The U.S. pulled off a thrilling win over Iran on Tuesday, but that was just the beginning of the long road to the FIFA championship. The Round of 16, also known as the Knockout round, gets underway Saturday. And one loss will send teams packing.
There are no ties. There are no second chances. And the competition is a lot tougher than the group stage.
The superstars of the sport are still in contention. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal made the knockout round, as did Lionel Messi’s Argentina.
The stakes—and the drama—are high. And while most fans will be home (or at a favorite watering hole) over the weekend, don’t be surprised if some slip away in the early part of next week. If you’re hoping to catch the action, here’s what you need to know.
