Someone explain this weird *** game to me
No, really, I have a question on the WC format.
I know that the top two teams from each group advance to the next round after playing the other three teams in their group once. However, I can't find any information on how the tournament is structured after that.
So if US makes it out, who do they play, how many do they play and how is it organized? I know 16 teams move on, so are there now four groups of four, and then the top two teams move on from each group, until there are eight left? What happens after that?
Wikipedia was of no help, any information is appreciated.
