    World Cup: How do you move on?

    Is it lose and go home from here on out, or do ties still factor in?

    It's elimination games from here on out. If the game is tied at the end of Full Time, there are two 15 minute periods of extra time, followed by penalty kicks. Winner moves on, loser goes home.

    Re: World Cup: How do you move on?

    I'm finding myself wondering why the US has to play a day earlier than England, when the US won the group. Then again, Germany won their group, and they're playing Sunday, so maybe it's just the way the schedule worked out.

    this. related question, how did the US win the group? What tiebreaker did they have over England?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    First tie breaker is Goal Differential, since that was tied for the US and England at +1 it goes to Goals Scored.

    We scored 4 England scored 2.
