The quarterfinals are looming, but first things first. We need the last two participants. So far, all the group winners have advanced to the next round. Switzerland and the United States will be hoping to change that today.

Yesterday in Brazil

France took care of a very game Nigeria side, 2-0 thanks in part two an own goal from the Super Eagles. France advances to play Germany. Die Mannschaft topped Algeria 2-1 with all three goals coming after extra time. With Nigeria and Algeria having excellent games, SB Nation reminds you that it's time to stop thinking that all African teams play the same.

Today in Brazil

Argentina-Switzerland

Argentina is looking to click in the knockout round.

Don't think that Messi is Argentina's only threat.

We've seen our fair share of drama this round, so no surprises: Argentina is practicing penalties.

Switzerland has seen some unlikely heroes during its World Cup run.

United States-Belgium

The United States are hoping they can upset a Belgium side that hasn't looked its best.

Jozy Altidore is fit and could play a role.

The NY Daily News has a very NY Daily News Preview.

Cancer kids chant "I Believe that we will win" and it's just as awesome as you think it is.

Maroune Fellaini is doubtful for Belgium.
