The Round of 16 is off to a flying start, and it's everything we need in a World Cup. The underdogs have been ruthless — Russia taking down Spain and Japan nearly beating Belgium.
Every game this weekend from the Round of 16 was an absolute nail-biter. Two games went to PKs and the world's two best players went out in tight, goal-filled games. It was awesome.

Brazil vs Mexico
Mexico gave a valiant effort against Brazil and had an amazing World Cup. However, that didn't stop fans from taking the exit very hard. This game was summed up by two things on social media: Mexico fans being sad and Neymar flopping.
