In the final days of group play, most groups have wrapped up their final matches, sending 12 teams to the knockout rounds and giving shape to the Round of 16 bracket. Only one group remains undecided in group play.

Uruguay dominated Group A and Russia took the second slot with solid performances over Saudi Arabia and Egypt. In Group B, Portugal and Spain survived to advance in dramatic fashion on Monday, giving the pair a tie for the group with five points apiece.

France survived Group C despite a slow start along with Denmark, while Croatia dominated Group D, with Argentina coming in a surprising second place in the group. And after a thrilling finish between South Korea and Germany, Sweden and Mexico came out on top of Group F.

Meanwhile, teams in Group G have already secured enough points to advance to the knockout round. Although those teams still face group matches this week, their focus will shift to the upcoming round of World Cup play.
