    Round of 16 matches

    We don't need an "official" for this, do we?
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    Match list will be useful

    29 June 02.00 AEST Brazil v Chile; Belo Horizonte
    29 June 06.00 AEST Colombia v Uruguay*; Rio de Janeiro
    30 June 02.00 AEST Netherlands v Mexico; Fortaleza
    30 June 06.00 AEST Costa Rica v Greece; Recife
    1 July 02.00 AEST France v Nigeria; Brasília
    1 July 06.00 AEST Germany v Algeria; Porto Alegre
    2 July 02.00 AEST Argentina v Switzerland; São Paulo
    2 July 06.00 AEST Belgium v Estados Unidos; Salvador

    One entirely South American quarter. Must be a first, at least with non-UEFA teams.

    Teams playing on the same day play each other.

    Yeah, wanted to wait 'til they were finalised to put up the match list but people were already talking about the R16 matches in threads so, y'know

    Only six UEFA sides left in the last 16, which is the same as last World Cup I think. Five from South America and three from CONCACAF. The latter would be a first I think?

    I fancy Chile and Colombia on Sat.

    USA v Belgium. The USA have half a chance there. Can't wait!

    2nd Round is great, all knockout but still loads of games.

    If Algeria beat Germany it will be the best thing ever.

    Feeling a bit sad about tomorrow though.First day of the tournament without any games on. Loads to look forward to still of course, but I always get a "closer to the end than we are to the beginning" feeling at this point. Always comes around far too quickly for my liking.

    Yeah I know what you mean - time-wise we're only half way through, but we've now had 48 games and there are only 16 to go.

    Hadn't even thought of it like that

    It's bad enough when you get to the 3 round of group games as well - where there's no longer 3 games in a row one after the other and you can watch them all.

    Why does it all have to be over so quickly?

    On paper you'd back each of the group winners to progress but it never happens that way. I'm tipping USA to shock Belgium with a win on pens

    Yeah. Also all three CONCACAF teams that have ever made it to the last 16 are here (Costa Rica already qualified once, but then USA were still **** and Mexico banned).

    Less than half European sides qualified, not exactly a rousing argument for increasing their spots.

    Mexico have lost at this stage five times in a row, looking good for Netherlands

    Will be at least two upsets. Not backing myself to call which ones, though.

    That's as pure a teamwork vs. individual quality match-up as you'll see.

    I feel like Belgium's pattern of a frustrating first hour followed by good late counter-attacking might look a bit better against quality teams. Back four has plenty of mistakes in it though.

    This is dismal. I knew there weren't any matches today but I've still got withdrawals.

    FIFA really missing a trick here by not having 17th-32nd position play-offs to fill in the empty days.

    Alternatively, I suppose I could get a life. Meh.
