A daily update on the action in Brazil

World Cup Watch Daily: June 28

Welcome back, after a day off before the knockout rounds start. Saturday is South American day, with the host continent providing all four teams in this quarter of the bracket. Elsewhere, the city of Austin announced a big watch party for the USA game Tuesday, and the Austin Aztex prepare to host the Laredo Heat tonight at 7:30pm at House Park.

Saturday’s Games:

11am: Brazil-Chile
The hosts are huge favorites in the opening game, but don't count out Chile, who have the talent to spoil the party. Brazil have yet to show their jogo bonito; might this be the day?

3pm: Colombia-Uruguay
