UPDATE: England leaves the 2014 World Cup without earning a win after playing to a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica. With Uruguay’s win over Italy in the other Group D match, Costa Rica wins Group D.
Much like Spain yesterday, England is seeking it’s first win of the 2014 World Cup after a surprising elimination in group play. But unlike Spain, who played a winless Australia team, England takes on the hottest team in Group D and one of the surprises of this year’s Cup: Costa Rica. Can England head home with at least one win? Having already qualified for the Round of 16, will Costa Rica rest their squad, or will they come out fighting? The match begins at 12 PM ET (4 PM UTC).
