Welcome to Day 13 of the World Cup. We have the conclusion of Group C and Group D today. The highlight of today’s schedule is Uruguay and Italy, fighting for second place in Group D.
Costa Rica – England (ESPN2)
Italy – Uruguay (ESPN)
Costa Rica is improbably through to the knockout stages. England, of course, is not. Uruguay needs a win to move on whereas Italy needs only a draw due to Goal Differential.
Greece – Cote d’Ivoire (aka Ivory Coast) (ESPN2)
Japan – Columbia (ESPN)
If Cote d’Ivoire wins, they’re through to the final 16 for the first time in their history. If they draw and Japan beat Columbia by more than two goals, Japan would go through. Columbia will likely rest some of their normal starter’s as they are through into the Knockout Stage.
