Preview – World Cup: Day 18

Brazil Mexico

With Germany out of the World Cup, today sees the remaining two highest-ranked sides take part in the second round.

First up are Brazil, who after a shaky start ended up securing the top spot in Group E. They take on Mexico, who only came second in their group on goal difference but having knocked out the champions will still be feeling confident going into the match.

Elsewhere Belgium, who topped England’s group on Thursday, will play against Japan, whose last match ended in controversy when they ended up not really playing at all just to secure their place in the next round. They won’t be able to do that here.

Brazil v Mexico is on ITV at 14.30 (kick-off 15.00).

Belgium v Japan is on BBC One at 18.30 (kick-off 19.00).
