World Cup 2014...Round of 16 Day 4

Argentina over Switzerland - Uhh, what was Bokolis saying- when I talked about the wrong game- about finding out whether Messi & co. are serious about winning this tournament?  Switzerland isn't potent or brave enough to overcome Argentina.  I would like to see this go to penalties, as Tranquillo Barnetta would have the chance- if he gets on the pitch- to be the first person to miss in the PK shootout in multiple world cups.

USA over Belgium - Is this blind patriotism, believing in the American self-confidence, or thinking that Belgium has had a soft ride?  It's probably a combination of all three.  Last go around, Bokolis was 7-1 in the round of 16 (as were the Group winners), with the only blemish being the USA.  It certainly is shaping up for the same, including the mudfight for the US.  Bokolis will bank on Belgium not having its shit together, which will give the US enough time and opportunity to sort out how to get two goals.
