By the end of the day we’ll be down to eight teams remaining in the World Cup. It’s going to be pretty hard to top yesterday’s Belgium - Japan match in terms of sheer drama, but let’s give it a try.

JAN JAN JAN JAN JAN VERTONGHEN! As the World Cup Round of 16 match between Belgium and Japan kicked off, I cheekily tweeted that it’d be nice if Jan Vertonghen , who was one of two Tottenham Hotspur players, along with Toby Alderweireld , to start the match, scored. It’s rare, see, because he’s a...
