    Yes, round 1 matches can end in a draw. In round 2 - last 16, quarter finals, semifinals and final, if the match is drawn after 90 minutes, they will play 30 minutes extra time to decide a winner. If there's no winner after extra time, the winner will be chosen by penalty shoot out.

    Yes, in the first round group league stage. Infact the first two matches were draws. From second round, its knockout with drawn matches going for extra-time and if no result even after that then the matches will be decided by tie-breaker and sudden-death!!

    Yes in the group stage of the World Cup matches can end in a draw resulting in teams each earning 1 point.  However, once the group stage is over and it moves into the elimination stage there are no draws.

    If after 90 minutes the score is tied they will have a short break then play two 15 minute overtime periods switching sides after the first 15 and immediately starting the second.  If still tied after that it progresses to penalty kicks.  In penalty kicks 5 shooters from each team proceed to take kicks alternating between the two teams.  If after all 10 shooters are done and it is still tied it will progress into sudden death ending when one team makes a penalty kick and the other misses.

    Yes, they can end in draw and from the second round and 90 mins of full time, they get another 30 mins of play and if no goals, there comes penalty and someone must win.
