Here we are, a week later.  The soccer just keeps coming!

Who's On Today's Docket?

Group C: Colombia vs Cote D'Ivoire - 9AM PT/Noon ET
Group D: Uruguay vs England - Noon PT/3PM ET
Group C: Japan vs Greece - 3PM PT/6PM ET

Who's Going Home Today?

Well, technically nobody, since there's another game left for all these teams.  But in Group C, the early game sees the two leaders face off, and if that game produces a winner that team's pretty much assured of qualification.  If Japan and Greece draw, the early result is probably moot, but if each Group C game produces a winner, second place in the group is definitely up for grabs.

Over in Group D, England need a win in order to have any hope of advancing to their traditional quarterfinal penalty shootout loss.

Anything Else I Need To Know?

Probably? SBNation has you covered!

Is Any Of This Glorious Mess On The TeeVee?

It sure is!  In the US, all three games are on ESPN. All matches are on ITV Player in the UK and on the CBC in Canada. You can find other listings at LiveSoccerTV.
