FIFA World Cup 2010: Round of 16 Preview (Groups A and B)

The knockout phase in the FIFA World Cup has provided some incredible games, ones that will go down in history.

The round of 16 in South Africa is the first time during the tournament that two teams will approach each other knowing that anything but a win won't be sufficient to qualify them to the next round.

With the completion of the group stage for both Groups A and B, I felt it would be important to analyze each team's performances thus far in the World Cup and evaluate their chances of progressing to the next stage.

Uruguay has been tactically sound on the defensive end, which led them to qualify above Mexico in first place.

Argentina showed its potential by beating all three opponents in Group B and qualifying to the round of 16 above South Korea.

The opening games in the knockout rounds will see Uruguay face South Korea and Argentina face Mexico.
