[Poll] Which players have been the most impressive at the World Cup?

Strikers with three goals include Belgium's Romelu Lukaku, Russia's Denis Cheryshev, Spain's Diego Costa while from Africa, Nigeria's Ahmed Musa has two goals.

Tournament favorites like defending champions Brazil, five time world champions Brazil and 2010 world champions Spain, have all been tested by less fancied team, playing out losses and stalemates at the biggest stage for football upsets.

The most likely scenario is that Portugal and Spain advance.

If teams finish level on points, goal difference will be used to decide the final group placings. Australia aren't in the worst spot in that regard, but they still have to find a way through a proud nation in Peru who want to win a match at their first World Cup since 1982. The Argentines would survive with a win and an Iceland loss or draw. A draw between those sides and and an Iceland win means it's down to the tiebreakers again between Nigeria and Iceland.

Toni Kroos' dramatic late victor on Saturday kicked Germany's campaign into gear and they can secure their progression to the last 16 if they match Sweden's result in the final game.

Croatia will top the group if they beat or draw with Iceland. Iceland need to win and hope Nigeria lose to Argentina to go through. In Group E, Brazil and Switzerland both have four points, while Serbia have three points.

Serbia must beat Brazil to qualify but a draw could see them through if the Swiss are beaten by Costa Rica by more than one goal. Saudi Arabia have finished bottom of their group at their past three World Cups. Germany is eliminated if it loses to South Korea by two or more goals OR if it loses to South Korea AND Sweden gets at least a point against Mexico.

Ronaldo against Spain was one of the all-time great individual World Cup performances, single-handedly nicking a point from an opposition that had collectively outclassed them.

Group F may be the deepest in all of the World Cup. A draw on Monday and Russian Federation top the group on goal difference. It can also move on if it ties with Mexico AND South Korea beats Germany, or IF Germany and South Korea ends in a tie AND Sweden finishes ahead of those teams on countback.

Mexico only need a draw against Sweden to qualify, while the latter will go through should they better Germany's result against South Korea.

England and Belgium are guaranteed to progress but their finishing positions will be decided by their meeting on Thursday. Belgium now have three yellow cards to England's two, meaning this could be a battle of discipline more than anything.

Japan need a point against Poland to guarantee qualification from Group H and they look capable of safely navigating their way through.

Japan and Senegal will advance with draws against Poland and Colombia respectively.
