Group H: BELGUIM vs. ALGERIA
Where: Belo Horizonte. Time: 9 a.m. PDT. TV: EPSN, Univision.
The buzz: Belgium is entering a new Golden Generation with a roster deep in stars such as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, midfielder Marouane Fellaini and forwards Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard. But it better not look past Algeria. Although the North Africans' lineup is a bit unsettled, the team has lost ony one of its last 12 games. Included in that streak are World Cup warmup victories over Armenia and Romania.
GROUP A: BRAZIL vs. MEXICO
Where: Fortaleza. Time: Noon PDT. TV: ESPN, Univision.
The buzz: Both teams come into their second World Cup game unbeaten, so a victory advances one team to the second round and the loser would still have some work to do. Striker Hulk did not practice again and is doubtful against Mexico, which is coming off a 1-0 victory over Cameroon. Brazil hasn't lost a competitive game at home since 1975.
GROUP H: RUSSIA vs. SOUTH KOREA
Where: Curitiba. Time: 3 p.m. PDT. TV: ESPN, Univision.
