We've reached that special and magical time in the life of a young World Cup, where we can now start looking at what each team has to do to get through to the final rounds.
So, without further ado:
Ecuador are top of Group A, with 6 points and a goal difference of +5.
Germany are second, with 6 points and a goal difference of +3.
Poland are third, with 0 points and a goal difference of -3.
Costa Rica are fourth, with 0 points and a goal difference of -5.
Poland and Costa Rica are out of the tournament and nothing can change that. Ecuador and Germany are through to the next round, and the only thing left to decide is which goes through as winner and which goes through as runner-up, which will be decided by their game on June 20th. Poland and Costa Rica play each other for nothing except national pride.
England are in first place, with 6 points and a goal difference of +3.
Sweden are second, with 4 points and a goal difference of +1.
Trinidad & Tobago are third, with 1 point and a goal difference of -2.
Paraguay are fourth with 0 points and a goal difference of -2.
Now, England are through, Paraguay are going home, but nothing else is settled.
Okay, deep breath..
If England win, beating Sweden, and Trinidad & Tobago win, beating Paraguay and the goal difference between the two games is higher than +3 (eg, Sweden and Paraguay both loose by 2 goals), Trinidad & Tobago go through.
If Sweden wins or draws, or if Paraguay wins, or if Trinidad & Tobago wins by a goal difference of +3 goals or less, Sweden goes through.
If Sweden does win, they take the group. Otherwise England takes the group.
And remember, both games are at the same time, so neither knows what the other did.
Good, there may be a test later.
