MONDAY MONDAY World Cup Round of 16 LIVE thread

Soccer- round of 16 continues!

Half the field for the Quarterfinals is filled, half to go.

The two winners today will face off on Friday, July 4th.

1) First game today is France - Nigeria in Brazilia. It starts at 9am pacific, 10am mountain, 11am central, noon, eastern, 5pm in England, and 6pm in Nigeria, France and most of western Europe.

On the surface this looks like a romp for France. But when you look looks like an easy win for France. Nigeria's obviously got some good players but as a team...they're gonna do well not to be roadkill here.

2) The second game of the day is Germany - Algeria in Porto Alegre and will start at 1pm pacific, 9pm in Algeria and England, and 10pm in western Europe including Germany.

This match should be closer than the France-Nigeria match as Algeria's defense looks tighter. Still a German win that will set up Germany - France in the next round.


Con game player of the day: Bought With Blood!!!!!!!!!

Tough day point-wise on Sunday what with almost everyone having Costa Rica ranked in their bottom 10. Just a few players cleared 30 in fact as Netherlands is not rated that high by many here. But BwB likes (relatively) them both to the tune of 41 points and re-emergence into the thick of the battle for overall winner in the Con game.

Con Game Sepp Blatter player of the day is %##@!&%#$%^ Um me.

I feel dirty.

Where's Mr. ELO?

958 points. It's kicking our collective patooties right now.

The race for the Lantern Rouge

Davie Porter-Zoo slipped up a bit by scoring 38 points yesterday but is still comfortably in last, Kenny Van Hummel-style.

Updated rankings. Here are Sunday's rankings. Same leader!!! 2 & 3 switch!!

This time with the rankings I have which teams of everyone's top 8 have been eliminated so far with their total points. I say top 8 because it is implied that the top 8 will win their round of 16 matches. That's the hope anyways. So which of your ranked teams 32-25 are out? Perhaps that may give us an idea of who is strong heading into the end of the tournament.
