32 Teams entered, 16 remain.

The crazy results inspired a few incredible scenes - for example, South Korea’s victory enabled Mexico to advance to the round of 16 knockout stage.
So people in Mexico City did what any sane soccer fans would do: they went berserk outside the South Korean embassy while urging the consul general, Han Byoung-jin, to down tequila shots (he complied). .
In Brazil — which still hasn’t quite gotten over Germany’s 7-1 humiliation of the home team during the 2014 World Cup semifinals — several maniacs staged a mock funeral for Germany, parading down a street with caskets draped in the German flag.... Lol!!!

Sometimes, sports fans are the best.

BTW: did you wonder how much some of them will get paid?

My only left choice is Japan lol. But out of the ones who have a real chance, I've no idea.
I was rooting for Germany.

Messi the GOAT will never win a World Cup (unless by a miracle he's still around in four years).


It's a pity he couldn't rise to the occasion in this most tremendous of all sporting competitions.

Because he choosed France... NGolo was born in France in Paris, but due to the french law he can have the nationality of both Mali and France -where he was born and grew up-.

Great game!

France vs Argentina I mean...happy for the young lad who scored for France, suprised to see Griezmann as a top choice for penalties though?

Anyway the only loss is that Messi goes home, tomorrow is a big day too though if Spain loses I'll stop watching this WC, too may good teams left/didn't make it.

Wow. Incredble.

Messi: gone.

Ronaldo: gone.

Who's next... Nehmar?

I guess we put too much emphasis on the "super" players. Usually their National Team members are woefully lacking.
