World Cup 2014: Numbers & Fancy Stats

Small samples will be an issue for the entirety of the 2014 World Cup. Teams will play a minimum of three games and a potential maximum of seven games. So take these numbers with a spoon of salt and understand that I am only publishing these numbers due to boredom. None of the following stats really mean much over a three game sample.

TSR = shots for/(shots for+shots against)

SoTR = shots on target for/(SoT for+SoT against)

Fenwick = unblocked shots for/(unblocked shots for+unblocked shots against)

Scoring% = goals for/shots on target for*100

Save% = 100-Goals against/Shots on target against*100

PDO = Luck. Just kidding, folks. Scoring%+Save%

Overall = all game events

Close = game events that take place when the game is withing a goal (-1, tied, +1).

Tied = game events that take place when the game is Tied and tied only.
