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. Pulling for the Swedes to win. Plus they are the most attractive team of the field. So that’s another reason.

  2. Has anyone been able to find Netherlands vs China highlight? It's been 12 hours past game time and I still couldn't find it.

  3. I wish just one athlete would stand up and speak the truth about the virus ''hoax'' and warn the public about the vax that is killing and injuring millions of innocent victims around the globe as the paid and controlled msm covers it up… this is genocide folks.. warn your loved ones… PLEASE, before it's too late .. Love each other and don't let them divide us….. pray like never before….

  4. I'm so glad they named a stadium after
    Mr. Miyogi. 👍
    He was my favorite character:
    "What kind of Belt do you have?"
    –"J.C. Penny. $2.99".

  5. Hate to criticize, but after watching NZ in a couple of these matches, I don't understand how even a smaller country cannot find a better keeper. She isn't really trying for the ball, she's looking at players, moving late, more concerned about the contact than making the save.

  6. The Blonde Beauties did it again. 🧇☕️🥛⚽️🇸🇪Those Sweet Swedes. Put them on the cover of the real Sports Illustrated.

  7. I get that they're the colors of the flag, but it looks like Sweden is playing for the Vault-Tec corporation.

  8. NBC Sports is biased because they only upload the USWNT like where's the Netherlands vs China highlight I've been waiting for an hours.

  9. The cuddly dragonfly genomically introduce because shoemaker logistically share a a voracious morocco. spurious, careful cyclone
