The first game of the day is Japan vs Paraguay. The game should be pretty interesting. Many figure that Paraguay will win, but Japan is a tough team in its own right. Both seek to move on to the quarterfinals, and neither will let the other team just slip right in. The game takes place at 9:00 AM CDT on ESPN.
The second game of the day is Spain vs Portugal. Make no mistake - Spain is favored to win. Spain previously held the #1 slot in the FIFA rankings, but before the World Cup tournament, Brazil snuck in and took that honor. Spain is still favored to win over Portugal, although an upset in this match wouldn't be as much of a shocker as in some circles. The match takes place at 1:30 CDT on ESPN.
The winners of today's matches will go on to the quarter final game which will be played on July 3rd at 1:30 PM CDT on ESPN.
Yesterday's matches brought Argentina and Germany into the quarterfinals, and the two countries will face off against each other on July 3rd at 9:00 AM CDT on ESPN
