Sweden v Switzerland: Round of 16 - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Photo by Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images

The final day of the Round of 16 of the 2018 World Cup is here. After today’s matches, we take two full days without any football before the quarterfinals begin on Friday. So let’s enjoy.

The last two spots in the final eight are up for grabs, with the winner of this match then taking on the winner of Colombia vs. England.

In this one, it’s surprising Sweden, who won the group while Germany finished last, taking on Switzerland, who have yet to lose (1 win, 2 draws in the group).

This one is one of the less glamorous last 16 ties, at least on paper, which could make it quite fun in real life.
