There was a little of everything in this week’s round of 16 games, the first knockout round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The USA loss was agonizing to watch (at least for USA fans), England and Mexico got screwed (at least they got an apology, so that’ll help — NOT!), and the Paraguay v Japan game was boring as hell until the shootout.
Here is the schedule for the teams that moved onto the round of 8:
Friday July 2
10:00 AM EST: Netherlands v Brazil
02:30 PM EST: Uruguay v Ghana
Saturday July 3
10:00 AM EST: Argentina v Germany
02:30 PM EST: Paraguay v Spain
Of these four matches, the bookmakers have Spain as the largest favorite, while the odds on the Argentina v Germany game suggest that this will be the most even of the matchups. Also look for the Argentina v Germany game to be the highest scoring of the games, and the Uruguay v Ghana game to be the lowest scoring.
