World Cup: Group D Passing and Shooting Stats

Getty Images

Group D had quite a bit more ball movement than the other groups, and more shots on goal, but ultimately no more goals than the cup-wide average:


Passes/G Weighted Avg Shots/G Goals/G Shot%
Group D 391 80.78 20.7 11.92 1.00 8.39
Overall 352 75 21.4 10.79 1.04 9.62

Germany had a high percentage of ball possession, while there was little to separate Ghana and Serbia:

Passes For Weighted Vs Weighted % of Pass
Germany 1509 315 1065 215.8 58.6
Ghana 1022 228.3 1141 229.7 47.2
Serbia 1117 222.9 1083 224.3 50.8
Australia 1038 203.2 1397 299.6 42.6

Interestingly, Ghana and Serbia played a very low-percentage game, neither getting nor allowing high-percentage chances:

Shots F Goals Sh% Shots A Goals Sh%
Germany 36 5 13.89 26 1 3.85
Ghana 41 2 4.88 29 2 6.90
Serbia 38 2 5.26 37 3 8.11
Australia 28 3 10.71 51 6 11.76
