  • England fans celebrated Germany's exit

South Korea's players were unaware they had been eliminated from the World Cup when the final whistle went after their remarkable 2-0 win over Germany which also sent the champions crashing out of the tournament, goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo said.

Two stoppage-time goals from Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min in Kazan proved just that. But Germany got the better of Argentina on penalties in the 2006 quarter-finals.

Iceland started well in their first World Cup - Hannes Halldorsson saved a Messi penalty to earn a point - but couldn't keep the momentum going.

By winning the match and thus the group, Belgium moves to the "side of death" for the knockout round, where four of the top five teams in the world according to Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings - Brazil, Belgium, Portugal, and Argentina - will all compete for one spot in the final.

England's political leaders are welcome to change their minds and come to Russia to support their team at the World Cup now that they have advanced to the knockout stage, Russian organisers said on Friday.

A rich seam of talent all appearing to peak at the same time makes Belgium genuine contenders, although the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were knocked out of the European Championships by Wales two years ago.

Suarez inspires Uruguay to win over Russian Federation
Uruguay chose to change from a 442 formation to a 41212 formation, bringing Lucas Torreira into the side as a holding midfielder. The Barcelona striker blew a kiss to the corner of Samara Stadium where most of La Celeste's cheering supporters were seated.

On paper, it's easy for fans to try and work out how the games might play out and which teams should qualify from each group, but once the players take to the pitch, anything can happen.

Despite bowing out of the tournament quite early, pride was restored following their huge 2-0 win over Germany in their final Group F game on Wednesday.

"How can this group of players struggle with all these basics of football?" Modric has scored in two games out of three at Russian Federation 2018, while Eriksen's shoulders carry both Denmark's creative and goalscoring threat.

Top stat: With nine goals scored in their three group games, Belgium are the top scorers in the competition.

"O Rei" returned for their decisive last group outing against Eusebio's Portugal, but was the victim of another meaty tackle and was forced to limp his way through the remainder of the match as Brazil lost 3-1 again to go out.

A harsh defeat to Germany aside, Sweden have been quietly impressive at the tournament so far, beating Mexico 3-0 in their final group game. "They've been ahead for about a minute and a half, in total, of their three matches and it's unusual to see them struggle as much as they have".
