13:30 | Lima, Jun. 27.

The World Cup 2014 knockout round bracket is set and the last 16 teams have been through after several day of outstanding display of the global best football.
Chile and Brazil are expected to take the field Saturday noon for the first of many elimination games in the ongoing FIFA World Cup.

Sampaoli’s side is coming off a 2-0 loss to the Netherlands, but did pick up wins over Australia and Spain to advance to this stage. Chile plays with great pace and has shown that it is going to put defense first before anything.

Brazil dominated Cameroon and Croatia and settled for a draw against Mexico to cruise to this point in the tournament. Barcelona’s striker Neymar has really set the tone in this World Cup’s edition by scoring four goals in the first three games.

Following, Uruguay and Colombia will meet in the knockout stages of the 2014 World Cup on Saturday afternoon, reported.

Uruguay bounced back nicely from its loss to Costa Rica to be England and Italy; however, considering Suarez won’t be part of this match Tavares’ team will take a major hit.

Meanwhile, Colombia has looked unstoppable through its first three matches, as it simply handled Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan.

The tournament’s final round include teams Argentina, France, the Netherlands, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia and Brazil, Germany, United States, Belgium and Russia.
