2018 FIFA World Cup: All last 16 matches

European champions Portugal will play Uruguay on Saturday

The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia has reached its knock-out stage with the first of eight matches scheduled to be played on Saturday.

It will be an encounter between Group C winners France and Group D runners-up Argentina.

That match will be played at the Kazan Arena in Kazan.

The two sides have had contrasting runs in this year’s tournament with the 1998 champions not having lost any match so far.

The Argentines, on the other hand, have picked every result to have in the sport – draw, win and loss.

La Albiceleste with Lionel Messi as captain drew their first match with Iceland before losing 0-3 Croatia. A magical finish in their last group game against Nigeria saw them book a place to the knock-out round.

The other last 16 game on Saturday will be between Group A winners Uruguay and Group B runners-up Portugal, who are the European champions.

Uruguay have so far picked wins in their matches played while Portugal drew two and won only a game in the group stage.

The winner will face the winner of the France-Argentina game in the quarter-final.
