Today’s World Cup phrase of the day is actually a collection of phrases and vocabulary to describe the process of qualifying for the knock-out stages of the competition. The World Cup group stages are coming to an end and the two top teams in each group will go through to the second stage which is a knock-out round. Many of the top European sides are having difficulty to progress to the second round in this World Cup and we have already seen France unable to make it to the knock out stages after their defeat to South Africa. England and Germany will be hoping to reach the knock out stages today though Slovenia and Ghana will be hoping that they will qualify for the first time in their history.
