There are no more points, no more ties, and no more Spain, Italy, England, or Portugal. After upsets and exciting finishes, we witnessed Team USA squeak past the Group of Death and Costa Rica surprise the Group of Champions. But there’s a lot more action to come. Now it’s win or go home for the 16 nations remaining in the Knockout Round, which should prove even more thrilling than the Group Stage. This week we looked at all eight games, because, quite frankly, you can’t miss any of them. Catch the action live on WatchESPN.

SATURDAY, June 28
Brazil vs. Chile
When: 12 p.m. ET
Why:  The star-studded Seleção will go head to head against a strong Chile side led by Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez. Leading goal scorer Neymar will need to play at his best in order to top La Roja, who knocked out defending champions from Spain.
Prediction: Brazil 2, Chile 1

SATURDAY, June 28
Colombia vs. Uruguay
When: 4 p.m. ET
Why:  With superstar striker Luis Suarez banned for the remainder of the tournament for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini, look for a lively Colombian team to top Uruguay.
Prediction: Colombia 2, Uruguay 1

SUNDAY, June 29
Netherlands vs. Mexico
When: 12 p.m. ET
Why:  Thanks to the brilliant attacking play of Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben, Netherlands has scored a tournament-high 10 goals. But the Dutch will now face Guillermo Ochoa and a resilient Mexican squad that has defied all expectations.
Prediction: Netherlands 1, Mexico 0

SUNDAY, June 29
Costa Rica vs. Greece
When: 4 p.m. ET
Why:  No one would have bet on either of these teams a month ago, but after Los Ticos upset both Uruguay and Italy, they became a must watch Cinderella story.
Prediction: Costa Rica 1, Greece 1 (Costa Rica wins on penalty kicks)

MONDAY, June 30
France vs. Nigeria
When: 12 p.m. ET
Why:  After unnerving Argentina, Nigeria will look for another strong performance against a French squad led by Karim Benzema, who has been one of the stars of the World Cup so far with three goals and two assists.
Prediction: France 1, Nigeria 0

MONDAY, June 30
Germany vs. Algeria
When: 4 p.m. ET
Why:  Arguably the best team in the tournament, Germany will go up against a weak Algerian side making its first ever trip to the knockout stage. Pay close attention to German striker, Miroslav Klose, who needs just one more goal to become the all-time leading scorer in World Cup history.
Prediction: Germany 2, Algeria 0

TUESDAY, July 1
Switzerland vs. Argentina
When: 12 p.m. ET
Why:  Lionel Messi graced the pitches of Brazil during the Group Stage with a tournament-high four goals and three Man of the Match performances. Look for the undefeated Argentinians to continue their dominance as Messi continues to make his case for being the greatest player of all-time.
Prediction: Argentina 2, Switzerland 0

TUESDAY, July 1
United States vs. Belgium
When: 4 p.m. ET
Why:  Despite losing their final match to Germany, the Americans were still able to escape the Group of Death. Team USA will have an opportunity to upset an impressive Belgian side that won all three of their first round fixtures. 
Prediction: United States 1, Belgium 0
