The tiebreaker factor to go to the round of 16

If two teams are tied on points, the tiebreaker is drawn in the first instance by goal difference: the subtraction between the goals scored and those received.

Whoever has the best number in that section among the tied teams is in the best position.

Thus, the wins by Spain, England and France are very beneficial if they need a tiebreaker (and very disadvantageous for Costa Rica, Iran and Australia for that very reason).

If the remote scenario of a tie in goal difference occurs, the next criterion to define the position is the highest number of goals scored in the group stage matches, according to FIFA.

This is how the positions go in the group stage
