You got a 1-1, so no winner.
Do they just say "y'all can go to the next round" or "Ok, re-match"????

Win: 3 points
Tie: 1 point
Lose: 0 points

Basically you have 3 group matches for each team, then number 1 and 2 in each group gets to the eliminate matches, where a win means the winning team is one match closer the final. A tie after 90 played minutes, gets decided by whats called silver goal or penalty kick if the silver goal does not decide. In silver goal they are playing a 15 minute periode if someone has a lead they win after 15 minutes, if not another 15 minutes is played, if that does not settle it, we have penalties, then you get 5 penalties taken from 11 meter, if another team for example have scored 3 goals in the penalty competition and the other team 0 the 3 goal scoring team wins without all 5 penalties taken as the other team have no chance of getting back up. Mostly 4 or 5 penalties are taken though.

If its still a tie they continue taking penalties until a team miss and the other team scores on the same number of penalties.

Group C is playing its final first matches today right?

Algeria vs Slovenia?

Algeria, whose team experienced that Egyptian fans threw stones after them when that match vs Egypt was deployed, and Slovenia, the tournaments smallest country, thus the perfect underdog to take out the giants.

Alone from that perspective, interesting match.

say, how does this work...should either Algeria or Slovenia win big? Does that in anyway influence England/USA?

Im initially on the small country┬┤s side on this one.

Round 1

Is it just me, or is there a lot of skirmish fighting going on so far...if that word can be used in football-language?

It looks so far as your right.


Pause comments

Seems like both teams have difficulties with the ball it self?

Loads of miss-shoots and the ball has been deployed outside the field numerous times.

Will the team-adaptation to the Jabulani ball, become the determing factor in this match?


***

Round 2

RED CARD!

Slovenia deploys pressure now!

No?, Slovenia decides not to push their pressure???


GOOOAAALL!!

Interesting match, interesting match


****

1 - 0

Congratulations Slovenia!


Group C

Lead nation so far: Slovenia

It is done on a points system. 1 point for a draw, 3 points for a win. When everyone in each group has played each other the team with the most points goes through.

No I think you're absolutely right. It's mainly due to fear I think of losing your opening game, teams just can't take any risks because if they lose then they are all but screwed from the outset and they just can't take that risk even if it means pushing for the win. This means the teams just kind of spar off against one another without really trying to land a killer blow.

We'll see far more open games later in the group stages when nothing but a win will do.
