When will I know if my country has won the World Cup?
The tournament kicks off on Thursday in Brazil and, after two weeks of qualifiers, there is no clear favourite.
Here’s what you need to know ahead of the first round.
What is the World Series?
The World Series is the biggest soccer tournament in the world.
It’s also one of the most unpredictable, and for good reason.
This is a tournament where everyone can go crazy.
With the exception of a group stage, every round is a three-way competition, with the top four teams in each group advancing to the knockout stages.
If a team loses a game to another, they are eliminated.
It can be messy, but if a team wins two of their three matches against each other, they’re guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds.
Who is competing?
The format of the tournament has been determined by the World Rugby Union, which says there will be 32 teams in the tournament.
There will be 16 women’s teams and 14 men’s teams.
The two top seeds will play in the first two-leg knockout stages, while the other two teams will face each other in the group stages.
There are also six qualifiers and four group stages, with one quarter-final round.
Who will be in the quarter-finals?
It’s not the biggest tournament in soccer history.
It is the oldest one, having been played in 1889.
But it’s one of four big tournaments in the sport.
The others are the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the UEFA Europa League.
This will be the fourth time this has happened, with four different teams in a single group stage.
How is the group stage set up?
The groups will consist of four groups of six teams.
Each group will have two groups of four teams each.
The winners of the group will play each other two groups in a playoff format.
The loser of the playoff group will be eliminated.
The winner of the third group will face off against the third-placed team in the fourth group.
Who are the teams in Group C?
They’re the top two seeds from each group, along with the other eight teams from Group A. They’ll play each others second and third-place finishers in a first-leg playoff round.
Who plays in Group D?
It will be a group of four.
The teams from each of the four groups will play one another in a second-leg semi-final.
The victor of the semi-finals will face the runner-up from the second-group.
The group winners will face a runner- up from the first group.
There is no guarantee, however, that the winner will be seeded first in the final.
Who loses in Group A?
If the group winners lose to the runner up in the second group, that will be enough to eliminate the runner and the first-place team.
Who wins in Group B?
The winner will face another runner- and third place finisher in the semi final.
Who defeats in Group H?
If both the runners-up in Group E and the runner in Group F face off in the semifinal, it’s still possible to advance to the next round.
