WC 2014: 22nd June

USA v/s Portugal. The US took their chances to the full against Ghana and got the 3 all-important points. Whether they can be as efficient against the Portuguese remains to be seen. After their 0-4 drubbing against Germany, Portugal needs to win this match badly or else they will be out. They started well against the Germans until Pepe came up with his usual antics. I see Portugal win this here particularly that Ronaldo will start the match.

Belgium v/s Russia. Both team struggled in their first match and I think that the heat is proving very cumbersome for both. I see this match ending in a draw.

South Korea v/s Algeria. The Koreans were only able to score against Russia in the first game due to the blunder of the Russian goalkeeper. They have a good possession game but the penetration is questionable. The Algerians shocked Belgium in their first match and were undone in the end by 2 late goals. If they can produce the same kind of performance, they can definitely match up with South Korea. I see this match being a low-scoring affair with a draw the likely result.

Win: Portugal
Draw: South Korea/Algeria, Belgium/Russia
