We've reached the halfway stage of the Brazil World Cup and many people would argue that this is when the fun really starts as the knockout stages begin on this Saturday.
First up are hosts Brazil who take on Chile.
Brazil have generally been playing well with star player Neymar scoring four times in three games.
But Chile were also impressive in wins over Australia and Spain to book their passage from Group B.
That match kicks off at 1AM, Sunday, Korea time.
After that, two more South American teams -- Colombia and Uruguay -- go head-to-head at 5AM, Sunday, Korea time.
Uruguay will be without star striker Luis Suarez who is banned for biting an Italian player in their last game.
Meanwhile, the Korean squad, who were eliminated after losing ONE-NIL to Belgium in their final group game, will arrive back in Korea on Monday morning.
