Inspired by FAS Research 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%.
