Thank you for the explanation. Football is relatively new to me so I'm still learning the rules, especially those of the World Cup.

No problem

Basically its like any tournament after the group stage. The higher seeds get placed with the lower seeds!

US Plays 2nd place team from this group... (GF - GA)...

Ghana 4 pts (2 -1)
Germany 3 pts (4 - 1)
Serbia 3 pts (1 - 1)
Australia 1 pt (1 - 5)

Ghana plays Germany today
Serbia plays Australia

I would presume Germany & Serbia will be favored which would likely have Germany taking the top seed in Group D with Serbia #2 unless they pump in a lot of goals against the Aussies. Any upsets or ties could throw this scenario into disaray and the Aussies could still advance if they and Ghana win.

The world rankings (I averaged two sources; FIFA May 26th & soccer.net)
7 Germany
13 Serbia
32 Ghana

one list had Australia 20 another had them 43.

Its a tricky one. Whoever wins their group comes up against England, not the USA. My guess is that Germany will go for the win (too risky not to) and get it. I also think that Serbia will beat Australia. So, my prediction will be Germany v England and USA v Serbia.
