It goes to Overtime (in other words, they add an extra quarter to the game), which is 5 minutes long. The team who has the highest points after the overtime ends up winning the game. If they are still tied after the overtime, they have another overtime, and they continue having overtime until one team gets a higher score than the other after the overtime.

Depends. If the game is one of the first-round games going for points, then the game can end in a tie. If the game is an elimination game where a loss counts as elimination, a tie is not allowed. Instead, if a tie is present at the end of a 90-minute regulation game, an extra 30 minutes are played. If the tie remains after another 30 minutes, a penalty-kick shootout takes place. The penalty-kick shootout will continue until a winner is declared.
