Previously, when two teams were drawn in a final match, they were either returned later or the title was divided between them or the tournament went to one of them in the draw. But after the shootout was introduced, that method was relied upon to seal the champion, which seems fairer than previous methods, although it does not necessarily express the best end of the match. It doesn't matter how many penalties each team plays, the two teams will continue to take hits against each other until one fails and the other succeeds and is crowned, or passes for the next role.
