1994 FIFA World Cup knockout stage

The 1994 FIFA World Cup knockout stage was the second and final stage of the 1994 FIFA World Cup finals in the United States. The stage began on 2 July 1994 and ended with the final at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on 17 July 1994. The top two teams from each of the six groups, as well as the best four third-placed teams, qualified for the knockout stage. In the round of 16, the four third-placed teams played against four of the group winners, with the remaining two group winners taking on two of the group runners-up; the remaining four runners-up were paired off against each other. The winners of the eight round of 16 matches were then paired together in the quarter-finals, the winners of which played against each other in the semi-finals.

The ties in each round were played over a single match; in the event that scores were level after 90 minutes, the teams would play an additional 30 minutes of extra time, divided into two 15-minute halves, to determine the winner. If the scores remained level after extra time, the teams would contest a penalty shootout.
