Worldcup 2010 knockout sankeyfied

Inspired by the diagram on the knockout stage of the 2010 FIFA worldcup, I just had the idea to “sankeyfy” it. The width of the Sankey arrow represents the number of goals scored. Penalty goals are shown in different color (brown), but to scale.

Now I have to run for the Brazil-Netherlands match….

Will update this diagram after the quarter-finals…

    Hi Phineas,
    nice diagram indeed. If you complete it you will see that Spain’s road to success is a rather boring one (a thin line of 1:0 wins) while Germany was pretty inefficient (big lines, no gain).
