FIFA World Cup 2018: Check out all 16 teams and their matches in the next stage

The World Cup last 16 pairings are now complete after Groups G and H concluded their final round of games on Thursday.

Colombia sealed top spot in Group H thanks to a 1-0 victory over Senegal in Samara, while Japan progressed by virtue of picking up fewer yellow cards than the Senegalese, despite going down to a 1-0 defeat against Poland.

In Group G, already-qualified pairing England and Belgium met in Kaliningrad, where the Belgians ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a second-half stunner from Adnan Januzaj.

The goal sent the Red Devils through in top spot and meant England finished second.



Here are the last 16 pairings in full:

France v Argentina, June 30, Kazan Arena, Kazan

Uruguay v Portugal, June 30, Fisht Stadium, Sochi

Spain v Russia, July 1, Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow
