Why are Portugal in but Albania are out? At least Albania won a game. I assume it's GD, but it's still BS.

they completly nulified Spain's key threats, especially in the 2nd half, then created plenty of their own chances.
----------------

Other than the 2 clangers Ramos and De Gea dropped early in the first half and the goals, Croatia created little. Only remember Perisic's header from a Srna cross. Ramos himself had 2 similar clear headers missed and wasted a penalty. Even if Croatia created more, it was marginal: certainly not enough to say they "outplayed" a Spanish team with more shots and 62% possesion.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
outplayed can mean a different thing that just battering a team.

spain are a better team than croatia, especially without Modric... So to completly nulify them while creating and scoring the goals that win the game, to me at least, is both outplaying and out thinking them
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Out-thought I think is the word that best describes the idea.

Different side of the draw

Albania competing with Northern Ireland or Turkey for 3rd pplace. 2 of the 3 go through. Albania have the worst GD of the three.

Points and goal difference. How else are they supposed to do it?

posted on 22/6/16

Italy 1 0
Belgium 2 0

yea, probably right... Either way... I don't think any club would consider themsleves lucky to play them, right now.

No, Albania are the worst of the 5 3rd places so far. So they are out.

I think it should go points, wins, then GD.

What? No they compete with every single team that finishes third.

Portugal have 0 gd and Albania -2 which is why they're above them in the third place table.

posted on 22/6/16

4 of the 6 Third Placed teams go through.

Albania are 5th of the 5 that have played so far.

Only b/c of all the playing for draws

When has that ever happened in football?

Points, head to head, and, or gd has always been the way. Then goals scored. Wins is way down on the list. Pointless doing it in a three game group stage as well.

If Sweden or Northern Ireland win, Turkey will likely go out.

I think results against the top sides in the group (i.e. 1st and 2nd) should come into it.

Poor Albania

posted on 22/6/16

I think they should change the rules to allow the top 4 in each group to go through
