Soccer: World Cup-Brazil vs Mexico Witters Sport-USA TODAY Sports

We are down to the final eight. The 2018 World Cup quarterfinals kick off tomorrow and Russia, France, England, Croatia, Uruguay, Brazil, Belgium, or Sweden will fight to reach the semifinals and keep their chance of lifting the World Cup trophy alive.

Tomorrow, we have two matches as Uruguay takes on France and Brazil faces Belgium. This is the “tough” side of the bracket, and the winners will square off July 10th in Saint Petersburg. On Saturday, it’s the other side of the bracket, as Sweden battles England and Croatia will try to knock off hosts Russia. For those teams, a semifinal date in Moscow July 11th is at stake.

What to watch for

Can Russia keep up the magic? The lowest ranked team at the World Cup has made it to the quarterfinals, knocking off Spain in the Round of 16 on penalties. Can they keep up the play and the magical run? They face a tough team in Croatia and may need a couple goals to get back to Moscow.

Will Brazil-Belgium live up to expectations? This match tomorrow feels more like a World Cup final with both teams the top ranked remaining teams in the tournament, Brazil at #2 and Belgium at #3. They both also like to play a bit more open, which could make for some beautiful soccer. Will this live up to the hype, or will it be a slugfest that leaves the winner battle-tested?

Can Sweden defy the odds? Most people in England think that now they have finally exorcised the demons of the penalty shootout in their win against Colombia, the trophy is finally coming home. However, Sweden has been the most organized team defensively in this tournament. Can they sneak a goal and then hold on? Or is England destined to get to Moscow?
