  • Diego Costa has looked in fine form in the early stages of the tournament

This World Cup so far has been anything but what was predicted and has managed to surprise us all, game after game.

"We´ve seen all the qualifying games, not just those at the World Cup, and we´ve seen they´re a very organised team", Santos said on Sunday. In Group A, Russian Federation and Uruguay advanced with two wins each.

The Swiss will qualify with a draw against Costa Rica, or if Serbia lose to Brazil.

France are through to the knockout round - a point against Denmark would see them finish as group winners.

Croatia will top the group if they beat or draw with Iceland.

What's the likelihood? Argentina are 48 per cent, Nigeria 45 per cent and Iceland 7 per cent to make the next stage. A draw against Argentina will be enough for Nigeria, provided that Iceland don't beat Croatia. "If Sweden loses, it could back in only if it loses by one goal in a higher scoring game, like 3-2, and South Korea beats Germany narrowly". Germany and Sweden could yet be separated by their head-to-head result, which would see the holders through.

"I want to win, my colleague wants to win and it's going to be a tough and strong battle". Slow-motion replays showed a handball by Portuguese defender Cedric Soares that would have been near-impossible to spot live, and Karim Ansarifard then slotted his attempt past Rui Patricio in goal.

Ricardo Quaresma put Portugal ahead just before half-time with a lovely goal from outside the box before Ronaldo failed to double their lead eight minutes into the second half when he missed a penalty awarded with the help of VAR.

Both on six points, they have identical goal totals so a draw would mean top spot going to the best-behaved team.

England and Belgium advance, regardless of what happens; Tunisia and Panama are out, regardless of what happens.

Colombia will progress if they beat Senegal and a draw will suffice if Poland beat Japan.

Japan just need a draw against Poland on Thursday to guarantee progression, and they'll be joined in the next round by the victor of Colombia v Senegal.
