First round

Like the previous two years, sixteen nations played in four groups of four. However this year the format was modified so that the top three teams from each group would advance to a group of six, carrying forward the results against the teams who advanced with them. The nations from the first and fourth pools were grouped together, likewise the second and third pools. The fourth placed teams were put in a group together to contest relegation.
