Eight teams enter and four teams advance. Only two spots open today as both Brazil and Portugal already have their place in the Round of 16.
South Korea vs. Portugal, 9 a.m. on Fox and Telemundo
Portugal has already advanced with six points and is not playing their best squad but Christiano Ronaldo is out there looking for a goal since this is probably his last World Cup. Right?
South Korea only has one point and their manager is not on the bench after receiving a red card after the last game. The Koreans need to beat Portugal and Uruguay to beat Ghana to stand a chance.
Portugal claimed an early lead in the fifth minute. Not sure if Ronaldo will take credit later.
South Korea equalizes!
South Korea takes the lead and Uruguay wins 2-0 but fails to advance. Another round of drama. Goals, teams fighting to score, and others barely holding on.

Ghana vs. Uruguay, 9 a.m. on FS1 and Universo
Ghana sits in second place with three points and could still advance with a loss but a draw would increase their chance and of course, a win ensures a Round of 16 spot.
Uruguay has a single point and needs a win and a result in the other game to help them out a bit. This could be one of those groups where differential and fair play points are discussed by the announcers.
Ghana doesn’t score on a penalty and Uruguay turns around and scores. Deja Vu?

Cameroon vs. Brazil, 1 p.m. on Fox and Telemundo
Brazil is in with six points and Cameroon has one point. Brazil may not be as flashy as their history but they put up two solid wins 2-0 and 1-0 while Cameroon lost to the Swiss and drew 3-3 with Serbia.
Serbia vs. Switzerland, 1 p.m. on FS1 and Universo
Switzerland has three and Serbia a single point. The Swiss are probably through with a draw but Serbia is no pushover. Switzerland has played two 1-0 games, a win and a loss so their games tend to be tight and low scoring but this is the World Cup. IT could go crazy. Serbia lost 2-0 to Brazil and had a 3-3 draw with Cameroon.
