7:30 a.m.: Argentina vs. South Korea
South Korea sure looked impressive in its opening game against Greece -- a 2-0 victory. Let's see if they can bring it again against Argentina, which is looking to finish its chances this time around after "only" beating Nigeria, 1-0. Juan Sebastian Veron is sitting this one out due to injury. Leo Messi hopes to get on the board for the first time this tournament.

10 a.m.: Greece vs. Nigeria
Both teams lost their first matches, so the loser of this match virtually goes home. Can Nigeria's goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama continue his fine play between the pipes?

2:30 p.m.: France vs. Mexico
After Uruguay's convincing win over the host nation, they now have the upper hand in the race for Group A supremacy with four points and a nice goal differential to boot. France and Mexico, both sitting on a point, hope to keep pace.
