Costa Rica top group after 0-0 draw with England

Costa Rica marched into the second round of the World Cup proudly top of a Group D containing three former winners after a 0-0 draw with already-eliminated England today.

Costa Rica, assured of progress before kickoff, comfortably held their own against an England team showing nine changes from the team beaten by Uruguay in a game short on goalmouth action or any real tension.

England keeper Ben Foster touched a curling free kick from Celso Borges on to the bar in the first half while Daniel Sturridge sent two shots just wide for an experimental England team hoping to restore some pride after being eliminated at the group stage for the first time since 1958.

Costa Rica finish on seven points and will face the runners up from Group C - likely to be one of Ivory Coast, Japan or Greece. Uruguay finished second in the group and will play the Group C winners, probably Colombia, following their 1-0 win against Italy today.

Italy finished third on three points with England last on one.
