WC 2014: 28th June

Brazil v/s Chile. This is the first real test for the Samba boys. Chile are no slouch and they will definitely fancy their chances of an upset if the Brazilians fail to show on the day. I think there is more upside to this Brazil team from what they have shown so far and their play will keep improving as they progress through the knockout stages, so long as they don't get eliminated in the process. Neymar so far has been the star of the tournament and will be a constant threat to a suspect Chile defence. As long as the occasion does not get to the hosts, they should prevail.

Columbia v/s Uruguay. First, good riddance Luis Suarez. Great football player but terrible person to have on the pitch. Let's face it, he'll never learn and probably does not get what the fuss of his actions is all about. Even without Suarez, I actually think Uruguay can win this game. Columbia have been fantastic winning all their 3 matches in an arguably weak group. I just think that they might lack the experience and are not seasoned enough against this take-no-prisoners Uruguayan team. It might take past the 90 minutes but I think that Uruguay will be celebrating in the end.

Qualify: Brazil, Uruguay
