Colombia's Group C clash with Greece gets the Super 6 action kicked off at 1700 BST on Saturday before Uruguay v Costa Rica and England's opening game against Italy in Group D complete the matches on the first day.

Sunday sees the second half of the Super 6 contests take place. Switzerland meet Ecuador in Group E to get the competition back under way before France face Honduras and Argentina clash with Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Our Chris Hammer offers his predictions for the six matches.

Colombia 1 Greece 1 – Colombia will be frustrated by hard-working Greece

Uruguay 2 Costa Rica 1 - Uruguay to get off to a winning start – but it won’t be easy

England 3 Italy 1 - England can come flying out of the blocks against out-of-form Italy

Switzerland 0 Ecuador 0 - Don’t expect any thrills in this game

France 2 Honduras 2 - This is my pick for one of the surprise results of the group stage

Argentina 1 Bosnia 0 - Argentina will find the going tough in their opener
