Brazil take on fellow South Americans Chile first on Saturday morning, with the Netherlands playing Mexico, and Colombia taking on Uruguay the day after.
Costa Rica, Greece, France and Nigeria will feature in the next two matches on Monday morning, and Argentina and Switzerland will face off.
A draw would suit both the USA and Germany ensuring both qualify, however, should the US lose to Germany and Portugal beat Ghana by a three goal margin, its Portugal-Germany and not the US who make it through.
Chile have made it as far as the quarter finals but have a poor record against Brazil, meeting 15 times losing on 13 occasions.
Colombia have not made the last sixteen since 1990, and have met Uruguay on eight occasions, losing six times.
Nigeria and France met once in a friendly, the French winning by one goal.
And groups G and H are yet to be decided, with only Germany, of the finalists holding any pedigree.
