[BRAZIL 2014] Four games will be played on Tuesday with two berths in the round of 16 up for grabs. The big game pits Italy against Uruguay -- the winners of the first four World Cups and six between them. Italy has the advantage in the battle of the Blues. It moves on with a win or tie.

But Uruguay, which must win to stay alive, has Luis Suarez, who declared himself ''perfect shape'' five days after scoring both goals in a 2-1 win over England.

Suarez says he is continuing his rehabilitation from knee surgery and is ''building myself back up'' to play Italy.

Group D Standings:
6 Costa Rica 2-0-0 4/1
3 Italy 1-0-1 2/2
3 Uruguay 1-0-1 3/4
