Here’s what’s on tap for the World Cup on June 19:
12:00 p.m. ET — Colombia Vs. Cote d’Ivoire
Colombia made a triumphant return to the global stage by walloping Greece 3-0 on June 14 — now they’ll have to buckle down and prove that their dominant win wasn’t just a fluke. Standing in their way? The flashy men of the Ivory Coast, led by the coolest guy in the world, Didier Drogba. Both of these nations are tied for the Group C lead after one game — this match will go a long way in determining who will win the group.
3:00 p.m. ET — Uruguay Vs. England
This is the marquee matchup of the day. But what’s most interesting is that both Uruguay and England lost their first games, which means they’ll both be dying for a win even more today. After Spain was officially knocked out yesterday, it’s very possible that yet another global powerhouse could be virtually eliminated after this one.
6:00 p.m. ET — Greece Vs. Japan
After the emotional high that England and Uruguay will be bringing, this one might be a bit of a letdown. But look out for Greece to reverse their blowout loss to Colombia and get themselves back into the knockout stage picture.
