The World Cup is down to its final eight teams. All of them are dreaming about being champions.

Here’s how the bracket breaks down. Host country Brazil faces Columbia, with the winner playing either France or Germany in the semifinals. On the other side of the bracket, Argentina goes up against Belgium. The team who wins that match will face off against either the Netherlands or Costa Rica.

The German national team are in disarray, as several of their players have been struck down by illness. Seven German players are suffering from “flu like symptoms” as they prepare for their showdown with European rivals France tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro. In the two sides 25 previous clashes, the French have won 11 to Germany’s eight successes, with six drawn.

The other match tomorrow, Brazil takes on Columbia. Brazil unbeaten in competitive home matches since 1975. The Brazilians have been eliminated in the quarterfinals the last two World Cups. Colombia has a World Cup-leading plus-nine goal differential entering the match, but history is not on their side. The Colombians are 0-6-and-3 all-time on the road against Brazil.
