World Cup Soccer Open Thread.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Argentina and Switzerland just took the field in the penultimate match of the round of 16. Argentina will find out if somebody, anybody not named Messi can score a goal for them. Given that Switzerland gave up 5 goals in a group round match to France, there's a reasonable chance the answer is in the affirmative.

The big news obviously is the 4 p.m. matchup between the U.S. and Belgium, which has only given up 1 score in the World Cup so far. The U.S. will have forward Jozy Altidore available coming off a hamstring injury, but your guess is as good as mine regarding his conditioning and whether that hamstring is truly 100%. My guess is no, and for some reason I blame Michael Bradley.

This is the place for all your soccer speak for the remainder of the day, whether you've been an American Outlaws member for the past six months or think American Outlaws is a show on the Discovery Channel. Either way, go America! And . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
