STICK WITH US
Thanks for joining us for the final round of games in Group D. England bow out at the first group stage for the first time since 1958, with their youngest squad since that tournament. Costa Rica remain unbeaten in the World Cup group stages for the first time in their history. We've got action from Group C coming up, so join us in our tournament day blog to take in the reaction to Group D's finale and look ahead to the remaining games today: Japan-Colombia and Greece-Côte d'Ivoire.
"We showed today what a good team we can be. Apart from the first ten minutes I thought we dominated."

FULL TIME: It's been an attritional match in Belo Horizonte, and Costa Rica get the point they need to top the group. Los Ticos went closest, with Ben Foster tipping the ball onto the bar from Celso Borges' free-kick in the first half. Daniel Sturridge had several opportunities to grab the winner, but he couldn't manage to end England's poor World Cup campaign with a victory as they finish bottom of Group D.
Gerrard swings in the free-kick from the right-hand side towards Rooney at the far post, but the Manchester United man can't quite get on the end of it.
