Paraguay should take them both - payback
Ok. Looks like Korea goes though based on goals scored? 

Watched the replay of that last goal and was like 2 on 5.  Great play by the Koreans or bad coverage for Uruguay.  Uruguay should just let Argentina annex them.

Tough to be landlocked.
I spent a month in Asunción one week.

Being landlocked doesn't seem to be hurting Serbia

Brings to mind one of the classics of UK sports commentary - 'Jamaica is an island, completely surrounded by water...'   :lol:  ;)

Brazil reserves lose to Cameroon - goal scorer loses his shirt, and is sent-off... :lol:   Serbia v Yodellers ends messily, with a mass fracas involving players from both teams - but Switzerland hold on to win the game, and progress to the next round.

I'm sure there is no truth, to the story, that Stadium 974 was meant to be named after a Legend of Qatari soccer, but they couldn't think of one... :lol:  ;)

A couple of Swiss starters are Kosovar Albanian so there was something just waiting to start in that one.  Ah mitteleuropa...

At 2 - 1 it was do-able, which makes losing such a soft-goal even more infuriating. Team USA's persistent lack of quality, in the final third, has been their undoing... :(

The Global Powerhouse put in a good-showing to defeat Senegal, and set up a mouth-watering QF with France. Mbappe sublime, in the defeat of Poland - even overshadowing Giroud claiming the goal-scoring record outright (now one ahead of Henry - although Mbappe is already ahead of Zidane, and already has 33 goals, at just 23 years of age, so it's just when...)

France looks unstoppable. But one never knows for sure. Good luck next round.

I’m going to say Japan upsets Croatia tomorrow.

Thanks, PWC. It's knockout cup soccer, so never say never...Realistically, the Global Powerhouse has many really good players, but France have a stellar player in each third of the field - Mbappe, Griezmann, and Pavard... :roll:  ;)

Here’s the early odds from one source. Should be a good match.

Tough loss for Japan.  And me since I bet on them.
