Spain vs Russia

With favorites France and Uruguay going through on the first day of Round of 16 action, the same should be expected that the favorites are going through on day two. Spain are clearly the more talented team than Russia, but with this game being played in Moscow, the impossible could become possible. But, it probably won’t.

Croatia vs Denmark

Croatia was one of only three teams to win all three group stage games, and they’ll be looking to continue that momentum against Denmark. The Danes are a solid squad, but it’ll be interesting to see if they can keep Luka Modric from slicing and dicing them to pieces in this one.

  2. Refresh the page regularly to keep up with the discussion. One refresh every 55-60 seconds is ideal but if that’s too much then just try for one every five minutes and after every goal.
  3. The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
