2014 World Cup…round of 16 Day 1

For Saturday's matches.  Consistent with prior editions, the team I want to win is bolded.

Brazil over Chile - Bokolis is in one of those pools.  Since my ultimate rooting interest is anybody but Brazil, I thought about bouncing Brazil with Chile (on PKs)- I was the only one in the pool who eliminated Spain in the group stage- in the round of 16, but didn't want to blow open the bracket.  I think the Colombians are going to take care of that for us.  Brazil are going to let us know in this match whether they are going to win the tournament.

Colombia over Uruguay - You saw how Uruguay played without Suarez against Costa Rica.  Bokolis will watch to see if Colombia are serious about knocking off Brazil.
