Brazil, which longed to host the World Cup since 1950, sunk into a two-day moderate pace of life after the final matches of the Last 16 on Tuesday. The current global world championship has already delivered a great bunch of surprises and the quarterfinal stage boasts two fascinating pairs of competitors that represent the elite of world’s football powers.
The two European rivals have a history of 25 matches played against each other and besides the six draws the French team enjoys a little advantage of 11 wins against Germany’s eight. The record of scored goals, however, is almost equal standing at 41 in favor of France and 42 for Germany.
No matter how beautiful the match between France and Germany would be, Brazil is totally absorbed anticipating the 5:00 p.m. match local time (20:00 GMT) at the Castelao stadium in Fortaleza, where hosts are taking on restless team Colombia.
Tournament’s so-called ‘black horses’ Costa Rica, which knocked out of the race for the world’s title such football moguls as England and Italy, will play for the first time ever against the Dutch squad on Saturday night at the Fonte Nova Arena in Salvador. The match kicks off at 5:00 p.m. local time (20:00 GMT).
