Group D - Group Stage

England’s World Cup ended without even the scant consolation of a victory as they played out a tame draw with Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte.

This was a dead rubber after England’s losses to Italy and Uruguay – and there was nothing on show here to offer any belated cheer at the end of a miserable tournament.

Costa Rica’s status as the surprise package of Group D was cemented by a result that ensured they finished top – and will face Greece in Recife on Sunday.

Meanwhile, England manager Roy Hodgson has presided over a dismal campaign.
