## SQL soccer Database: Joins Exercise-34 with Solution

34. From the following table, write a SQL query to find out the player who was selected for the ‘Man of the Match’ award in the finals of EURO cup 2016. Return player name, country name.

Sample table: soccer_country

Sample table: match_mast

Sample table: player_mast

Sample Solution:

SQL Code:

``````SELECT a.player_name, b.country_name
FROM player_mast a
JOIN match_mast c ON c.plr_of_match=a.player_id
AND c.play_stage='F'
JOIN soccer_country b
ON a.team_id=b.country_id;
```
```

Sample Output:

``` player_name | country_name
-------------+--------------
Pepe        | Portugal
(1 row)
```

Code Explanation:

The said query in SQL that retrieves information about the player of the match in the final stage of soccer matches, including their name and country from the tables player_mast, match_mast, and soccer_country.
The JOIN clause joins the 'player_mast' table alias as 'a' with the 'match_mast' table alias as 'c' based on the common column "plr_of_match" in 'c' and "player_id" in 'a'. Additionally, only rows where the "play_stage" column in 'c' has the value of 'F' will be joined. Then, the resulting table is joined with the 'soccer_country' table alias as 'b' based on the common column "team_id" in 'a' and "country_id" in 'b'.
