Despite a day off on Friday, the day between the end of the group stage matches and the beginning of the high-tension knockouts, the excitement didn't die down. If you're looking for a breakdown of the bracket, we've got you covered.

Germany's World Cup title defense came crashing down in the most inglorious fashion imaginable on Wednesday.

Korea coach Shin Tae-yong said he had mixed feelings after the win over Germany as it was not enough to take them through. They went on to win the tournament, beating Argentina in the final. In a tight final outing, goals from the captain and Marcos Rojo - the latter coming in the 86th minute - secured the win they needed to advance against a gusty young Nigeria team.

Only six countries have won the Soccer World Cup in the last 50 years, but a thrilling group stage in Russian Federation has increased the possibility of a fresh name at least making it to the final.

As the squad lined up for a photo call at Incheon International Airport, most of the crowd seemed happy to see them. Joachim Low's team had opened its tournament by getting played off the park by Mexico and just barely managed a win in its next game against Sweden.


"After a European or World Cup, you can judge the work that has been done in the previous two years". It came down to the final game to find the group winners, and Belgium - who made nine changes to their line-up compared to England's eight - edged it with a wonderful goal from Adnan Januzaj.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Germany were defeated by South Korea in their last group game.

Key battle: Xherdan Shaqiri hit a late victor against Serbia and he is his team's biggest attacking threat, with Sweden's left-back Ludwig Augustinsson - who scored their opening goal in a 3-0 win against Mexico - likely to be tested defensively.

The Mexican midfielder now plays for La Liga side Real Betis as of 2017 after a move from Dutch football club PSV Eindhoven.

A win for Colombia, however, will see them qualify ahead of either Japan or Senegal.
