If teams can not be separated by that then.

Russian Federation and Uruguay have both qualified.

Earlier, Portugal coach Fernando Santos called Iran "the best Asian team" at the moment.

Hierro, who took charge for the showpiece, said he could see similarities between his group and the successful 2010 team.

In a match that was more competitive than most thought it would be, Portugal once again failed to impress, but got the result it needed.

Wins or draws for Brazil against Serbia and Switzerland against Costa Rica will send both through. The 25-year-old goalkeeper will have to be at his very best to thwart Portugal's main man, who will be hungry for more goals after bagging four in his first two games.

Croatia are through. Argentina, Iceland or Nigeria could all join them in the next round. Germany can still qualify with a two-goal or more win-margin. Argentina need to win, and hope Iceland don't beat Croatia.

The victor of Group B will play the loser of Russian Federation vs Uruguay in the last 16, with the runner up playing the victor.

"He went to VAR three times and considered two penalties and one yellow card". The winners of Group E face the second-placed team in Group F.

A draw for Brazil against Serbia will be enough for a place in the knockout stage.

After the nightmares that are Groups E and F, Group G is remarkably straightforward. A win would take Serbia through and a draw could be enough if Switzerland lose by two. The South Americans, behind a winning free-kick goal from Luis Suarez, pounded Russian Federation 3-0 to win the group with nine out of nine possible points.
