    16 of the 68 games scored in the competition have come in the 85th minute or later.

    Andrei Arshavin is the man. When AA was suspended, Russia managed 11 SOG and 2 goals in two games. When AA returned to the lineup, the Russians doubled their offensive output with 20 SOG and 5 goals in two games (plus 30 min. of extra time). So AA basically doubled Russia’s shots-on-goal from 5 a game to 10 a game and goals per game from 1 per game to 2.5 per game. Impressive.

    Well the stat that stood out for me is the number of passes in the Russia v. Holland game. I’ve never really thought of it but 1,103 passes. That just floored me. I just have not spent any time wondering about how many passes. Now, with the added on time that could explain a lot, but over 1,000 passes. That is a lot of back and forth.
