Europe and the Americas go at it again today for the right to advance to the semifinals.

Argentina vs Belgium - 9AM PT
Netherlands vs Costa Rica - 1PM PT

Argentina try to reach their fifth World Cup semifinal, and they'll face a Belgian team trying to reach their second semi and improve on their best ever WC finish, fourth place in Mexico '86.  The Dutch, meanwhile, are trying to shed their "always a bridesmaid" label - thrice runners-up, they would love to be able to finally add a star to their shirts this time around.

Costa Rica, meanwhile, are in uncharted waters - in only their fourth World Cup, they have already progressed further than in their other three appearances, and they'd love to extend their stay in Brazil another week if they could.

In the US, the early game is on ESPN2 and WatchESPN, and the later game is on ESPN and WatchESPN.  Other countries' viewing options?  Why, they're right here!
