South Korea Players Face Punishment For World Cup Exit

Time to fill in the World Cup knockout-stage blanks

Mourinho, 55, has particularly fond memories of the Mexico World Cup in 1986, and especially a stunning goal scored by Mexico's Manuel Negrete in the last 16 match against Bulgaria in front of 114,000 fans at a raucous Azteca stadium.

A few months ago such scenarios would have been considered surreal but two weeks into this tournament of surprises, the prospect of lower-ranked nations competing in the sport's showcase match in Moscow on July 15 has gained more credence.

Japan squeaked into the knockout rounds in the strangest of circumstances, Senegal missing out on the last 16 due to their inferior fair play record.

Of the half-dozen winners of the trophy since 1970, Germany have gone home, while Italy, of course, never even qualified.

Especially after the now-deposed champions won the Confederations Cup previous year with a rejuvenated team full of talent and qualified for Russian Federation with a ideal record of ten wins.

A draw of two halves? "We got ourselves into a real mess", admitted Javier Mascherano, while France coach Didier Deschamps still seems incapable of getting the very best out of his talented squad.

If you have satellite or cable TV, simply find your local Fox station to watch World Cup games in English, or Telemundo if you want to watch the Spanish broadcast. "We made our way to the top over a period of 14 years - we were the most consistent team in the world for the past 10 years and became world champions".

Southgate confirmed that Eric Dier will play in midfield against the Belgians but declined to expand on how many changes he will make, insisting he is keen for his side to maintain their momentum, win Group G and extend an unbeaten run in all matches that stretches back to last June's friendly.

Can Croatia keep it up?

Christian Eriksen's wonderful goal set them on the path to a crucial draw against Australia which ultimately secured their passage through to the knockout stages.

Top stat: Kane is the top goalscorer at the World Cup, the Three Lions captain scoring five goals to lead the race for the Golden Boot despite sitting out their loss to Belgium.

Kane has the more hard task of facing Colombia, so Lukaku is likely to have caught his Golden Boot rival by the time the quarter-finals come around, should they both progress. Team Argentina was too dependent on Lionel Messi, who has not shown his best game yet. Ask Wikipedia if you're not sure why.
