NotesEdit

  1. ^ a b c The Norway v Ghana match, originally scheduled on 19 September 2007, 17:00 CST, at Hongkou Football Stadium, Shanghai, was postponed by FIFA on 18 September to the following day and moved to Yellow Dragon Stadium, Hangzhou, due to Typhoon Wipha.[2] On 19 September, FIFA also delayed the Australia v Canada match, originally scheduled on 19 September 2007, 17:00 CST, to the following day to allow for simultaneous kick-off times on the final matchday of the group after it was confirmed that weather conditions would not affect the rescheduling.[3]
