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. This was a true pleasure to watch. I wish the US had been kept off the podium entirely, but if they make a statement receiving a bronze I don’t think anyone will care lol.

  2. All of you are a disgrace to the United States of America. Yes, that means you Comment Section Trumptards . As for the lovely ladies of the USWNT, any ONE of them is more accomplished, talented, and courageous than the entire Right Wing Brigade combined .

  3. So, the WOKE US Women's Soccer Team lost? The vast majority of Americans are still patriotic. Why would we root for a team that that hates the country for which they claim to represent?!

  4. Do people realize how many Americans smiled after this "loss" for the USA? Tens of millions. Many of the women's team members are entitled , narcissistic brats, with rappingho being the worst! Congrats Sweden!

  5. Ok but those women are all so beautiful! Thanks 🇸🇪 for reminding us that real women still exist. Real women

  6. Glad for Sweden ….you kneel and embarrass us United States citizens you deserve to lose….bunch of big mouths…who do you think you are ? And btw if you don’t like America ….we’ll then move to another country.

  7. I wonder if Xinnie the Pooh and his honey boy Chong Xina ask her to take a knee when they want to floss her teeth with their micropenises, Burn Loot Murder lives (don't) matter.

  8. Karma how sweet it is!!!🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
    The hotties beat our purple headed dude!!😂🤣😂🤣na na na na yeh yeh yeh goodbye👋🖕
    ❤️🇺🇸

  9. What am embarrassment!!! This USA team is so overrated!! They have no honor in terms of representing USA!! This squad is more concerned about equal pay etc…. Shame on these woman!!! This team is done!!! In my opinion they don’t even deserve to to play for the Bronze!!! Eliminate the entire squad!!!!

  10. Rapinoe’s purple hair didn’t improve her athletic skills? It wasn’t meant to improve her looks, I hope.

  11. Why would Megan Rapinoe be allowed to play for the US National team when she hates America and takes a knee during the National Anthem? Why would the US Soccer federation allow Megan Rapinoe to continue to play for team US when the player hates and despites everything in our country? Why wouldn't that player simply move to another country that has the same views that they believe in and play for that country? Why? Because Megan Rapinoe and the US Soccer federation are total communist and hate America. The only goal the communist has is to destroy America. The US Soccer federation are totally corrupt and hate the United States. Everyone one of them should be arrested for treason. It's too bad that it's not prior to 1940. Because back then all of them would be arrested for treason. Hopefully things will change and all of the communist will be arrested for treason. But this totally corrupt government and media only does want George Soros wants.
