brazil eliminated in group stage of womens world cup after a three way draw with italy and australia

Posted Over 1 Year ago by Weid woman

Much like it is unfair with the nfl with their divisions on who makes it to the playoffs right jet presto? This wasn’t any sort of draw it was s draw with THREE fucking teams who took the lead, not two. So shouldn’t all three make it to the sweet 16?

I'm pretty sure Brazil didn't get knocked out, actually. I'm pretty sure they're going to get one of the third place spots in the bracket and will get in that way.

But I mean, that's how it works. You play three games. You gotta score goals and win matches to advance. If you have the same record as someone else in the group but scored fewer goals or seceded more goals, you weren't the better team. You play the same teams.

So with the women's World Cup, it's not quite big enough so that it's just winners of the group and the runner's up that advance. Four teams from any group nab what are essentially "wild card" spots. That rounds out the Round of 16 (since there are only six groups, which would put 12 teams in). Those four spots are determined by points and tie-breakers, too.

So I don't think they know where exactly Brazil will go and who they will play, but I'm pretty sure they are mathematically in.

Well, NOW they've been eliminated. They maybe played their best game against France, really, but came up short. Sad to see Marta go out this way.
