What I think joachimt has written out there is the scoring mechanism to determine winners - each group will have a winner and a second place, and he lays out how ranks are determined and how ties are broken, and how it's handled in the event the tie can't be broken. Admittedly, it's not super clear from that text that two countries move on, but they do, and that info is around.
