The quarterfinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup get underway today and Saturday in Russia, with France taking on Uruguay at 10 AM ET/7 AM PT in Nizhny Novgorod, followed by Brazil facing Belgium in what is likely the highest-profile game of the stage at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT in Kazan.
France, the 2008 World Cup winner, finished first in its Group C then outscored Argentina 4-3 in the Round of 16 to advance. Uruguay, the Group A winner and two-time World Cup champ, didn’t concede a goal in the group stages before bouncing defending European champ Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo 2-1 in the first round of the knockout stage.
Brazil, the five-time World Cup winner, and Belgium feature two of the most talented teams in the field, with Brazil taking Group E then rolling (sorry, Neymar) past Mexico 2-0 in the Round of 16. Belgium had a less stable Round of 16 game, needing to come from two goals down to beat Japan 3-2 thanks to an extra-time goal.
