Ger­many mid­fielder Bas­tian Sch­we­in­steiger ac­cused quar­ter­fi­nals ri­val Ar­gentina of show­ing no re­spect for op­po­nents and ref­er­ees. “You can see it in their be­hav­ior,’’ he said. “They push, they shove, they try to in­flu­ence ref­er­ees.’’

Ghana could be­come the first African team to make the semi­fi­nals by beat­ing Uruguay. Pre­vi­ously, Cameroon in 1990 and Sene­gal in 2002 got to the fi­nal eight.

Mid­fielder Elano will not play for Brazil in Fri­day’s World Cup quar­ter­fi­nal against the Nether­lands be­cause of a right an­kle in­jury, but the Brazil­ians have no short­age of good op­tions.

Nige­ria pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan sus­pended the na­tional team from in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion for two years af­ter a poor show­ing at the Cup.
