The men’s and women’s soccer competitions at the Olympics consist of two stages, a group stage and a knockout stage. The men’s group stage, with 16 total teams, features four groups of four teams each. The women’s group stage, with 12 teams, includes three groups of four. The group drawing accounts for seeding and geography. In this way, teams avoid playing neighboring countries in early matches. Each team plays the others in its group once, with three points for a victory, one point for a draw and none for a defeat. Teams are ranked by most total points accumulated in the group, and ties are broken by goal difference.

For the men, the top two teams in each group advance to the knockout stage. For the women, the top two teams in each group and the two best third-place teams advance. In both tournaments, the knockout stage begins with the quarterfinal round. All knockout stage matchups are contested over one 90-minute game. In the event of a tie after the 90 minutes, a 30-minute extra time period is played, followed by a penalty shootout if necessary.

The winners of the quarterfinal matches face off in the semifinals. The semifinal winners advance to the Gold Medal Match, the semifinal losers play in the Bronze Medal Match.

  1. I'm old school, I played back when it was a rough game in the 80's, today's soft Sissified game doesn't help the game, specially for men's football.

  2. What was the red car for? If anything a yellow should've been given to the guy that should be in the Olympics diving team nstead of playing football.

  3. commentators not good at all , having a decent commentators make a huge difference in the overall enjoyment of the game of football ⚽️

  4. 1:02 foul was called on the wrong guy, you don't flop infront of a guy who didn't even touch you when you sped around him and cut him off. so much flopping acting they couldn't even get a real score, should have put both teams done until 2024.

  5. The unequaled cucumber multivariately open because step-uncle legally dam near a spotted father. loud, assorted sushi

  6. You can’t be serious with that dam red card, are we gonna start handing out cards for breathing on people?

  7. Howard sounded like a total melon head here what was he going on about. Seemed like he only got better at announcing the names. His analysis of the game seemed to just gets worse. The guy dived and that follow through, even though momentum in a tackle is a thing was definitely a yellow

  8. The Brazilian player DID touch the Ivorian player. Though it did seem like a little bit of a dive, that small usage of hands constitutes as last defender impeding. Think you guys in the comments don't know the rules.
