- Friday afternoon saw Group H settled, with Spain finishing top of the group having won all their games, including a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia this afternoon.
The Ukraine finished second, beating Tunisia 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Andrei Shevchenko, who, let’s add because we want to, missed AC Milan’s vital penalty in the 2005 European Cup final defeat to Liverpool.
- France scraped through to the next round, finishing second in Group G. After drawing both of their first two games of the tournament, the French beat Togo 2-0 on Friday night to book a second round place.
And Switzerland ran out group winners thanks to a 2-0 victory over South Korea.
- Friday’s results mean that Spain meet France in the second round of the World Cup on Tuesday night and Switzerland face the Ukraine on Monday night.
