They were held in 1992.

You asked only for one country so I guess the answer is Japan again. :? :?

To see which team will go first. :? :?

They will go for 15 minutes extra time and if it's still a draw, they'll go for penalty shootouts , which means players of each team will take turn to kick the ball to the opponent's goalie and try to score points. :? :?
