One More Day of the ONE Lowell World Cup

In not quite eight hours from the time when I'm typing this, the last day of the ONE Lowell World Cup soccer tournament will kick off. Here's the schedule for the round of 16, which begins at 8 am on Sunday at Cawley Stadium:

Stadium Field
8:00 am: Canada vs. Mexico
9:00 am: Guatemala vs. Jamaica
10:00 am: Brazil vs. Northern Ireland & Scotland
11:00 am: Ghana vs. Colombia

Varsity Field
8:00 am: Honduras vs. USA
9:00 am: Togo vs. Romania
10:00 am: Somalia & Djibouti vs. Vietnam
11:00 am: Ireland vs. Uganda

Togo, Canada and (as always) Brazil look like the strongest sides so far, but anything can happen on day that will see the round of 16, quarterfinals, semifinals and final all played in the span of about 12 hours. The final should start around 6 pm tomorrow night; don't miss it.

As usual, I've taken a ridiculous number of pictures of the tournament so far. You can check out last Sunday's or today's (Saturday's) set on Flickr. Check back tomorrow night for a recap of the action--or, better yet, head to Cawley Stadium for the culmination of the tournament.
