Today's two matches will be hard-pressed to live up to the incredible quarterfinals from this past weekend. Nevertheless, they will be played. In the first match, two teams who advanced on penalty kicks face off as France takes on the miracle-of-the-moment United States. The United States are the favorite, but as a soccer fan, I've learned to take nothing for granted. Sweden was the only team to have an easy go of it in the quarterfinals, so they may have the advantage of rest, but Japan's squad play like a well-oiled machine.

It should be a fun day of soccer, and I hope you all join us in the comments below! Sadly, there will be neither vuvuzelas nor Diego Maradona. But there will be great soccer!
