Group stage tiebreaker rules From the 2014 FIFA World Cup regulations book (section 40, paragraph 5):

The ranking of each team in each group shall be determined as follows:

a) greatest number of points obtained in all group matches;

b) goal difference in all group matches;

c) greatest 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 shall be determined as follows:

d) greatest number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;

e) goal difference resulting from the group matches between the teams concerned;

f) greater number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned;

g) drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee.

what is graphics failed to highlight is how the qualification process discriminates the CONCACAF region. whereas UEFA get 13 slots out of 53 teams (24%), CONCACAF gets 4 spots out of 35 teams (11%). however, as of today, we will have at best 4 UEFA teams go into "sweet 16" (about 30% of 13 teams). compared to CONCACAF, we have at least 2 teams out of 4 from the CONCACAF region. 50%. if US beat or tie with Germany, CONCACAF success ratio will be improved to 75%. clearly, FIFA should consider cutting back on UEFA and increase the number of teams in CONCACAF.

In other words, you wanna see teams like Jamaica and Guatemala at the World Cup, in place of European teams. Ha! 4 Concacaf teams is more than enough.
