Qualification Scenarios

I wasn't completely clear in an earlier post and may have presented some misinformation. Here are the qualification rules as outline by Article 19 of the Regulations handbook.

Ranking criteria is as follows:
1. Number of Points
2. Head-to-Head
3. Goal Differential between the teams concerned
4. Goals Scored between the teams concerned
5. Total Goal Differential
6. Total Goals Scored
7. Penalty Kicks (if the two teams are on the field of play)
8. Fair Play (-1 for each Yellow Card, -3 for Red Card, -3 for two Yellow Cards followed by an ejection, -4 for a Yellow Card followed by a direct Red Card)
9. Drawing of Lots
