U.S. and German World Cup comparison

After two games played in Group G, the U.S. team is well-positioned to advance to the World Cup’s round of 16. A win or a draw Thursday in the final game of the group stage against Germany would send the Americans through, and even a loss would not necessarily mean elimination. Here is a statistical look at both teams’; performances through their first two games. The individual stats show each player’s top running speed, the percentage of passes each completed and the amount of time each player spent in the opponent’s half of the field.
