Beside using it to see World Cup 2022 fixtures, you can use it to track progress of your favorite team during this tournament. There are score fields where you can type actual score results and let the excel formulas calculated group standings and place qualified teams in knock out bracket. The formulas for group standings are based on tie-breaker regulation released by FIFA for this World Cup. There are 8 tie-breaker points 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:
4. points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;
5. goal difference in the group matches between the teams concerned;
6. number of goals scored in the group matches between the teams concerned;
7. fair play points (accumulative points from yellow and red cards)
8. drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee.
Excel formulas will rank teams based on regulation 1-6 after you typing scores in particular score boxes. Tie-breaker regulation no 7 requires you to input fair play points in Fair Play Points table in Custom Language worksheet if particular teams are still in tie after running through regulation no 6. If they are still tied, you just need to switch those teams inside group standing table directly.
You can continue to type scores in Knock Out rounds. There are Full Time boxes (Normal Time + Extra Time) and Penalty Kick boxes. Penalty Kick boxes will be revealed if particular matches are tied after Full Time period is completed.
There are conditional formatting formulas that will show group color as well as flag for particular team that advance to the next knock out rounds automatically. You might experience slow process on using the spreadsheet with automatic flag functions. Time delay should vary on different laptop and processor. You can switch to the spreadsheet without that automatic flag functions if you can’t tolerate the delay.
