World Cup: Mexico v Brazil 3pm, Japan v Belgium 7pm. Read More Details

Mexico showcased terrific form for the first two and a half matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stage. They opened the tournament with a 1-0 victory over Germany and then scored a 2-1 win over South Korea.

But El Tri closed pool play on a low note by allowing three second-half goals in a loss to Sweden.

Now they must bounce back quickly for a round-of-16 clash with one of the tournament favorites in Brazil.

 The Selecao cruised through group play with victories over Costa Rica and Serbia after starting their bid to win a sixth World Cup with a draw against Switzerland.

Also by 7:00pm today,  the Belgian team will be taking on the Japanese team. We should recall that the Japanese team battled Senegal last week to secure a place in the round of 16 and this was only possible by Fair Play because the duo of Japan and Senegal ended with the same point and goals.
