The first knockout match takes place this afternoon between Uruguay and South Korea with Uruguay’s three pronged attack looking in good form.
Uruguay manager Oscar Tabarez looks certain to stick with his 4-3-3 formation, with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez joined in attack by Palermo striker Edinson Cavani.
Villareal defender Diego Godin was absent for the Mexico game through injury, but – if fit – will return in place of Mauricio Victorino. However, it looks like full back Jorge Fucile will keep his place in the starting line-up.
Centre back Lugano is the only Uruguay starting player on a yellow card.
South Korea coach Huh Jung-moo is unlikely to make changes from the side that beat Nigeria in the final group game.
Cha Du-ri is set to stay at right back after a decent debut World Cup performance, and Park Ji-Sung and Lee Chung-Yong will again support frontman Park Chu-Yong.
