On the same morning, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo will look to lead his nation pass Uruguay into the quarterfinals.
Tournamanent hosts Russia will need to beat Spain to progress to the next stage, and Croatia are slated to battle Denmark on the same day.
Brazil and Mexico, Belgium and Japan, Sweden and Switzerland, Colombia and England are the remaining Round of 16 matchups.
