FOOTBALL: World Cup Predictions - 1st July (YB)

Another two matches from the last 16. I think Spain and Croatia will be going through to the quarter finals. Here are my score predictions for today...

Spain 3-1 Russia
 Croatia 2-1 Denmark

Yesterday's matches... France vs Argentina... What a match!! Thoroughly enjoyed this one, absolutely magnificent game! An early penalty struck well by Griezmann, an absolute stunner from Pavard and then two brilliant goals from Mbappe led to France getting a close win over Argentina. Di Maria's goal for Argentina was nothing short of brilliant though, followed up by Mercado's goal and a very late goal from Aguero in extra time, left them just one goal short of a draw and taking it to extra time. And so France are through to the quarters.

And as for Uruguay vs Portugal, not quite as full of goals as the other match yesterday, but absolutely thrilling nonetheless! A great link up between Suarez and Cavani led to the first goal in the game very early on for Uruguay, an absolutely brilliant goal taken by Cavani. Pepe equalised with an header in the second half before Cavani slammed home another brilliant goal to win the game for Uruguay taking them through to face France in the quarter finals.
