects its inefficiency.
A team of soccer , meanwhile, suffers from its inefficiency if you handle the ball during 80% of the game and your players kick 14 times at the goal without scoring goals. If his opponent kicks once and scores, the team that dominated the possession and attacked the most, ended up losing.
