Football Logic Puzzle! Ha!

:thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:

You could probably google up a calculator for this, so I want a full logical explanation, not just a yes or no answer, or link. :taunt:

In the group stage of the World Cup tournament a team loses two matches.

Give a full logical explanation of why it can or cannot still qualify for the knockout stage.

(4 teams in each group).
There'll be time enough for counting, when the dealing's done..

If team A wins all 3 matches it ends up with 9 points and teams B, C & D will all have lost one game and two matches to play. If each team wins one game and loses one game, they will be tied on 3 points with one of them advancing to next round
