The win sent Costa Rica into the second round for the first time since 1990 and meant Group D rivals England were knocked out. Italy still has a lot to do. They should get at least a draw in their last game against Uruguay.

Les Bleus also became European champions after winning the continental title in 2000. It was Senegal’s first ever World Cup final appearance.

Norway’s comeback came in the final game of Group A as Brazil won their opening two games and Norway drew. It was only Scandinavia’s second win in World Cup matches.
