And then, there were eight. The elite eight, as another famous tournament likes to call the quarterfinals. By the end of the weekend, there will only be four.

Uruguay vs. France; Brazil vs. Belgium; Sweden vs. England; Russia vs. Croatia

Some big names in there. Some surprising ones. Croatia probably the dark horse at this point. The winner of Brazil vs. Belgium likely the favorites to win it all.

But first, it’s the first ever World Champions and twice-winners Uruguay versus twice-finalists (one win, one loss) France, who certainly remain one of the favorites. As long as N’Golo Kanté remains N’Golo Kanté, they have a chance. Uruguay meanwhile are sweating the fitness of footballing angel Edinson Cavani.

Here we go.
