UPDATE: Costa Rica pulled off its second shock win, defeating Italy 1-0 on a Bryan Ruiz header in the 44th minute.

The Ticos advanced to the second round with the victory and left England disappointed at another World Cup.

England and Costa Rica play on Tuesday in the group's finale. 

Italy and Uruguay will play for the second spot in the second round. Italy holds the goal differential tie-breaker so a win or tie for Italy puts them through. Uruguay advances to the second round with a win.


It is another disastrous World Cup for England.

The Three Lions will need massive help to avoid elimination after losing a second game in the group stage. Wayne Rooney's first World Cup goal was not enough to overcome a half-healthy Luis Suarez, who scored twice to lift Uruguay to the win.

Suarez, the Liverpool star, scored on a header to give Uruguay a 1-0 lead, then found the back of the net late in the game to lift his country to the win. 

“I’d dreamt of this,” Suarez said. “I’m enjoying this moment because of everything I suffered, the criticism I received. Before the game too many people in England laughed about my attitude over the last few years. This is a very good time for me. I want to see what they think now.”

England has zero points through two games and needs to beat Costa Rica in its final game, plus have Italy beat Costa Rica on Friday and Uruguay in its final match to have a chance at advancing on goal differential.

In today's games...

12 p.m. ESPN - Costa Rica vs. Italy - Costa Rica opened its World Cup with one of the biggest upsets of the tournament, downing Uruguay 3-1, and the Ticos will look to keep it going against Italy. The Italians looked superb against England, especially its ageless star Andrea Pirlo, who completed 103 of 108 passes in the opener.  A win would put Costa Rica through to the knockout stage.

Keep an eye on: Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell, who signed with Arsenal in 2011 but has yet to play for the Gunners. Campbell showed his promise in the opener, scoring once and assisting on another goal for the Ticos. 

3 p.m. ESPN - Switzerland vs. France - The two teams atop Group C will meet in this game. France dispatched Honduras, 3-0, in its opener, while the Swiss got a dramatic late goal to down Ecuador, 2-1. France should be able to find more of a rhythm against Switzerland than it did against the rough Honduras side, which also played a man down. 

Keep an eye on: France's Karim Benzema, who is coming off of a brace in the last game and scored 17 goals for Real Madrid this past season.

6 p.m. ESPN - Honduras vs. Ecuador - The Catrachos will be without Wilson Palacios for this game after he saw red against France. They'll hope to see more of the ball against Ecuador, which showed vulnerabilities to the counter in a loss to Switzerland. 

Keep an eye on: Ecuador's Antonio Valencia, the Manchester United winger who made 29 appearances with the Red Devils in the Premier League this past season.
