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.
