Vote: Which country are you rooting for?

Will David Beckham and England advance?
The United States is out, but some would argue the World Cup is just beginning.

After two weeks and 48 matches across Germany, the original field of 32 teams has been narrowed to 16 squads. The pretenders -- including Bruce Arena's bunch -- are headed home, and the remaining contenders move on to the tournament's single-elimination phase. No more draws and no more coaches keeping an eye on the scoreboard of others games; it's win or go home.

So what's your take on the World Cup action, SportsNation? Which country are you rooting for in the knockout phase? Which sleeper has a chance to stun a giant? And which team will win it all?
