World Cup Predictions Round of 16

Brazil vs Mexico

Connor: Mexico - Let's party. Brazil rightly tries to take the game to Mexico, Chucky Lozano scores a hat-trick going the other way. Amazing stuff. 

Bryce: Brazil - I'm just going to pick Brazil because it's what should happen. But this World Cup is drunk af so I don't know.

Travis: Brazil - Mexico could've gotten an easier draw against Switzerland if it had bothered to show up for the second half against Sweden. Instead, El Tri's Round of 16 curse continues against Brazil.

Belgium vs Japan  

Connor: Belgium - Belgium's looking better and better with each passing day. There's a balance in the side that few, if any, other countries possess. The only worry here is that the team could come out flat in the quarterfinals after this relatively easy road through the competition. 

Bryce: Belgium - The World Cup is drunk but not that drunk.

Travis: Belgium - Japan will undoubtedly be better than it was against Poland, but it won't be nearly enough to stop Belgium, which is playing better than just about anyone in Russia right now.
