Gonna be a very interesting end to this group.

Brazil vs Serbia is like a playoff game as Switzerland will no doubt beat Costa Rica and advance, leaving Brazil and Serbia to fight for the other spot.

Brazil now don't need to worry about Germany anymore, but Brazil must be careful to avoid getting eliminated in the group stage.

Good luck to Brazil. We can't have Brazil and Germany both going out at the group stages...or can we?

Morocco nearly won vs Spain.

Peru easily won vs Australia.

Croatia won vs Iceland.

Korea won vs Germany.
 

Costa Rica will at least get a point, calling it now. :D

Serbia to beat Brazil and complete this great day at the 2018 Meme World Cup.

Would be funny if Argentina went on to win this after most of us thought they were out after 2 games. :D

I'm trying to work out what could be funnier than that last goal involving Neuer's attempted dribble to seal Germany's exit at the hands of South Korea and I'm thinking a Neymar second yellow for diving shortly before Serbia score their second should do the trick....

Crossing my fingers for Brazil to somehow go through in 2nd place so that the draw doesn't get this crazy unbalanced. Sorry Englanders. ;)

This has been a great day already, but surely there's no way Brazil can screw qualification up. If my pre-tournament favourites go out here, then I might as well give up predicting the outcome of this crazy World Cup.

Anyway, I'm expecting plenty of goals, and comfortable victories for both Brazil and Switzerland. Feel free to mock me if they don't deliver.

I mostly expect Brazil to advance here. No disrespect to Serbia but there has to be one big team that gets itself together and Brazil have some fantastic players in their line-up. Of course it wouldn't harm England's chances if they did go out tonight. Or came second? That would make the Belgium game more interesting.

Fancy Switzerland to get top spot here, they basically just need to get a higher winning margin than Brazil right?

So if they win 2-0 and Brazil win 1-0 then the Swiss go top on goals scored.

Dejan Petkovic is commenting the WC for TV here.

Shame he was never able to play for Brazil's national team as he wanted, and as he deserved it. I think he could have easily gotten 20 caps or so if he were Brazilian.

Can't believe Serbia are in this situation, they're better than Switzerland and they're going to ruin my bet (along with Senegal).

So, Gilberto Silva-Ze Roberto-Petković midfield? :D

Idk, Kinda hard to see Petković being better than Rivaldo or Juninho. Ronaldinho later on.

As I said, 20 caps or so, he wouldn't be a starter most of the time, but would get a cap here, another there, etc.

Was Dejan Petkovic the guy with the corner kick goals?

Basically a game of speed (Brazil) vs strength (Serbia).

Serbia is the Balkanic country I sympathize the most, so it will be interesting. :)

I didn't know "Only U" by Ashanti was part of the Brazilian national anthem.

He did score some from corner kicks (like the one below) but he was also a great free kick taker and a player with great technique and vision in general. And he speaks better Portuguese than most Brazilian players.

Irrati in charge of VAR room alert.

Krstajić taking the risk with Ljajić instead of Milivojević.

Sergej will play in a more familiar role now.

Willian has been so poor in this tournament. His crossing is rubbish and he can't beat a man, which doesn't make for a very useful winger.

Serbia holding their own, looking a bit of a threat especially from set-pieces. Brazil countering well, can't give them space.

Marcelo off injured or ill.

 

Willian is having a poor tournament, lucky to still be in the side, especially after Douglas Costa's cameo vs Costa Rica.

Nothing really. Marcelo injured and Jesus in offside a couple times.

Marcelo going off for Brazil after about 6 minutes. Other than that, nothing.
