Just to rub salt into the open wound Costa Rica pulled off an incredible win against Italy to ensure their qualification and send England home early.
The World Cup is producing some exciting football and this week we saw some great games including:
- Ghana achieving an excellent draw against Germany
- Algeria running rampant against South Korea
- and France scoring 5 against Switzerland.
We hope even with England's early dismissal from the competition you are looking forward to the start of the 3rd week and some great football.
