World Cup Predictions: Sunday, June 27th

Honestly, does this even matter now that the U.S. has been knocked out of the competition? You bet it does. Two more Round of 16 matches take place today, both destined to be good ones. The question is does anyone in this country care anymore now that our guys have been taken out? We'll see.

Germany vs. England - 9am - ESPN

I actually wouldn't have minded if the United States ended up taking second in their group, if for the sole reason they'd still be in this competitive instead of losing yesterday. This a game more than worth waking up for though, as the two European rivals clash once again. I'm having a hard time deciding who to root for, because my whole life I thought I was of German decent, but after a recent family study it turns out I'm mostly English and Irish. With the way England has struggled, you have to think that Germany will have no problem getting the victory, but I'm not sure. I think we see our first penalty shootout of the World Cup (maybe not, this is just an impossible game for me to predict so I wanted to spice it up a bit).

England 1, Germany 1 - England advances on PKs

Argentina vs. Mexico - 1:30pm - ABC

Diego Maradona and his boys look like they are on a mission, and I don't see that run stopping against Mexico. The Mexicans have a good unit, but I think the attack of Argentina is too strong, and we've yet to see the best of Lionel Messi. This contest has the makings of an outstanding affair, but Argentina should come out on top.

Argentina 2, Mexico 0
