FIFA World Cup 2014 Tie Breaker Rules: “Between the teams concerned”?

1

This rule concerns how the teams are ranked after the Group Stage (Round of 32) is done, determining which teams move on to the Round of 16.

In each group, there are four teams. During the Group Stage, each team plays the other three teams in their group. For these three matches, each team is awarded 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. After the Group Stage is over, the four teams in each group are ranked according to how many points they accumulated over the three matches. (This is criteria A in the rule you cited.)

If there is a tie after this ranking, criteria B and C are used, using the statistics from ALL three group matches that each team played in determining the rank order.

If there is still a tie after criteria C is applied, criteria D, E, and F are used. The difference between these three criteria and criteria A, B, and C is that with D, E, and F, the only match(es) you look at is the match between the teams that are still...

Here is the rule for the ranking of the teams in the Group Stage of the World Cup, from Article 41 of the Regulations, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

COMPETITION

Considering how many draws we've seen in the World Cup group stage so far, I am probably not the only one who has wondered, exactly what rules do they apply for the placement of the group members if they end up having the same amount of points at the end of the group stage?

Luckily, the official 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa regulations come to the rescue. Article 39, no. 5, reads:

The ranking of each team in each group will be determined as follows: a) greatest number of points obtained in all group matches; b) goal difference in all group matches; c) greatest number of goals scored in all group matches. If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, their rankings will be determined as follows: d) greatest number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned; e) goal difference resulting from the group matches between the teams concerned; f) greater number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams...

At first glance for a casual fan, the World Cup tiebreakers for the group stages seem daunting, but the system is no more complicated than the ones used in the NHL, NFL, and other places.

When you wrap your head around it, the system isn’t too difficult to figure out. The hard part comes in figuring out all the scenarios that could occur that could send your team through, or home. For that, you’d need an abacus.

Here’s a brief explainer on FIFA’s tiebreaking system at the 2014 World Cup, to help educate, inform, and hopefully (not likely) entertain.

Tiebreaker 1

Goal difference in the group matches

This is a simple equation, subtracting goals for from goals against overall. Every World Cup table on the internet does this for you already (including ours!), in the “GD” column.

Tiebreaker 2

Greatest number of goals scored in the group matches

If teams are tied on goal difference, then straight up goals scored are used as the second...

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is almost upon us as domestic football takes a backseat over the summer, handing the stage to the world's greatest footballing nations.

The tournament will begin on June 12 with eight groups consisting of four teams. The winners and runners-up in each group will then proceed to a knockout phase to determine who will be the eventual winners of the historic trophy.

However, things are rarely that straight-forward. There are scenarios in which complications could occur, not least if multiple teams share the same points totals at the end of the group stages.

Here, we take a look at the rules of the competition and give you the facts you need to understand in how the group stage of the tournament works:

With the start of Match Day 3 of the Group Stage of the World Cup, some teams may need a tiebreaker.

FIFA has already set the rules before the start of the World Cup. Here is how teams will be separated in case they end up with equal points after each team plays 3 matches (I was also confused, for some reason, but I will try to re-write them with some explanations):

The ranking of each team in each group shall be determined as follows:

a) greatest number of points obtained in all the group matches;
b) goal difference in the group matches;
c) greatest number of goals scored in the group matches.

If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, their ranking will be determined as follows:

d) greatest number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;
e) goal difference resulting from the group matches between the teams concerned;
f) greater number of goals scored in all group...

The away goals rule is a method of breaking ties in association football and other sports when teams play each other twice, once at each team's home ground. By the away goals rule, the team that has scored more goals "away from home" will win if scores are otherwise equal.[1]

The away goals rule is most often invoked in two-leg fixtures, where the initial result is determined by the aggregate score — i.e. the scores of both games are added together. In many competitions, the away goals rule is the first tie-breaker in such cases, with a penalty shootout as the second tie-breaker if each team has scored the same number of away goals. Rules vary as to whether the away goals rule applies only to the end of normal time of the second leg, or applies in extra time as well. It was first introduced by UEFA in 1965.

Rationale[edit]

Originally, the away goal rule was introduced in football as an expedited way of doing away with playoffs or tie breakers on neutral...
