Wouldnt surprise me if 10+ of those 17 shots were very good scoring chances. Bragin's teams always preached possession until a sure moment instead of pulling the trigger from anywhere. Hey it works for Russia- most of these kids were brought up to play this way.
This certainly doesn't work for low skills teams as they just end up botching up their passing creating very stupid giveaways and they often just go back to firing on net since it's much easier.
That's probably the case. According to the shot chart pretty much every Russian shot was from long range though, very few right in front of the US goal.
