World Cup June 19: Schedule, how to watch, and can England right the ship?

Colombia-Ivory Coast! Uruguay-England! Japan-Greece! Join us for day eight of the World Cup!

Clive Brunskill

I'm not sure if I've stopped laughing at the plight of Spain yet. I think Aaron summed up the reasoning best:

Unfortunately, yesterday's results mean that Chile and the Netherlands won't have quite as much to play for when they meet next week, and that could put a bit of a damper on what should have been an amazing match.

But before we get there, we've got all of Group C going today, and there's no chance we settle everything. Colombia and the Ivory Coast are both sitting on three points but they play each other, while Japan gets a shot at the steadfast porous Greek defense. But in the match that most people reading this care about, England get to fight for survival by playing Uruguay. If the South Americans are without Luis Suarez, this looks as if it's a match that England could win. And heck, even if Suarez can play, England might be able to get something.

But the question is this: we know England can be fun to watch now (which is... weird), but can they have enough of a plan to capitalize on that? Join us as we watch the matches today!

Any Villa players involved?

None today, whcih gives us an extra 24 hours to prepare for Philippe Senderos' continuing adventures on the bench. Thrilling!
