Sweden qualified for this spot with their hammering victory over Mexico on the final matchday of the group stage. Despite their last second loss against Germany, Sweden showed that they are no joke, and if Switzerland want to advance, they’ll need some luck on their side. Can Xherdan Shaqiri do something good and lead Switzerland to the quarterfinals?

Colombia vs England
Most of us will be pulling for James Rodriguez and Colombia to win this game. Whichever one of these teams wins this match, they’ll be the favorites to make it to the semifinal. James may be available for the match but will likely be a last minute decision. Colombia will need to be on their A-game to beat England, but we can all hope it’s possible.

- 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.
