    First knockout game of the world cup between France and Argentina should kick start another exciting phase of this tournament.

    Lets see if France pumps up the tempo and become more prominent from hereon after a sedate progress during group phase.

    Argentina have been the most talked about team mostly for their bad performance. However, their already famous victory over Nigeria may have given their fans glimpse of hope for something special from Messi and co.

    Uruguay have been arguably the most clinical team so far of this world cup. With 3 out of 3 wins in the group stages, they will pose another daunting challenge to Portugal who haven't had it easy at all until now and will be heavily reliant on Ronaldo once again.

    France attack hasn't been too convincing in the group phase. Giroud and Griezmann have underperformed so far and Mbappe have remained unnoticed for most part.

    Hope Argentina beat France. France been one of the most boring teams, hope they get knocked out.

    Of course, hope Portugal win...will be tough game though. Portugal havent been particularly great in the group stage but nor have Uruguay.

    Solid unit! Easily the most organized team of this tournament so far along with Croatia and they aren't even boring to watch.

    One thing's for sure, he will get plenty of chances against Argentina's leaky defense.

    There defence has been very good...bar that, nothing special. A last gasp goal against Egypt and a very very average performance against Saudi (didn't see the Russia game).

    Still they dominated in both games. Portugal were very ordinary against Iran and extremely lucky to have won against Morocco

    Scored in all games and kept the control for majority of each. And only team to win all 3 games with a clean sheet. Have been much much better than all other teams and were never in trouble during the game phase.

    Not sure how can someone think that Uruguay havent been great in this world cup so far.

    Exact opposite actually, Griezmann plays in the middle while Mbappe will play as a winger. :usman

    Argentina's defense is as good as Pakistan. France will easily beat them.

    Youre making out as if theyve been playing Brazil, Croatia and Spain as opposed to Egypt, Saudi (lol) and Russia. Like i said, defence, no one can argue over. Other than that...an 89th minute goal against Egypt and a 1-0 win against Saudi (even here Saudi had a couple of chances after they conceded). Hardly 'great'.

    As if Brazil and Spain have given any dhuandaar performances in their respective groups. Its only Croatia and Uruguay who have played good football while ALL other teams in this tournament have struggled at some place. Only 2 teams who can pick up their head on current form and challenge anyone in this world cup.
