It will be France’s attack versus Uruguay’s defense! Uruguay has just conceded 1 goal for the tournament so far. On the other hand, France’s forward, Kylian Mbappe is like the Usain Bolt of football.

Handicaps:

Integral central midfielder for France, Blaise Matuidi got his 2nd yellow in the Round of 16 match versus Argentina. So he will be on the bench today.

It is unlikely that striker, Edinson Cavani will play for Uruguay. He pulled up with a hamstring injury versus Portugal in the round of 16. His teammate, Adil Rami says that Cavani will have to ‘destroy science to face France’. That is likely to be true since hamstring injuries can be a showstopper. They have to get weeks, possibly months of rest, depending on the severity of the injury.

Uruguay’s other popular striker, Luis Suarez isn’t worried though. He says that Uruguay can cope without injured Cavani. We shall see!

Brazil vs. Belgium

Brazil have Neymar, but have been defending more than attacking, just conceding 1 goal so far. Brazil are tournament favourites, but Belgium is being described as one of the most exciting teams, nicknamed Red Devils. This is especially after Belgium’s epic comeback versus Japan in the last round of 16.

What a weekend! Check out how the World Cup is going here!

What an action packed weekend with football!

The Maracana dream was kept alive for Brazil, Netherlands and Costa Rica who had close encounters with their opponents with even 2 of the matches consisting of Penalty shoot outs. Painful losses for Chile, Mexico and Greece, as their World Cup is now over.

The dream was also kept alive for Columbia that cruised to victory sending Uruguay home with 2 goals by James Rodriguez, of which the first is arguably the best goal in the World Cup so far. He was even trending on Google Circles and is certainly one to watch.

The excitement continues today with France vs Nigeria and Germany vs Algeria.

 

Updated Scores for World Cup 2014!

What a day!

Columbia has advanced to the knockout stage with their victory over the Ivory Coast and the Japan vs. Greece draw in Group C. The World Cup futures of Japan and Greece depend on their must win final match to have a chance of surpassing Ivory Coast into second place. Both teams only have one point after a scoreless draw today.

Wayne Rooney ties for 4th in England goal standings after he scored his first goal in the World Cup finals against Uruguay. He has tied with Michael Owen on 40 goals. But it was not enough. Luis Suarez played one of his best games ever and scored 2 goals for Uruguay, still giving them a glimmer of hope. Group D is one to watch to see how this all plays out.
