  • France's Kylian Mbappe was incredible against Argentina

Brazil defeated Mexico who themselves knocked Germany out of World Cup at the group stage. So they thought it was the best tactics for them, and I think they made the right decision.

Samara is due to host England's quarterfinal game against Sweden on Saturday. Eight of the best sides aided by some strong attacking play and fortuitous penalty shootouts are now waiting in the wings to play another high-pressure match while carrying the burden of expectation of an entire nation.

Not many expected to see a Russian Federation vs Croatia quarter-final at the World Cup this summer but that is what we have on Saturday evening in Sochi.

"Uruguay have so many assets, so many qualities", said France coach Didier Deschamps. "For fans' comfort we made a decision to organise an additional space to watch the games near the Spartak stadium", Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin wrote on Twitter. Brazil, the tournament favorites, are against the heavily tipped Belgium side.

‘Families Belong Together’ marches planned Saturday in NM
More than 16,000 had RSVP-ed on Facebook for the "Families Belong Together" march , and Daley Plaza began filling up by 10 a.m. Pramila Jayapal put out a call for protests less than two weeks ago, and they've been "overwhelmed" by the response.

The way the Red Devils came from 2-0 down to beat Japan 3-2 in the last 16 was obviously a good thing, but I think the fact they went behind in the first place shows why they are not going to win the tournament. Even in the round of 16, they somehow managed to win in the penalty shootout and qualified for the quarters.

After over a month of matches, the 2018 World Cup will conclude on Sunday 15 July. Both teams are packed with attacking talent, so surely we'll see plenty of goals?

"The difference is we haven't won a World Cup, it's as simple as that ... you go into a tournament when you don't have the know-how to win the tournament", Martinez said.

The victor of the tie will face either England or Sweden, who also play on Saturday, in the last four at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium next week. Although disappointing at times, they've done what's necessary and had what it takes. Of course, the game (in the eyes of soccer analysts) never should have gotten that far, with England giving up the equalizer to Colombia in the 93rd minute of play. Spain was one of the tournament's favourites but could not defeat one of the weakest teams on paper. This meant that for every C-Note wagered we got $610 in return on one of the most uniquely talented teams in the competition. Germany being undone by Mexico, Egypt and worldwide sensation Mohammed Salah having their first run out in 28 years but winning nothing, Argentina surviving a scare early on, Icelandic hearts with hope and even Iranian players giving European giants Spain and Portugal a run for their money.
