Hell of a run for Japan, two titanic upsets over European powers. So cool for them.

So does this round rank them by won loss record, by the goals for and against differential or something else?

By points, teams get three points for a win and one for a draw.
In case of a tie it comes down to goal differential, if they're still tied then it's
2. overall goals scored
3. direct comparison
4. fairplay

I don't know if Cameron is eliminated or not. But absolute respect for the way they played the last two games.

First time three “Asian” teams have made it to the knockouts?

The bottom half of the bracket with potential England/France and Spain/Portugal quarterfinals is intriguing.

Morocco with a monumental upset over Spain in PKs to advance to the quarters.

Absolute instant classic between Croatia and Brazil and the favorites are out.

What a tourney from Dominick Livaković!

RIP Grant Wahl (American sportswrite) who has died while reporting in Qater.
Wanting to show my respect and many people are posting their highest respect on other outlets or social media.

I created a thread in the podium because I think a discussion on the cause and circumstances will be very political.

Hopefully it will allow this thread to continue to concentrate on World Cup games, while also allowing for a more appropriate place to discuss the loss of Grant Wahl.

I hope it doesn't get ugly real fast and turns into a blow out.
