As was expected when the draw for the World Cup was made, France and Germany have played their way into a quarterfinal matchup with each other (12 p.m. ET, ESPN2). France will bet the more rested of the two, having avoided extra time, unlike the Germans, who needed 120 minutes to beat Algeria.
Germany are also suffering from a minor flu epidemic within their ranks. Mats Hummels has already missed a game with illness while seven other players have complained of symptoms, but Jogi Löw says no one in the team has a fever and everyone is fit to play.
Strangely, these teams will both use sensible lineups with players in their correct positions to start this game. Antoine Griezmann is on the left for France instead of a center forward, while Philipp Lahm has moved back to right back for Germany.
