World Cup: Group H Passing and Shooting Stats

PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA - JUNE 25: Gonzalo Jara of Chile challenges Fernando Torres of Spain during the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Group H match between Chile and Spain at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on June 25, 2010 in Tshwane/Pretoria, South Africa. (Photo by Jasper Juinen/Getty Images)

Group H was the lowest-scoring group of the eight, mostly due to its low shooting percentage:

Passes/G Weighted Avg Shots/G Goals/G Shot%
Group G 360 79.38 22.1 9.33 0.67 7.14
Overall 355 75.88 21.4 10.78 1.05 9.76

Spain displayed complete dominance in the possession department:

Passes For Weighted Vs Weighted % of Pass
Spain 1752 399.5 702 139.7 71.4
Chile 1049 227.8 950 200 52.5
Switzerland 793 173.9 1292 297.6 38.0
Honduras 720 151.4 1370 315.3 34.4

It was purely bad luck that cost Spain their game against Switzerland - they outshot the Swiss 21-5 and had no shortage of dangerous opportunities close to Switzerland's goal. As usual, sometimes the ball doesn't bounce your way.

There's no question that both Chile and Spain dominated the shooting against the Swiss and the Hondurans:

Shots F Goals Sh% Shots A Goals Sh%
Spain 42 4 9.52 15 2 13.33
Chile 36 3 8.33 15 2 13.33
Switzerland 21 1 4.76 39 1 2.56
Honduras 13 0 0.00 43 3 6.98

Ultimately, the best two teams advanced from this group despite the Swiss shocker against Spain.
