Most Dramatic Moments From The Group Stage

South Korea shocked the football world by defeating Germany 2-0 at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this week, but Son Heung-min, South Korea's star forward, insisted on Friday he and the rest of the team won't stay content. Their most impressive result came against Argentina, as they crushed their main rivals for top spot.

Federation Internationale de Football Association fined Mexico for homophobic chants by their fans, Denmark were fined for a sexist banner, and some women at the tournament have been targeted by discriminatory behaviour.

Like Uruguay, no one defends better to spring a counter attack and win 1-0 better than Sweden.

Son netted two goals in the tournament, including the second goal against Germany.

"But now we are at a World Cup, it's a new cycle, a new format", said coach Tite in an attempt to keep feet on the ground. In a tight final outing, goals from the captain and Marcos Rojo - the latter coming in the 86th minute - secured the win they needed to advance against a gusty young Nigeria team.

They could however be exempted from service should South Korea win the Asian Games later this summer.

After a thrilling group stage, the 2018 World Cup is about to really kick into gear.

Mohamed Salah considering retirement over political controversy with Chechen leader
Mohamed Salah is not considering retiring from worldwide football, according to Egyptian FA board member Essam Abdel Fattah. His World Cup experience has been traumatic on two fronts, though.

Brazil are favourites to win the World Cup, but Mexico promise to provide a stern test, with CONCACAF's sole remaining representatives having already contributed to holders Germany being dumped out early.

After winning so much, either with the national team or their clubs, the 2014 world champions lacked the hunger for victory that characterised their side in Brazil, where they routed the home nation 7-1 on their way to the title.

A rich seam of talent all appearing to peak at the same time makes Belgium genuine contenders, although the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were knocked out of the European Championships by Wales two years ago.

So after the drama of the last fortnight, who is best set to go far in the knockout rounds?

The game plan is simple and Sweden appear to be able to execute it.

Concluding the round of 16 is Colombia v England, with both sides likely to be thinking ahead to a possible clear run to the semi-finals due to being paired with Sweden and Switzerland in the last eight. The Scandinavians used their physicality and brute strength - and some clinical finishing - to take down both Mexico and South Korea, while almost taking a point off Germany. Poland were eliminated after defeats to Senegal and Colombia, who consequently had a chance of qualifying following an opening-day defeat to Japan.
