England qualify if all remaining results go their way

England could still qualify for the knockout stages if:

  • Italy beat Costa Rica on Friday
  • Italy beat Uruguay on Tuesday
  • England beat Costa Rica on Tuesday

England would still need a favourable goal difference from those results, but the group D table would then look like this:

  • Italy P3, W3, 9 pts
  • England P3, W1, 3 pts
  • Costa Rica P3, W1, 3 pts
  • Uruguay P3, W1, 3 pts
