    That would move them into a tie with the USA for 4th, and only the top 4 teams make it in that pool. What's the next tie-breaking category?

    USA plays Russia, and if they lose, potentially, they don't make the quaterfinals.

    I don't think you have to worry about it.

    Since we tied head to head, it goes to goal differential. Right now the US is up by about 17, so it's not going to be a problem.

    Latvia plays kazakstan, and we play Russia. Are you serious that it's not a worry?

    The tiebreak is goal differential, and right now the US is up 18 on Latvia in that category.

    No goal differential is the first tie breaker.

    The first tie-breaker is the game between USA-Latvia in that case, after that the next tie-breaker would be goal differential. In otherwords, USA is already in unless a complete miracle happens and Latvia scores over 20 goals and lets in 0.

    Unless we lost 10-1, and Latvia won 11-1, we will be in the QFs. Not the way I want to get in, but hey, we're in.

    Latvia would have to win by about 15 or so goals vs Kazakhstan and the US would have to lose for this to happen....

    So don't bank on it.

    How is the goal differential so high?

    Because Latvia got blown out the water when they lost.

    Now it makes sense. It's not what we scored, but what they let in.

    we suck.

    Russia, Slovakia, and Sweden dominated them, while we only lost by a goal to the latter two.

    Simple:

    USA GF:9, GA:8
    Latvia GF:9, GA:26

    When USA have lost, they've lost by few goals only, when Latvia's lost, it's been a blowout.
