Germany and France start the day in a showdown between two powerhouses. Germany enters the game after narrowly beating Algeria in extra time 2-1. Nigeria played France tough in the Round of 16 but France came out victorious by a two goal margin. This should be one of the most entertaining games to watch thus far in the Cup. The winner of this game has a sincere chance of hoisting the trophy when it's all said and done.
Brazil and Colombia wrap the day up in the 4:00 p.m. ET game. Brazil nervously defeated Chile in penalty kicks as Neymar calmly delivered the winning shot and keeper Julio Cesar played the hero with a few beautiful saves. Behind front-runner for the Golden Boot James Rodriguez, Colombia has surprised fans with their dominance thus far in the tournament. They defeated Uruguay in the first stage 2-0, thanks to two goals from Rodriguez, including arguably the best shot in the Cup to this point. This South American matchup has the making to be a great game.
