New York Right now: New York Today: Exactly where to Cheer, or Cry, During the World Cup
Great morning on this heated Friday.
If you hear bursts of pained shrieks alongside thunderous cheers this weekend, don&rsquot be alarmed: The Planet Cup has reached the round of 16, the knockout stage.
Drop after, and your group is out.
We lately spoke with a handful of influential soccer fans in New York about their teams and where in the city they&rsquoll be watching the matches.
Gabriela Hearst, a style designer and model turned designer, is all in for La Celeste &mdash the Sky Blue, as Uruguay&rsquos national team is identified.
&ldquoSoccer for Uruguay is a religion,&rdquo she mentioned. &ldquoWe are a extremely modest nation of 3 million folks, but with an crucial soccer history and excellent team.&rdquo
She plans on watching matches at a single of New York&rsquos handful of Uruguayan restaurants: Charrúa, on the Lower East Side, and Tabaré, in Brooklyn. &ldquoI will be consuming, cheering, laughing and hopefully not crying,&rdquo she stated.
Because she&rsquos a style designer, we had to ask her what she&rsquoll be wearing. &ldquoOne color only: La Celeste.&rdquo
Bradley Wright-Phillips, an Englishman who joined the Red Bulls in 2013, likes England&rsquos possibilities in this Planet Cup. &ldquoI&rsquom often optimistic,&rdquo he mentioned.
On Saturdays throughout the English Premier League season, Mr. Wright-Phillips enjoyed watching matches at the Hoboken sports bar Mulligan&rsquos, as effectively as the Ashford, a cocktail bar that lately opened in Jersey City. He&rsquoll most most likely catch a few Globe Cup matches right here, when the Red Bulls aren&rsquot traveling.
He has a couple of favorites to win, but he&rsquos also rooting for the squad that comes out of nowhere, as Costa Rica did in 2014, Mr. Wright-Phillips mentioned. &ldquoThere&rsquos often 1 team who just surprises you.&rdquo
Matches resume on Saturday, when France plays Argentina at 10 a.m. and Uruguay takes on Portugal at 2 p.m. On Sunday, Russia faces off against Spain at ten a.m., and Croatia plays Denmark at two p.m.
Austin Brown, singer and guitarist for the Brooklyn band Parquet Courts, told us that &ldquototal football&rdquo was the approach of the Dutch in the 1970s, in which every single player could play any position at any time.
Mr. Brown will possibly watch the final match of the World Cup in England, the day following the band appears at the Latitude festival in Suffolk.
&ldquoPeople in England, it&rsquos part of their character,&rdquo he said. He does, however, look forward to getting in New York for portion of the tournament.
&ldquoIt&rsquos a genuinely great moment to be a New Yorker, where you&rsquore surrounded by a massive international community,&rdquo he stated. &ldquoThe World Cup is type of the best celebration of that.&rdquo

Right here&rsquos what else is taking place:
The mercury is increasing and will take us into the 90s and beyond for the subsequent few days.
Right now&rsquos higher is 91.
There&rsquos a chance that the heat index could jump as higher as 105 on Sunday. So we recommend installing your air conditioner, if you haven&rsquot currently, and seeking for a cooling center, an outside pool or other methods to hold the temperature down in your residence.
