***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Inspired by FAS Research <http://www.fas.at/> visualization of pass-network of soccer matches, I tried to visualize Germany pass-network in its first match of 2010 FIFA World Cup against Australia. The data preparation are done by using Excel, and the visualization is using ORA. Some interesting stats: - 250 *passes from* defenders. They contributed 250 out of 456 passes (54.8%)! - *Passes to* defenders 45.9%, midfielders (Schweinsteiger, Khedira, Oezil and Gomez) 29.2%, forwards (Klose, Cacau, Podolski, Marin and Mueller) 22.3%.
