Each four-team Group in the World Cup will play a round robin tournament in the Group Stage. For each win in that tournament, a team is assigned three points with one point awarded for a draw and zero points given for a loss. At the end of the tournament if two teams have the same number of points, then tie-breakers are used to determine the team's rankings. We've provided a space for you to tally each team's points as the Group Stage progresses.
