Inserting a single DB line within a foreach statement

Hi Experts,
I have a form where members can upload a file, I have created a parser to grab the information from the file perfectly. My problem is, my data is currently being displayed via a foreach statement (code in below snippet).

Rather than echoing the data to the screen, I want to save the data in my database as a single line only to save from having to process the file each time. If I put an insert within the foreach statement its obviously going to create more than 1 DB insert.

The values being displayed on the page here is what i need to catch in a single statement:-
echo 'player with no team: <br />';
echo 'player in team '.$k.'<br />';
echo 'Player Name:'.$player['name'].'; IP: '.$player['ip'].'; Army: '.$n->getArmyName($player['army']).'

Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance
$n = new $classname();

    if (!$n->parse($_FILES['some_identifier']['tmp_name'])) {

        die('can not read it somehow');

    }

    $teams = $n->getTeams();

    foreach($teams as $k => $team) {

        if ($k == 0) { // team 0 store the player without team

            echo 'player with no team: <br />';

        } else {

            echo 'player in team '.$k.'<br />';

        }

        foreach ($team as $k_p => $player) {

            echo 'Player Name:'.$player['name'].'; IP: '.$player['ip'].'; Army: '.$n->getArmyName($player['army']).'<br />';

        }

You can make it as this (if I get the meaning right ;-))


$sql="INSERT INTO table_name (field1, field2, field3) VALUES (";
 

//make your first datacollect

$sql.=$datacollect.", ";
 

//make your second datacollect

$sql.=$datacollect.", ";
 

//make your third datacollect

$sql.=$datacollect."); ";

and if you need more inserts in one line you can do like this:

$sql = "INSERT INTO table_name (field1, filed2, field3)
  VALUES
  ($data1, $data2, $data3),
  ($data1, $data2, $data3),
  ($data1, $data2, $data3),
  ($data1, $data2, $data3)";
