The first battle ended. Now it’s time for single-elimination tournament in which teams play each other in one-off matches. It begins with the “round of 16″ in which the winner of each group plays against the runner-up of another group (A/B, C/D, E/F, G/H). This will be followed by the quarter-finals, the semi-finals, the third-place match and the final. In this stage you’ll decide the winner of each match through the express poll.

Below there are the blogs and magazines that will “fight” for the final victory.
