2014 WORLD CUP
June 30, 2014  | By David Bianculli

ESPN, 12:00 p.m. ET

 
Two more games are played today in the knockout round (the USA plays tomorrow). First up, starting at noon ET on ESPN (with pregame features and analysis 30 minutes prior), is France vs. Nigeria. France topped Group E in the group stage by winning two games and earning one draw, while Nigeria, in Group F, came in second in its group by notching one win, one loss and one draw. Then, at 4 p.m. ET, comes Germany vs. Algeria. Germany ended the group stage atop Group G, just ahead of the US, and Nigeria finished second in Group F. And if you’re still wondering why you should watch this year’s World Cup, you haven’t been watching.  Both of yesterday’s games, for very different reasons, were stunners that thrilled until the last minutes. Especially at the last minutes.
