Who’s Through And Who’s Out Ahead Of The Final Group Fixtures?

Who’s Through And Who’s Out Ahead Of The Final Group Fixtures?

But there are plenty of other teams yet to secure their place in the knockout stage of the World Cup.

Russian Federation and Uruguay have already confirmed their places in the last 16, but top spot is still up for grabs when they meet in Samara on Monday. Iran didn't look the worst side against Spain and there is still a chance they could go through and send Portugal out. The same goes for Saudi Arabia after the lost to Russian Federation and Uruguay as well.

Nigeria Football Federation president and Member of the Organizing Committee for FIFA Competitions, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick will be on duty for the world football -governing body today, when Portugal take on Iran in Saransk.

Iran holds the third spot in Group B, with three points, one shy of Spain and Portugal, with one match to go, while Morocco was eliminated after two defeats.

Boring. Belgium and England are through and meet at 6am on Friday to decide who tops the group.

Australia need to beat Peru, also at 2am, and hope Denmark lose. Les Bleus play Denmark in their final fixture, with the latter requiring a point to be certain of following them through Group C.

Uruguay are now second in Group A on goal difference and require a win to overhaul today's opponents at the top.

The Tottenham star scored twice from the penalty spot before deflecting in a Ruben Loftus-Cheek drive with his heel to make it five goals from two games as England sealed safe passage to the last 16. Should there still be no victor, fair play points will be tallied.

Thus far, the World Cup has been hard to predict, with some of the best teams falling to underdogs and confounding the experts. Japan's Shinji Kagawa quickly opened the scoring against Colombia from the penalty spot after just six minutes of play.

Brazil would be safely through with a win or a draw against Serbia and will top the group unless Switzerland better their result, or match it with a better goal margin.

Argentina need to win against Nigeria on Tuesday and hope that Iceland do not beat Croatia, who have already qualified. A draw against Argentina will be enough for Nigeria, provided that Iceland don't beat Croatia.

Advances with win or draw against Costa Rica OR a Serbia loss to Brazil.

Serbia were unlucky to not get at least a point against Switzerland, so could provide a massive shock against Brazil, although it seems unlikely.

It's crunch time at the World Cup with the final round of group-stage fixtures set to get underway in Russian Federation.

Take a look through the gallery above to see how Uruguay could line up for their World Cup clash with Russian Federation. Uruguay need to win to take the group.

Despite a point being enough to ensure first place in Group A, Russian Federation boss Cherchesov says his side will not change their approach to the game.

Were the clash to end as a draw, first place would be decided on the number of cards received due to identical records elsewhere.
