    Caturday:
    France v. Argentina
    Uruguay v. Portugal
    Bunday:
    Spaiñ v. Russia
    Croatia v. Denmark
    Monday:
    Brazil v. Mexico
    Belgium v. Japan
    Tuesday:
    Sweden v. Switzerland
    Colombia v. England

    I underlined those who are certain/very probably going to win.
    For Colombia it depends on whether Rodríguez and Falcao are up to it, and Brazil and Argentina need to up their game once and for all.
    Good luck against the Swedes, you're gonna need it. :)
    It was awful. Japan have actually shown they can play good football, they really should've gone for an equaliser which I think they'd've gotten.

    Please stop posting these kind of things, or the slaughterbots will find me. I still haven't taken delivery of that anti-thermal imaging material we're discussing in the OT.

    On the other hand it's a bit poetic that the yellow card which decided their fates was from the Senegalese elbow on Japan

    France has a legitimately good team and Argentina hasn't shown an ability to perform well against legitimately good teams.

    Well, that's why I didn't underline ‘Argentina’ but you and Ozbenno are endangering my life. Which is a good excuse for going off to play videogames.

    I'm tempting fate here, I know.

    I think England should be able to beat Colombia, but I've been supporting England long enough to know that there is no limit to their ability to disappoint.
