World Cup: Team Territory Percentage

Our stats feed reports the relative territorial ownership by each team in each game. It seems to roughly match up with what I watched, but I can't say that I watched closely enough to say that it's correct:

Team Territory Shots For Shots Vs
France 55.8 20 7
Mexico 52.6 16 10
England 51.9 18 12
Ghana 51.7 15 14
Argentina 51.7 20 12
Slovenia 50.7 7 10
Greece 50.7 6 17
Australia 50.6 11 34
Germany 49.4 17 11
South Korea 49.3 17 6
Algeria 49.3 10 7
Nigeria 48.3 12 20
Serbia 48.3 14 15
United States 48.1 12 18
South Africa 47.4 10 16
Uruguay 44.2 7 20

Any opinions on the accuracy of this metric are greatly appreciated.
