Costa Rica produced a surprise 1-0 win against four-time world champions Italy, a result that sent Group D rivals England out of the World Cup.

England, who had lost their first two games, needed Italy to win to stay alive but Bryan Ruiz's header from Junior Diaz's cross sealed their fate.

Italy's Mario Balotelli spurned a great chance with the game goalless but Costa Rica should have had a penalty when Giorgio Chiellini pushed Joel Campbell.

Costa Rica progress to the last 16.
