Gabriel Rossi

In today's matches, four teams face elimination if beaten by their group opponents.

This post will be updated with scores and line-ups as they are announced.

Colombia vs Ivory Coast

Colombia XI: Ospina, Zapata, Yepes, Sanchez, Armero, Aguilar, Gutierrez, Rodriguez, Cuadrado, Ibarbo, Zuniga

Ivory Coast XI: Barry, Boka, Zokora, Tiote, Gervinho, Bony, Gradel, Aurier, Y Toure, Serey, Bamba

FT: Colombia 2-1 Ivory Coast

Uruguay vs England

Uruguay XI: Muslera, Godin, Pereira, Rodriguez, Caceres, Gimenez, Lodeiro, Arevalo, Gonzalez, Cavani, Suarez.

England XI: Hart, Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Rooney, Welbeck, Sturridge.

In progress.

Japan vs Greece

To be announced.

Ivory Coast find themselves in a great position to advance, having already beaten Japan. Colombia, the other winners in the group, will want to qualify for the next round today too.

Japan's players have impressed with their technical skill and flair, but have fallen short in recent tournaments. In their last game they dominated for nearly the entire match, and were winning for most of it, before losing to two late goals as Ivory Coast rallied with the substitution of Didier Drogba. In a tournament with few draws in the early days of the competition, they are another team facing elimination.

In today's headliner, England could face elimination if an unfancied and sluggish-looking Uruguay manage their first win of the tournament.

Happy chatting.
