What is the Round of 16? How would Extra Time work?

Sixteen teams (two from each group) advanced from the group stage of the tournament. Now they face single-elimination games at this point and beyond.

According to NBC Los Angeles, if the score ends in a tie after 90 minutes, the game goes into Extra Time -- consisting of two 15-minute sessions with one-minute breaks in between. No matter how many goals are scored (aka the “Golden Goal” rule), the full 30 minutes of extra time are played in its entirety.

If after Extra Time the score remains in a tie, then a best-of-five penalty shootout takes place.
