Here's a summary of passing in games that didn't end in a tie so far:
|% Pass||52.5||% Pass||47.5|
The winning team has completed 80.3% of their passes to the losers 77.0%, which I don't think tells us very much. However, the winning teams attempted 10% more passes than the losers, which probably does mean something (more on that later.)
Individual passing is dominated by South Africa, who have played two games:
|Siboniso||Pa Gaxa||South Africa||113|
South Africa significantly outpassed Uruguay in their loss, for what that's worth; against Mexico, they were outpassed 2-1.
