Man of the match

New for 2010 is the Budweiser Man of the Match award. Fans vote for the top player for each match in the World Cup tournament.

Group Stage

The first round was also called the Group stage. There were 32 teams in the first round of the World Cup. The teams were divided into eight groups with four teams in each group. The groups were named Group A through Group H.

Each team in a group played all the other teams in their group one time. That means there were six games in each group and 48 games in the first round. The top two teams from each group in this round advanced (were allowed to play) in the next round, named the Round of 16.

The FIFA uses the following method to rank teams in the first round.

  1. The highest number of points in the group matches.
  2. The goal difference in the group matches.
    • The goal difference is found by subtracting the number of goals against (GA) from the number of goals for (GF).
  3. The highest number of goals scored in the group matches.
  4. The highest number of points in the matches between the tied teams.
  5. The goal difference in the matches between the tied teams.
  6. The highest number of goals scored in matches between the tied teams.
  7. By the drawing of lots (a random selection) by the FIFA Organizing Committee.

Knockout stage

The games starting with the second round are known as the knockout stage. These games can not end in a draw (tie). If a match (game) is tied at the end of 90 minutes (the regular game time limit), extra periods are added to the game. Two periods, each 15 minutes long, will be played. If the score is still tied after the two extra periods, the game will be decided by a penalty kick shootout.
