Squads[edit]

Each team must name a squad of 21 players (three of whom must be goalkeepers) by the FIFA deadline.[9]

Group stage[edit]

The winners and runners-up of each group and the best four third-placed teams advance to the round of 16.[9] The rankings of teams in each group are determined as follows:

  1. points obtained in all group matches;
  2. goal difference in all group matches;
  3. number of goals scored in all group matches;

If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, their rankings are determined as follows:

  1. points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  2. goal difference in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  3. number of goals scored in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  4. fair play points (first yellow card: minus 1 point; second yellow/indirect red card: minus 3 points; direct red card: minus 3 points; yellow card & direct red card: minus 4 points);
  5. drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee.

All times are local, Chile Standard Time (UTC−3).
