It's the beginning of the end for group play.  That means two games will be going simultaneously in each time slot.  At 10:00 it's Mexico-Uruguay (ESPN) and France-South Africa (ESPN2).  At 2:30, it's Nigeria-South Korea (ESPN2) and Greece-Argentina (ESPN).

Advancement scenarios are here.  In both groups going today, there are heavy favorites to advance, although no one is technically mathematically eliminated.  Nigeria has the 2nd best odds of advancing among the 5 African teams at this point (behind Ghana) at just 22.7%.  So root for them, I say.
