FULL TIME: Uruguay take advantage of their numerical supremacy and advance into the Round of 16 as the second-place team from Group D after a tense affair in Natal that ended 1-0 in the South Americans favour. Captain Diego Godin's goal proved to be enough as La Celeste move on and send Italy home. Costa Rica's 0-0 draw against England was enough for Los Ticos to take the top spot in the group.
