Each group was a round-robin of six games, where each team played one match against each of the other teams in the same group. Teams were awarded two points for a win, one point for a draw and none for a defeat.
The teams coming first and second in each group qualified for the Round of The four best third-placed teams would also advance to the next stage. Typical of a World Cup staged in Europe, the matches all started at either 5: Hosts Italy won Group A with a percent record.
A second 1—0 victory followed against a United States team already thumped 5—1 by Czechoslovakia. Cameroon defeated reigning champions Argentina.
Despite ending the match with only nine men, the African team held on for a shock 1—0 win, with contrasting fortunes for the brothers Biyik: In their second game the introduction of Roger Milla was the catalyst for a 2—1 win over Romania , Milla scoring twice from the bench making him the oldest goalscorer in the tournament.
With progression assured, Cameroon slumped to a 4—0 defeat in their final group game to the Soviet Union in what would be their last World Cup due to the dissolution of the Soviet Union , who were striving to stay in the tournament on goal difference after successive 2—0 defeats.
In the final match, a 1—1 draw between Romania and Argentina sent both through, equal on points and on goal difference but Romania having the advantage on goals scored: Romania were thus second, Argentina qualified as one of the best third-placed teams.
Costa Rica beat Scotland 1—0 in their first match, lost 1—0 to Brazil in their second, then saw off Sweden 2—1 to claim a place in the second round.
Brazil took maximum points from the group. They began with a 2—1 win over Sweden, then beat both Costa Rica and Scotland 1—0. Group D featured the most goals of all the groups, most due to two large wins of West Germany and defensive inadequacies of a United Arab Emirates team that lost 2—0 to Colombia , 5—1 to West Germany and 4—1 to Yugoslavia.
The West Germans topped the group after a 4—1 opening victory over group runners-up Yugoslavia. The winners of Group E were Spain , for whom Michel hit a hat-trick as they beat South Korea 3—1 in an unbeaten group campaign.
In the six group games, no team managed to score more than once in a match. England beat Egypt 1—0, the only match with a decisive result, and that was enough to win the group.
The group containing England, Ireland and the Netherlands was remarkably similar to the group stage of the European Championship, which had eventually been won by the Netherlands, with England crashing out with three losses to Ireland, the Netherlands and the USSR and Ireland also narrowly failing to progress after losing to the Netherlands and drawing with the USSR.
The results of the group, however, were different: The Netherlands failed to replicate their form of two years earlier, only drawing against Egypt: England then had much the better of their goalless draw with the Netherlands: For the second World Cup in succession, however, England lost their captain Bryan Robson to an injury which put him out of the tournament, just over halfway through their second match.
Ireland and Egypt barely registered a shot on goal between them in the other draw: Both teams qualified but they had to draw lots to place the teams in second and third place.
The Republic of Ireland and the Netherlands finished with identical records. With both teams assured of progressing, they were split by the drawing of lots to determine second and third place.
Ireland won the drawing of lots against the Netherlands for second place in Group F: The knockout stage involved the 16 teams that qualified from the group stage of the tournament.
There were four rounds of matches, with each round eliminating half of the teams entering that round. The successive rounds were: For each game in the knockout stage, any draw at 90 minutes was followed by 30 minutes of extra time ; if scores were still level there would be a penalty shoot-out five penalties each, if neither team already had a decisive advantage, and more if necessary to determine who progressed to the next round.
Scores after extra time are indicated by aet and penalty shoot-outs are indicated by p. Two of the ties — Brazil vs Argentina and Italy vs Uruguay — pitted former champion countries against each other and West Germany met the Netherlands in a rematch of the World Cup Final.
The all-South American game was won for Argentina by a goal from Claudio Caniggia with 10 minutes remaining after a run through the Brazilian defence by Diego Maradona and an outstanding performance from their goalkeeper Sergio Goycochea.
It would later come to light that Branco had been offered water spiked with tranquillisers by Maradona and Ricardo Giusti during half time, to slow him down in the second half.
Initially discredited by the press, Branco would be publicly proven right years later, when Maradona confessed the episode on a TV show in Argentina.
A Ronald Koeman penalty for the Netherlands in the 89th minute narrowed the score to 2—1 but the Germans saw the game out to gain some revenge for their exit to the Dutch in the previous European Championship.
Meanwhile, the heroics of Cameroon and Roger Milla continued in their game with Colombia. Milla was introduced as a second-half substitute with the game goalless, eventually breaking the deadlock midway in extra time.
Though the deficit was soon reduced to 2—1, Cameroon held on to become the first African team ever to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.
Ireland thus became the first team since Sweden in to reach the last eight in a World Cup finals tournament without winning a match outright.
The first game of the last 8 saw Argentina and a Yugoslav side, reduced to 10 men after only half an hour, play out a goalless stalemate. The holders reached the semi-finals after winning the penalty shoot-out 3—2, despite Maradona having his penalty saved.
The quarter-final between England and Cameroon was the only quarter-final to produce more than one goal. At half-time, Milla was brought on.
In the second half, the game was turned on its head during a five-minute stretch: Cameroon came within eight minutes of reaching the semi-finals before they conceded a penalty, which Gary Lineker converted.
Midway through extra time, England were awarded another penalty and Lineker again scored from the spot.
England were through to the semi-finals for the first time since the days of Bobby Moore 24 years prior. The first semi-final featured the host nation, Italy, and the world champions, Argentina in Naples.
There were no more goals in the 90 minutes or in extra time despite Maradona who played for Naples in Serie A at the time showing glimpses of magic, but there was a sending-off: Ricardo Giusti of Argentina was shown the red card in the 13th minute of extra time.
Argentina went through on penalties, winning the shoot-out 4—3 after more heroics from Goycochea. Then, in the 60th minute, a shot from Andreas Brehme was deflected by Paul Parker into his own net.
England equalised with ten minutes left; Gary Lineker was the scorer. The game ended 1—1. Extra time yielded more chances.
Klinsmann was guilty of two glaring misses and both sides struck a post. England had another Platt goal disallowed for offside.
The match went to penalties, and West Germany went on to win the shoot-out 4—3. The game saw three goals in a minute spell.
A header by David Platt levelled the game 10 minutes later but Schillaci was fouled in the penalty area five minutes later, leading to a penalty.
Nicola Berti had a goal ruled out minutes later, but the hosts claimed third place. England had the consolation prize of the Fair Play award, having received no red cards and the lowest average number of yellows per match.
The final between West Germany and Argentina has been cited as the most cynical and lowest-quality of all World Cup Finals. Monzon was the first player ever to be sent off in a World Cup Final.
Argentina, weakened by suspension and injury, offered little attacking threat throughout a contest dominated by the West Germans, who struggled to create many clear goalscoring opportunities.
The 1—0 scoreline provided another first: Argentina were the first team to fail to score in a World Cup Final. With its third title and three second-place finishes West Germany — in its final tournament before national reunification — became the most successful World Cup nation at the time.
This made him the second Italian footballer to have this honour, after Paolo Rossi won the award in After the tournament, FIFA published a ranking of all teams that competed in the World Cup finals based on progress in the competition, overall results and quality of the opposition.
