There are four groups of 16 teams, A, B, C, and D. Each team was to play the other teams in its pool three times. The top team will automatically proceed to the quarterfinals, under the rules. Conversely, the teams in second and third place will begin playing crossover matches on January 22.

England, who leads the standings with a goal differential of nine, defeated Spain earlier in the match 4-0. Team India had to defeat Wales so that they had a game-high goal differential of eight in order to advance directly to the quarterfinals.
