This is valid for many sports, but in the context of the FIFA World Cup it makes sense to particularize it to football.
A team, say X, can win or lose. Then we say X won or X lost.
Sometimes it happens that both teams end up even, i.e. in a draw or tie. What is the appropriate way to express that? I always find myself a bit puzzled about this.
Talking about the two teams involved,
- Can we say they got a draw or went into a draw?
- Is it exactly the same for tie?
- Is there a verb version of 'draw' or 'tie'? as in they tied or they drew? I don't know if these exist, but I write them to make my point clear.
