So after goal differential, head to head goals, total goals scored, they go to drawing lots (or a coin flip). At least in the NFL there are many more tiebreakers before it gets down to that coin flip that URI references, and it's never happened. Nor has it in the World Cup, but it seems much more likely.
I'm surprised that, since the Cup goes back quite some time, they didn't set up other tiebreakers. Maybe they don't make a ton of sense, but better than a coin flip or drawing lots. Fewest Red Cards. Fewest Yellow Cards. Fewest Fouls. Most shots. Most Corners.
I thought maybe a sudden death match between tied teams would work, but since the 4 teams involved are playing at separate locations, that would be hard to arrange.
What would folks who know alot more about the game than I do think would work best in case the tiebreakers don't break the tie?
1. Total number of points
2. Goal difference in all group matches
3. Goals scored in all group matches
4. Head-to-head results of tied teams
5. Goals scored in matches between tied teams
6. Drawing of lots
