Round of 16 in 2018 World Cup to watch on TV for Japan time

Where are you enjoying 2018 World Cup? After 16 national teams are all present through exciting the group state, I modify the last post, 2018 World Cup TV schedule for all 64 matches to watch in Japan, for foreigners who live or stay in Japan during the World Cup. No need to care 6 hour time difference with Russia from now on.

Japan vs Belgium at 3am on July 3

How about your predictions for the group stage? For me, there’re three surprises, Germany’s lost, Russian’s breakthrough, and Japan somehow go through the group stage with shameful lost agains Poland. Honestly, watching the too defensive game to keep 1-0 behind for round of 16 was pretty annoying as one of football fans. Anyway, let’s see the schedule of round of 16!
