Points, results and deciders

Each team plays all other teams in their group and is awarded four points for a win, two for a draw and one for a loss. Number of points, goal difference and then goals scored determine placings within the group.

If the sides are level at the end of normal time in a knock-out phase game (play-off, quarter-final, semi-final and final) then the game goes to extra time of five minutes each way followed by a penalty shoot-out of five attempts per team and then a sudden death shoot-out if still level.

There is no exception to these rules unless due to injury.
