This was a higher-event group than most we've seen so far, but without Portugal's 7-0 drubbing of North Korea, the overall shooting percentage would have been the lowest of the seven completed groups:

Passes/G Weighted Avg Shots/G Goals/G Shot%
Group G 383 82.76 21.6 13.08 1.42 10.83
Overall 353 75.65 21.4 10.97 1.07 9.71

Brazil was very dominant in terms of possession and passing - second-place Portugal, not-so-much:

Passes For Weighted Vs Weighted % of Pass
Brazil 1599 343.3 723 140.8 68.9
Portugal 1091 220.5 1207 263.9 47.5
Ivory Coast 1159 273.1 1089 208.1 51.6
North Korea 746 156.2 1576 380.3 32.1

North Korea is the only team in the tournament to get outshot by more than a 2-1 margin overall. They had the double misfortune of not being very good, and drawing two top teams in their group:

Shots F Goals Sh% Shots A Goals Sh%
Brazil 43 5 11.63 28 2 7.14
Portugal 43 7 16.28 34 0 0.00
Ivory Coast 39 4 10.26 25 3 12.00
North Korea 32 1 3.13 70 12 17.14
