Wild final of the group stage: Suárez’s tears, Son’s joyplay

1:09

Luis Miguel Echegaray reacts to Uruguay’s heartbreaking exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

In keeping with the drama we’ve seen in the past few days, Friday’s list also brought a lot of great moments.

Just when it looked as though Uruguay would advance by beating Ghana, a last-gasp goal by South Korea against Portugal gave them a 2-1 win in the other Group H match and, more importantly, a place in the round of 16

Group HGPWDLGDPTS1 – Portugal3201+262 – South Korea3111043 – Uruguay3111044 – Ghana3102-23The first two countries qualify for the round of 16

Twelve years after Uruguay eliminated Ghana in the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals thanks in large part to Luis Suárez’s famous handball, Friday’s game was billed as a grudge match for the Black Stars. Up by two goals on Friday, Uruguay looked set to crash Ghana’s party yet again. But when the monitors showed the score of the South Korea-Portugal game, the cameras quickly showed Suárez sitting on the bench, looking shocked.

Uruguay needed another goal to turn the tiebreaker in their favor, but it never came. So Ghana’s schadenfreude will come from the enduring images of Suárez crying burying her head in his jersey, probably the last time the 35-year-old has worn it at a World Cup.

And while the Uruguayan fans were in misery, it was the complete opposite for the South Korean supporters across the city. With the game against group champions Portugal tied 1-1 as stoppage time approached, Hwang Hee-chan’s 91st-minute goal ensured that South Korea would finish ahead of Uruguay in the standings.

It was an especially moving moment for captain Son Heung-min, who has at times been accused of trying to do too much when playing for the national team. But clever play by Son set up Hwang’s game-winning goal, and he delivered when his teammates needed it most.

In Group G, Brazil had already secured a place in the round of 16, but were aiming to finish as the only team in the entire tournament to win all three group stage matches. Still playing without the injured Neymar, the Brazilians couldn’t do much against a Cameroon side looking to keep their hopes alive.

A 92nd-minute goal from Vincent Aboubakar (who was later sent off for removing his shirt in celebration) gave the African team a slim chance, but Switzerland’s 3-2 win over Serbia in the same game ensured that the Swiss they would advance.

Brazil lost their first group game since 1998, and with neither team earning the maximum nine points for the first time since 1994, it’s a fitting way to end what has been a wild start to the World Cup.

USA vs. The Netherlands: Prepare your popcorn (and coffee) to play

Christian Pulisic talks to Sam Borden about his game-winning goal for the USA vs. Iran and looks ahead to the round of 16 clash with the Netherlands.

USA fans, get some restful sleep as you have an early date against the Netherlands, with the winner of Saturday morning’s matchup facing either Argentina or Australia.

Christian Pulisic

Good news for the American fans, as Christian Pulisic can now play against the Dutch. As you may recall, Pulisic taught us what a “pelvic concussion” is after colliding with Iranian goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand when he scored Tuesday’s game-winner that sent USMNT to the Round of 16.

It’s unclear if Pulisic can play the full 90 minutes on Saturday. Speaking with ESPN’s Sam Borden on Thursday, Pulisic hinted that he may be limited in how long he can play.

“I’m going to do everything in my power, with this staff and medical equipment, to make sure that no matter how long I may be in that field, I’ll be giving my 110% no matter what,” Pulisic said. .

As for the Netherlands, coach Louis van Gaal revealed that several members of his team are battling flu symptoms, although he did not reveal who.

Your best bets (odds via Caesars Sportsbook)

If you’re looking to bet on the World Cup, ESPN contributors Paul Carr, Dan Thomas and Dalen Cuff are here to provide key tips on odds, options and futures. This is what we have for Saturday’s games.

Round of 16: Netherlands (-110) vs. USA (+325), Draw (+235)

Paul Carr: I hope I’m not hitting a lot of home runs here, but I like the US double chance at -125. The Dutch failed to impress despite seven points in the group stage, being outscored by 10 and racking up just 2.4 expected goals. Having Memphis Depay back in the lineup helps, but the US got past a better England team, so I’ll get the US to at least take this to OT.

Daniel Thomas: I think this could be a carbon copy of the England game – a tight, uneventful affair. It would take 0-0 after 90 minutes.

Dalen Cuff: Unlike Paul, I’m being a home run here, but I think I’m justified. This Dutch team is not a dominant team. This USA team is talented and has dominated the matches in this tournament, most notably against England. I like the US to advance at +180. However, I think this is going to be a tight affair, especially in the first half. I like the 0-0 in the first half (+145).

Round of 16: Argentina (-540) vs. Australia (+1600), Draw (+525)

Carr: Australia advanced to the knockout stage, but that doesn’t mean they’re a particularly good team. Argentina had the third most expected goals (6.3) and expected goal difference (+5.5) in the group stage, and Australia ranked 30th with 1.7 expected goals and 31st with a difference of goals of -4.1. Also, Argentina has Lionel Messi. I will gladly put the 1.5 goals at -160, and I am tempted by Argentina -2.5 at +170.

Thomas: This has to be a victory for Argentina. So where can we find any value in this game? I will take an assist from Ángel Di María at +125.

Cuff: There is no value here. I’m not willing to bet the 2.5 for more money, so I’m going to check.
