Today is another day over in Brazil and if it`s as exciting and dramatic football-wise, as the one we experienced yesterday then we really are in for a treat.
Yesterday, in the last sixteen stage we were treated t a thrilling comeback from the Dutch who overcame a gallant Mexico side, 2-1, with the former blue Arjen Robben providing the spark the Dutch needed to instigate a late comeback.
In the other fixture Costa Rica, who topped England`s group, overcame Greece in a penalty shoot-out after the Greek side had equalized in stoppage time.
Today, on the menu, we have,
- France v Nigeria (17:00 UK time)
- Germany v Algeria (21:00 UK time)
The French side, managed by the former blue Didier Deschamps; have gone about their business in spectacular fashion and could be one of the sides to watch. However, Nigeria will certainly give the French a decent game and this is a tie that could be as close as all the others we`ve witnessed so far in the knockout stages.
The later fixture sees Germany (let`s hope Andre Schurrle gets a start) also engage with African opposition, taking on an Algerian side who surpassed all expectations to climb out of the group stages, but can they topple the efficient and effective Germans?
As usual please feel free to leave your views, pre-match, during the match and post match in our comments facility but please, as we always ask, keep them civil.
