NL has played 7 games thusfar:
Ned 12 – Gbr 9
Ned 12 – Uga 5
Ned 7 – Swe 13
Ned 7 – Ger 10
Ned 13 – Cze 5
Ned 12 – Ind 5
Ned 4 – Can 7
With Canada and Germany atop the poole each with 6 wins and 1 loss and Sweden and Phillipines closely following with 5 wins and 2 losses (in which Phillipines beat Sweden 10-8); the only possibility for the NL to go into quarters would be a tie with phillipines in the poole. Sweden will play Uganda, which they’ll most likely win.
Thus, that leaves the task with beating the phillipines. Which will give both teams a 5-3 record. The rules then clearly state: if A and B are tied and a has beaten B, then A gets the higher place. (Slightly paraphrased)
And if the Dutch win against phillipines both teams end with 5 wins and 3 losses, making the only win that counts the one between the two teams! Go Dutch!
It all comes down to the final game!
P.s. That quarterfinal matchup would be against the USA.
