There's so much at stake for Costa Rica. Group C isn't the strongest. Colombia look excellent, but you'd fancy their chances against the Ivory Coast and they'd be clear favourites against Japan and Greece. Just a point against the group whipping boys and they avoid Colombia.
Gooner, Costa Rica are already through, and a point will ensure top spot, as Iain says.
Brown Dog, I think Uruguay have the edge in attack, but Italy are more than capable of sitting on a match for the right result.
Silver, I think Prandelli's very wise to go to a back three. It gives them a spare man at the back and you want one of them when you're up against Suarez
Brett, as Juve fan says, Prandelli probably knows what he's doing. But if it backfires... he'll have some explaining to do.
My strategy of an in-game Earl Grey has been found wanting on England duty, so I'm going to switch to a Ceylon tea and see if we can see an immediate benefit.
