Teams From the Americas Take a Bite out of 3 Former Champions (Spain, England, Italy) Who Head Home Early...




Tuesday's highlights included: Costa Rica 0-0 England (the Ticos of Central America win Group D); Uruguay 1-0 Italy (Luis Suárez at it again, as South America's La Celeste KO's Italy); Colombia 4-1 Japan (South Americans easily top Group C); Greece 2-1 Côte d'Ivoire (with Samaras' stoppage time PK winner).

Four Groups have now finished opening round play, with eight teams including six from the Americas advancing -- Brazil, Mexico, Netherlands, Chile, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Colombia and Greece.

In the process, England captain Steven Gerrard claims that the number of young players with the hunger and desire to play for England's national team is rapidly decreasing because of the money in the professional club game. Well, England didn't show much hunger as they go home without a single win -- ouch! Italy's coach Prandelli resigned right after his team got done by a thumping header by Uruguay's captain Godin -- that smarts! And, Spain no longer rule international football -- the King is dead, long live the new King.
