Events of Note[edit]

England and Ireland tied for second place (and advancement to the semifinals) on points, goal differential, goals scored, and in the match between the teams in Round IV, Group 2. The tie was broken in England's favor, prompting a storm of protests from Ireland users over the lack of transparency in the tiebreaking rules. The following season saw an addition to the NT Rules from the HTs which explained that the group ranking would be determined by points, goal difference, goals scored, and then "Rank in last WC (for qualification) / Rank before final group game (round II, III and IV)". This is why England progressed at the expense of Ireland as they had a higher rank going into the match.
