Here are Adam Drury‘s picks to get you started…
BRAZIL v MEXICO
Philippe Coutinho –
Coutinho scored the first goal in both of Brazil’s first two matches, and is bound to be influential against Mexico.
The Barcelona midfielder has scored eight goals in his last eight matches for club and country, netting his side’s first goal of the game with five of them.
He’s the most likely to do so again against a Mexico side that crumbled against Sweden last time out.
BELGIUM v JAPAN
Eden Hazard –
While Romelu Lukaku has scored in his last 10 Belgium matches, he has only broken the deadlock in three of them.
Hazard, however, opened the scoring in Belgium’s second game against Tunisia, and is likeliest to get his side off to a good start.
The 26-year-old has scored first in three of the last four internationals he has netted in, and will be on spot-kick duty.
SWEDEN v SWITZERLAND
Andreas Granqvist –
Granqvist is the tournament’s unlikeliest penalty-taker, but dispatched two of them nicely in the group stage.
And in what is likely to be a tight match between two defensive teams, his cool head could prove the difference.
The former Wigan defender has scored five goals in his last 12 internationals, opening the scoring with three of them.
In the absence of reliable attackers, Granqvist is the best bet.
COLOMBIA v ENGLAND
Radamel Falcao –
England struggled to deal with crosses in all three of their group games, so Falcao’s penalty-box instincts marks him out as the best bet.
The Monaco forward will also have taken note of Jordan Pickford’s habit of pushing goal-bound shots back into danger, rather than wide of the goal.
In the absence of James Rodriguez, he is likely to be on penalty duty, too.
