How is equal points decided in World Cup?

4. Head-to-head record –

If teams have an identical group record for points, goal difference and goals scored, we move on to head-to-head to separate them. If two teams are identical This is simple, as you look at the result of that one group game. Did one of two teams win that match? If so, they will be ranked highest.

  • If it was a draw, we move directly on to point 5 to split them.
  • If three teams are identical This is more complicated, as you can’t just use individual results because there’s three matches to take into account.
  • Effectively, you create a mini-league of just the three games involving the three nations.

This mini league is ranked by: 4a) Points 4b) Goal difference 4c) Goals scored If only two teams are still level at the end of this stage, direct head-to-head is not applied and these two teams alone move to point 5. The third team is now locked in position.

  • If all three teams are still level, the order is decided by point 5.
  • If all four teams are identical
  • It won’t be possible to separate them on head to head and the group would be decided on point 5.

Why Brazil will win the World Cup?

Why Brazil Are Favourites to Win the World Cup When you think of Brazil’s attack, you naturally think of Neymar. The way he glides and slides with the ball as he ghosts past defenders is hard to ignore. With his explosive movement and sharp changes of direction, Neymar has amassed 75 goals in 121 appearances for Brazil and is three behind Pelé (77 goals) for the all-time record.

  1. Neymar, just like Pelé, is vying for a World Cup title, but success on the international stage has been harder to come by.
  2. At the time of this World Cup, Neymar will be nearly the same age as Pelé was when he retired from international football, trophy cabinet resplendent with three World Cup victories.

Neymar still awaits his first. Now, more than ever, he and Brazil will be looking to make a mark. With Neymar in the form of his life in the French capital –– scoring 15 goals in 20 games and setting up another 11 –– it isn’t far-fetched to suggest he is the reason that Brazil are favourites for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

But while he is Brazil, Brazil isn’t just him. One could argue that Brazil are favourites simply because of the talent they have on board. In fact, they are stacked in every position. With two of the best goalkeepers in the world in Ederson and Alisson, Brazil are able to initiate and control games with possession.

They have the experienced defensive midfielders in Casemiro and Fabinho to disrupt the opponent and win the ball back, and their pick of the pack when it comes to attacking talent available up front. But their favourites tag isn’t just because they have Neymar or the best world-beating talent right now.

Instead, it is because Brazil, for the first time in a while, are more than the sum of their parts. What of Brazil’s main competitors in Qatar? The next logical team to consider would be France, a team brimming with talent but who do have the capacity to fall flat on their faces or crash and burn. Argentina look strong, too.

The winners of last year’s Copa América –– who bested Brazil themselves to get there –– Argentina entered the tournament on a 36-game unbeaten run and with the devotion to deliver one last emotional hurrah for their capital Lionel Messi, but fell to one of the biggest shocks in World Cup history in their first game, losing to Saudi Arabia.

  • England? They have a young, talented squad who started brightly against Iran, but whose style of play often sees them struggle against superior opponents.
  • Germany? It has been a long time since they intimidated anyone.
  • Spain go for the throat under Luis Enrique, playing out from the back and pressing teams high up the pitch.

To lose against Spain is a death by a thousand passes, but similar to the Germans, they lack a consistent threatening goalscorer.

Messi v Ronaldo – Following the last match played, Leo Messi has now played 1,040 games at professional level. In those games, the Argentine has scored 819 goals. In addition, he has provided a total of 344 assists, In other words: 1,163 goals have come directly from his boots.

As for Cristiano Ronaldo, his statistics are even better from an absolute point of view. He has scored 851 goals in 1,180 matches, making him the all-time top scorer. A stratospheric achievement, although it cannot be ruled out that Messi, now 35, could take it away from him, In the assists statistics he is worse off, with 200 assists, which is why the Portuguese’s absolute contribution is lower: he has generated 1,051 goals.

Looking at the averages, Leo Messi’s stands at 0.79 goals and 0.33 assists. Cristiano Ronaldo’s is 0.72 and 0.17, respectively. And that’s including his penalty goals. World Cup Points Table 2022

Do goals matter in World Cup?

Will goal difference or head-to-head be used to separate teams on the same amount of points? – Given there are only three games for each team in the group stage, there is a great likelihood that some of the teams in more than one of the groups will finish on equal points.

In Russia four years ago, there were three groups where that was the case while two groups had the same issue in Brazil in 2014. In the first instance, teams who have the same amount of points after the three matches will be separated, firstly, by goal difference. The team with the greater goal difference will finish above the teamer with the lesser goal difference.

Nice and easy. If the goal difference is the same for both teams, goals scored is the deciding factor. The team that has scored more goals in the three games will finish higher than the team who has scored fewer. Again, nice and easy.

What happens if 2 teams have same points in World Cup?

How do World Cup tiebreakers work? – Obviously, groups are determined by total points. Teams get three for a win, one for a draw, and none for a loss. That’s all very normal. It’s once we get into the tiebreakers that things get more murky. FIFA’s order of operations when teams end up with the same point total is as follows: Goal difference: Subtract a team’s goals conceded in the group from their goals scored, and you have their goal difference.

  • The higher, the better.
  • Goals scored: This is the most simple tiebreaker: if the teams have the same point total and goal difference, the team that scored more goals finishes higher.
  • Head-to-head results,
  • If the teams can’t be broken up on goal totals, FIFA zooms in on the game they played against each other.

If that ended in a draw, we move down this list, but if one team beat the other, the winner has the edge. That said, in the event of three teams ending up level on points, goal difference, and goals scored, this tiebreaker will likely be decisive. It is possible for a group to finish with all four teams on four points, but in that scenario this tiebreaker is pretty clearly not going to determine anything.

Head-to-head goal difference: You know the score by now. If the results between the tied teams don’t separate them, we move on to goal difference. With teams only playing one another once in the group stage, this tiebreaker can only be useful in the event of a three-way tie. Head-to-head goals scored: Again, a repeat of an earlier tiebreaker, scaled down to just the meetings between the teams that need to be separated.

As with the last tiebreaker, there’s no way this one comes up if we have a two-team tie. Fair play points: This is where the tiebreaking process starts to get strange. FIFA wanted to incentivize sportsmanship and clean play, and as such has been assigning a point total based on how many bookings a team collects in the group stage.

Yellow card: -1 points Red card via two yellow cards: -3 points Straight red card: -4 points Yellow card and straight red card: -5 points

A player can only be responsible for one of these four scores, so for example, the player receiving two yellow cards isn’t assessed a minus-one for both cards on top of the minus-three for being sent off. There is no way to get a positive point total in FIFA’s system.

The team whose fair play score is closest to zero will advance if this tiebreaker comes into use, which is a very rare situation. Drawing of lots: If the teams can’t be separated by any of the above, a member FIFA’s organizing committee with no connections to the tied teams will literally pull a name out of the pot, and that team will go through.

Per a report from 2018, FIFA’s procedure involves placing each team’s name into a separate ball (). The organizing committee member will pick a ball out of the pot, and the team in that ball will advance. It’s cruel, but the World Cup doesn’t come with time to insert a one-game playoff between the group stage and the round of 16.

What happens if 2 teams have same points?

2. Goals scored – If countries win an equal number of points and have the same goal difference, the team that has scored the most goals comes out on top. This has eliminated sides from the World Cup on four occasions, Most notably, Italy went on to win the trophy in 1982 after edging out Cameroon by virtue of the fact they had netted one goal more than the Africans.

What happens if England beat Senegal?

England will be hoping to finally end more than half a century of World Cup heartache by bringing home football’s most sought-after trophy from Qatar. But the Three Lions face a tough route to the final at the Lusail Stadium in Doha in December. Gareth Southgate’s side have already taken their first step on the road to international football’s biggest game, having won Group B to land a place in the round of 16. World Cup Points Table 2022 Image: Depending on the way results fall, tricky ties against the likes of France, Portugal and Brazil potentially await England, if they can beat Senegal Round of 16 One thing we do know for sure is England’s round of 16 opponents. As winners of Group B, England now face the runners-up of Group A, Senegal, at the Al Bayt stadium at 7pm this Sunday. World Cup Points Table 2022 Image: England face Senegal in the World Cup round of 16 after the Three Lions won Group B and Senegal finished runners-up in Group A Senegal will, however, be without star forward Sadio Mane, while Gueye is suspended due to picking up two yellow cards in the Group Stages.

Bayern Munich and ex-Liverpool star Mane was ruled out of the World Cup earlier this month after undergoing surgery on a knee injury. Quarter-finals If England beat Senegal they will go into the quarter-finals in what will be game 59 of the tournament. Just like the round of 16, the game will be played at the Al Bayt stadium, at 7pm on Saturday 10 December.

This is where it gets a bit trickier in terms of predictions, but England’s most likely opponents at this stage will be France. Les Bleus look set to top Group D after winning both their opening games ahead of their final group game against Tunisia on Wednesday. World Cup Points Table 2022 Image: Kylian Mbappe celebrates scoring France’s second goal against Denmark Poland currently top the group with four points, with Argentina in second on goal difference ahead of Saudi Arabia – who beat the South American side in their opening match.

Argentina face Poland in their final game and although La Albiceleste will be the favourites, they are in for a difficult match. And even a draw might not be enough for Argentina if either Mexico or Saudi Arabia claim victory in their last game. More from the World Cup: England fans jubilant rather than jeering Who is predicted to win the World Cup? Welsh singing, passion and pride continues despite loss While Argentina will be France’s toughest opponents if they finish second in the group, Didier Deschamps’s side will be favourites to win and clinch a quarter-final tie against England.

A game between England and France will be the first World Cup match between the two sides in 40 years. The last game, at the 1982 World Cup, ended 3-1 to England. Before that was England’s 2-0 victory in 1966 on the road to the Three Lions’ only World Cup win.

  • Semi-finals Again, another tricky prediction given much is still in the balance in the group stages, and England will have to beat one of the tournament’s favourites to get to this stage.
  • One thing is for certain, if England can make it to the semi-final, they will return to the Al Bayt stadium for a third time for game 62, which will be played at 7pm on Wednesday 14 December.

At the moment, England’s likely semi-final opponents will be Portugal. World Cup Points Table 2022 Image: England could face Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal side in the semi-final Against the odds, Morocco looks likely to clinch the top spot in Group F. They sit second behind Croatia on goal difference with bottom side Canada left to play. Croatia faces a stuttering Belgium side, with the winner of that game clinching the other spot.

Presuming it is Morocco, they face a potential clash with Germany in the round of 16, who, while currently bottom of Group E, face a final group game against Costa Rica needing a win and for in-form Spain to beat Japan. Despite Germany’s less-than-impressive start to the tournament, Hansi Flick’s side will be favourites to overcome Morocco.

Meanwhile, Portugal look set to storm Group H and set up a round of 16 tie with the runner-up of Group G – which looks likely to be Switzerland. Presuming Portugal wins that quarter-final tie, they could set up a semi-final against England. Such a tie would be a chance for redemption for England, who suffered two dramatic penalty shoot-out defeats to Portugal in the 2000s.

  1. The Three Lions were beaten 6-5 on penalties in the Euro 2004 quarter-finals after a 2-2 draw.
  2. Portugal then dumped England out of the World Cup at the same stage in 2006, winning 3-1 on penalties after a tense 0-0 draw.
  3. Final There’s a long route to the final, with plenty of twists and turns still to come.

But if England can overcome Senegal, France and Portugal, they could face tournament favourites Brazil in the final at the Lusail Stadium in Doha. The game is set to take place on Sunday 18 December at 3pm. While it is by no means certain that they will face the five-time World Cup winners in the final, Tite’s side looks like strong favourites to be in the mix. World Cup Points Table 2022 Image: England could face tournament favourites Brazil in the final of this year’s World Cup At is it currently stands, Brazil will likely face Ghana in the round of 16, followed by a strong Spain side in the quarter-finals. The semi-finals are, again, a bit trickier to predict, but the Netherlands look the most likely to be there with them, but only if they can beat their likely opponents of USA and Denmark in the round of 16 and quarter-finals.

Should Brazil’s impressive firepower, with an attacking line-up containing the likes of Neymar, Vinicius, Raphinha and Richarlison, see them through, a potential final clash with England awaits. England fans will no doubt remember the heartbreak of the 2002 quarter-final defeat in Japan. The Three Lions took an early lead through Michael Owen but were pegged back through Rivaldo, before Ronaldinho scored a spectacular long-range free-kick to beat David Seaman and dump England out.

That match was one which saw two golden generations go head-to-head. And while Brazil will be favourites with their squad of superstars, England’s emerging talents will no doubt be hopeful of pulling off an upset should they face the South American side in the semi-final.
