As you know..1st round in any griup will have 28 matches.Total no.of point = 28*2=56.For a team to score min and qualify we need to maximize the point for the players above him.So we will max' the points of the top 3 players.The top 3 players can score 7*2 = 14 and 6*2=12 and 5*2=10. Total 36 points.Now 56-26 = 20 Devide ths equally among the rest of the players..each player will get 4 points..and thats your ans.Because even if the poibts are same one can score more goals to qualify.And why the top the players had such deacreasing score?think yourself to understand the concept for better.Good luck
