World Cup Watch: Round of 16 begins Saturday


After 15 consecutive days of as many as four World Cup games a day, the planet takes a breather today before the knockout round of 16 begins at 9 a.m. Saturday on ABC and Univision when Brazil faces Chile; Uruguay-Colombia follows at 1 p.m.

Chile has injury issues, while snubbed Brazilian star Kaka still believes his nation has the firepower to see off its South American neighbors.

Not surprisingly, World Cup interest is increasing in the U.S.
