England's FIFA World Cup campaign ended with a goalless draw against Costa Rica at the Estadio Mineirão, the result ensuring the Central American side progressed to the round of 16 as Group D winners.
Already eliminated ahead of the match in Belo Horizonte, having lost to both Italy and Uruguay, England threatened sporadically throughout the first half with Daniel Sturridge particularly dangerous – although the closest anyone came to a goal was a Celso Borges free-kick against the crossbar. Costa Rica were already destined for the last 16, having won their first two fixtures, but it was Roy Hodgson's side who continued to show the greater initiative in the second period, Sturridge curling their best opening narrowly wide as they had to settle for a draw.
