FIFA original text

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:

    f) greatest number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned concerned

    e) goal difference resulting from the group matches between the teams

    f) greatest number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned

    g) drawing of lots by the FIFA Organizing Committee

    The teams finishing first and second in each group will qualify for the Round of 16.

 

Edited

The two teams from each group with the highest rankings will be selected for the round of sixteen with the ranking within each group set according to the following criteria in descending order of importance:

a) sum of points earned with points for each game assigned as win=2, draw=1, and lose=0

b) goal difference computed as the sum of goals scored minus the sum of goals allowed

c) the number of goals scored

    In case of a tie the above three criteria will be applied to the head to head matches among the tied teams. If ties remain unresolved, lots will be drawn by the FIFA Organizing Committee.
