Brazil vs Mexico

To date, this World Cup has been a boon for Paris Saint-Germain players. Will Neymar be the next star? Brazil will be the favorites against Mexico, but you shouldn’t count out the Mexicans. Both teams have blazing speed, so the counterattacks in this match should be something special to behold.

Belgium vs Japan

If the group stage of this competition is anything to go by, Belgium should make easy work in this one. Romelu Lukaku missed out in Belgium’s win over England, but he should be ready to rock and roll against Japan. Japan backed their way into the Round of 16, and it’ll be interesting to see the tactic they try to counter Belgium’s high flying attack

  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.
  4. While swearing is allowed within reason, please be polite to your fellow posters and avoid gratuitous obscenities.
