Predictions for the 6/23 games

The first games of the round of 16 start tomorrow and I think they will be a lot of fun.

Germany vs Sweden
Germany have improved as the tournament has progressed which should be a worry for other teams. They'll have a full squad and with the crowd behind them will be difficult to beat. Sweden are always tough and will make sure that the Germans are not given any space on the ball. Hopefully they can rely on a fit again Ibrahimovic. I think dead ball situations will play a major role in this game. Germany will eventually win it 1-0.

Argentina vs Mexico
If Argentina put in a display similar to the one against Serbia & Montenegro then Mexico might as well stay home. Lavolpe should be worried about his Mexican side, particularly in defense where they have been quite vulnerable. The only way I see Mexico winning this game is if Argentina loses it. Argentina will win it 2-0.
