Question: What is the difference between additional time and extra time?

Answer: A football match lasts for 90 minutes – 45 minutes in each half. Extra time, however, is only used at the end of a knock-out match such as a World Cup or FA Cup quarter-final and lasts for two periods of 15 minutes – an extra 30 minutes is used to try and decide the winner.

Is there added time in extra time?

Extra time in soccer is used to determine the winning team of a soccer match if the score is tied at the end of regulation. Extra time consists of two 15 minute halves including additional stoppage time added on to each interval. The team with the most goals at the end of extra time is the winner.
