Meanwhile, Michael Owen is tipping Argentina to get past Switzerland – and Paddy Power are offering new customers enhanced odds of 3/1 on Lionel Messi and co to secure victory.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction previewing Tuesday’s last-16 games.
Belgium captain Vincent Kompany (@VincentKompany) tweets his rallying cry: “#BELUSA matchday #tousensemble”
A very Everton feel to Tim Cahill’s (@Tim_Cahill) pre-match tweet: “#worldcupday #Evertonday Can’t wait for #USA #BEL #Howard #Felli #Lukaku #Miralles #Ibelieve”
England legend Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) fancies the favourites to unsurprisingly progress: “Belgium and Argentina look solid favourites to me tonight. I fancy both to progress.”
Ex-Liverpool defender Djimi Traore (@Djimi_Traore19) thinks the Belgians will lose in extra-time: “Prediction #WorldCup2014 #ARG – #SUI: 2-0 #BEL – #USA: 1-1 (AET:1-2) #USA win.”
Former Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) give the Swiss some advice: “#ARG v #SUI 5pm. Huge task for Inler/Behrami today to shackle Messi but if they can, convinced Shaquiri… #talkSPORT”
England legend Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker): “We’ve got both today’s games on @BBCOne which is splendid. Argentina v Switzerland followed by Belgium v USA. All starts at 4.30.”
Ex-Norwich striker Darren Huckerby (@hucks6dh6) previews the action rather more succinctly: “1 hour till it gets Messi! WorldCup2014”
Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone (@Huddz8) just wants to see goals: “Not many better attacking teams on paper than the Argentina team! The Swiss have had a good tournament though, expecting goals”
Finally, Neil Mellor (@NeilMellor33) reckons Belgium are in for a tough night: “I think the USA are a decent side and will make it a tough game for the Belgians.First we get to see the genius of Messi! #WorldCup”
