Confederations Cup enter Playoff Stages

The MZ Confederations Cup is one of the most prestigious national cups in ManagerZone, and was last won by Australia after a classic 5-0 victory over Uruguay. This year Australia lead by eric_the_eel, will enter the round of sixteen against one of the stronger outfits still present in the cup, Panama.

But the most interesting match-up in this first knockout round is undoubtedly that between the number 1 and 2 in the national ranking: Argentina and Brazil. The Brazilians went through in emphatic style after three easy wins and +14 in the goal column. Argentina also managed to win their group in spite of a draw against USA. It will be very interesting to see which of these titans will be knocked out already in the first playoff round.

We're also looking forward to the game between China (3) and Chile (27). This could be a tight game with Chile full of confidence after winning their group. If they win, two of the main favourites will be gone from the tournament already at this early stage. Finally we would also like to draw your attention to the match between Ecuador (19) and Uruguay (22), which should be an incredibly close affair between two of South Americas most promising countries.

Here are all the playoff games:
Peru vs Venezuela
Panama vs Australia
Chile vs China
Argentina vs Brazil
USA vs Costa Rica
Ecuador vs Uruguay
Colombia vs Honduras
Canada vs Lebanon
