FIFA World Cup 2014: Brazil vs Chile, Colombia vs Uruguay Live Game Thread

Colombia hopes to spoil Brazil's World Cup - Elsa

Round 16 kicks off after a day of rest as every game becomes win or go home.

Brazil vs Chile

Kickoff 11amCT

The game against Chile may prove to be the toughest test for the host nation so far this World Cup. Brazilian star Neymar has already scored four goals in three games and will be looking to score more against Chile. The teams mid-field has looked completely disconnected for much of the tournament so far. Oscar and Fred have mixed performance that have included poor passes and quite a bit of miscommunication. Dani Alvez has looked shaky in the back for Brazil. Despite a number of underperforming players the teams 4-1 win over Cameroon got Brazil out of their group in first place. Chile are just one win away from their best ever finish in the World Cup. Chile's back pair of Francisco Silva and Mauricio Isla will be in charge of shutting down Neymar and his dangerous attack. While Chile will need Barcelona's Alexis Sanchez to create and score goals something he is more than capable of doing against Brazil's shaky defense.

Colombia vs Uruguay

Kickoff 3pmCT

Uruguay will have a little less bite on the team as Luis Suarez is suspended for nine international matches and four months of football activity after biting Giorgio Chiellini while playing against Italy. Suarez was a big part of the team winning two games in the group stages. Edinson Cavani will need to step up in Suarez's absence to help get this team through to the next round. The team is also hoping that the 2010 World Cup version of Diego Forlan will show up any time now. Colombia won Group C posting a perfect record to make it to the Round of 16. The team has already scored nine goals and had a goal differential of +7. James Rodriguez has scored three of those goals with one of them coming against Japan. The team opted to rest a number of their starters in the game against Japan yet the team still won the match 4-1.
