In group C Columbia beat Japan by 4-1 to top the group with maximum points leaving Japan rock bottom with zero points.
If Ivory Coast could beat Greece then they would qualify alongside them; if Greece won then they would join Columbia in the round of 16,
It was Greece who ended up going through with a last minute penalty after Ivory Coast had got a goal back through Bony and looked to be the team most likely to score!
In group D England took on Costa Rica for pride fielding an almost totally different team to their opening two games. It didn’t make any difference though as we still couldn’t score.
Costa Rica were not the same team who beat Italy and Uruguay and were really there for the taking but the match ended 0-0 with Costa Rica topping the group much to everyone’s surprise.
Italy only needed a draw against Uruguay to qualify. They were doing alright until they had Claudio Marchisio sent off and then it all went wrong for them.
Luis Suarez is back in the headline after allegedly biting Giorgio Chiellini but it was a goal from Diego Godin to knock out the 2006 World Champions out of the competition that should be the main talking point of the game.
Italy have now been knocked out of the last two World Cup’s at the group stages. And you think we have it bad!
