Code Explanation:

The said query in SQL that selects a list of all countries along with the count of player bookings for each country from the tables 'soccer_country' and 'player_booked'.
The JOIN keyword with ON clause is used to specify the join condition where the country ID from the 'soccer_country' table matches the team ID from the 'player_booked' table.
The GROUP BY clause groups the results by country name. This means that the COUNT(*) function will count the number of player bookings for each country.
The query is using the ORDER BY clause to sort the results in descending order based on the count of player bookings.
