Tie-breakers for Russia 2017 groups
Two rounds of group-stage matches have been completed at the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017, and with just one to go, no team has yet secured a berth in the last four. The semi-finalists will be determined over the weekend, with seven of the eight teams still in the reckoning.
