NotesEdit

  1. ^ a b The Brazil v Denmark match, originally scheduled on 19 September 2007, 20:00 CST, was postponed by FIFA on 18 September to the following day due to Typhoon Wipha.[2] On 19 September, FIFA also delayed the China PR v New Zealand match, originally scheduled on 19 September 2007, 20:00 CST, 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]
