World Cup Day 19: Open Thread

Celso Sarmento

The second half of the second round begins today with two Euro-Afro match ups:

France vs Nigeria 12pm EST

Germany vs Algeria 4pm EST

While France and Germany are heavily favored, both Nigeria and Algeria closed their groups well and could pose problems to their opponents.

New City boy Sagna will be a substitute for France and ex-Blue Jerome Boateng will be in action for Germany.
