2010 World Cup Knockout Phase Chart for Downloading & Printing

Round of 16 match-ups of note: England vs. Germany; Brazil vs. Chile; Spain vs. Portugal; Argentina vs. Mexico
Two weeks done, two weeks to go. Today sees the start of the Final Knockout Phase of the 2010 World Cup South Africa. This is when things on the football pitch start to get really interesting. Every game becomes a must-win Cup Final affair. The winners go on, ever closer to the ultimate prize in soccer, the losers go home. There are no replays, no 2nd leg matches, no return games, no second chances. Every match must have a winner.
If scores are equal at the end of normal match time, extra time is played. If the scores are still equal after extra time, a penalty shootout takes place. If the scores are still matched after the shootout, sudden-death penalties are taken. It goes on until we get a winner.
I’ll be tracking the Knockout Phase results in this post with my handy little chart, so this post will pop back up to the top of The BlaBla post list fairly regularly over the next two weeks. If you’d prefer to keep track of things yourself, feel free to download a copy of the chart from the links below – I’ll update these downloadable and printable versions as we go through the matches as well.
