The Group A chapter is closed. The USA have unbelievably topped their group following an impressive 3-2 win from Costa Rica over Colombia that sees the favorites drop into the second slot. Who they face in the quaterfinals will depend on the results from today’s Group B matches.
But none of the Group B teams can afford to be complacent to force an advantageous quarterfinal match as they’re still locked in a fight just to survive their group.
Brazil vs Peru
Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
Time: 8:30pm local/ET
Peru has a chance and it’s name is Christian Cueva. He’s their talisman and he’s the only shot Peru has to make it out of the group stage. They need 5 points and massive goal tally to skip past Ecuador so only a win will do. The same applies to Brazil where Philippe Coutinho’s hat trick in Brazil’s 7-1 win over Haiti, but they could settle for a draw depending on how the earlier game shakes out.
Ecuador vs Haiti
Location: Metlife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
Time: 6:30pm local/ET
Ecuador are really in the driving seat as their final group phase match sees them pitted against Haiti who are the group punching bags. If they can better Haiti by at least two goals the pressure is on Peru to find a way to advance. They need huge games from their midfield and especially from Enner Valencia.
