Zambia vs. Iran – 5pm
The first game of the day features African Champions Zambia and Asian side Iran. Zambia looked in control for most of the game beating Portugal 2-1 on Sunday afternoon. Iran also won their opening game beating Costa Rica, but were less convincing.
Close game, but Zambia may have the edge.

The days first game from Group D features South Africa and Italy. South Africa held the lead for a good period of time against Japan on Sunday, but the Asian side won in the end. Italy also lost a close game on Sunday, suffering a close 1-0 defeat to Uruguay.
Italy should be favorites to win this won, a draw may not be enough.
Prediction: South Africa 2 – 4 Italy
Costa Rica vs. Portugal – 8pm
The second group from Group D at the Jeju World Cup Stadium features Central Americans Costa Rica and European giants Portugal. Costa Rica were a little unlucky during their defeat to Iran but lacked a targetman striker. Portugal also suffered defeat, a 2-1 lose Zambia. However Portugal control much of the game.
Portugal win be favorites to win this one, whilst Costa Rica may struggle to progress from the group stages.
Prediction: Costa Rice 0 – 2 Portugal
Uruguay vs. Japan – 8pm
The final game of the day is between Uruguay and Japan. Uruguay looked strong defensively whilst narrowly beating Italy on Sunday evening. Japan started slowly and had to come from behind to beat South Africa.
Tough game to call, but based on Sundays performances we feel Uruguay could edge this one. But only by a single goal.
Prediction: Uruguay 1 – 0 Japan
