Knockout stage

In the knockout stage, if a match is level at the end of 90 minutes of normal playing time, extra time is played (two periods of 15 minutes each), where each team is allowed to make a fourth substitution. If the score is still level after extra time, the winners are determined by a penalty shoot-out.
