Samarth, I think that the winner of this QF will be overwhelming
favourites to win the SF and the final. However seeing the way this WC
has been going, anything is possible. Come to think of it, Brazil were
fortunate in a way to beat Belgium because I certainly did not see
anything wrong with the header of Wilmots which would have given them
the lead. And it probably would have been a wholly different game. As
such, I would not go to the extent of saying 'virtually assured' of a
place in the final because upsets seem very possible this year.

Probably true but Japan (if they get through) will have virtually the
whole stadium rooting for them and that can be a fantastic plus. On
the other hand Senegal have shown they have the speed and have already
seen off France and Denmark. Could be fascinating.
Of course nobody is mentioning USA who in the QF will have to play a
German side which has not looked very impressive despite their 8-0
triumph over the outclassed Saudis.
