Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Colombia advanced by drawing.
  2. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k The FIFA gives no reference as to which stadiums were used for the games all along the competition, except for the match Brazil v Nigeria, played in Kirov Stadium, Leningrad. The information has been retrieved from other sources.
  3. ^ a b The FIFA states "Russia" here, which is an anachronism.
  4. ^ a b c d Due to the FIFA not informing on the Stadiums of the competition, there's an inconsistency with the hour of these matches. Whether they were played at different venues, or at different hours in the same venues, is uncertain.
  5. ^ a b FIFA acknowledges him first from Scotland and then from England.
