The first Newcastle player to notch a goal in this World Cup is Moussa Sissoko. That was Coming Home Newcastle's personal highlight for the beat down that was France-Switzerland. What does Day Ten hold in store? Follow along with us as we find out.
Yesterday in Brazil
Costa Rica CONCACAF'd all over Italy (and England) to the tune of a 1-0 victory. Italy looked flat, and Costa Rica played this match about as perfectly as they could. A penalty was not given late in the first half, but Los Ticos fought through it and scored on a great header moments later. Italy's loss means that England are eliminated.
France demolished Switzerland, 5-2. About the only thing France didn't do right was take a penalty.But, Sissoko did score, and that was awesome. The Swiss did score two late goals to make their goal differential not as terrible.
Ecuador got a late winner against Honduras, as they escape 2-1. Honduras broke a scoreless streak of 510 minutes in the World Cup to take the lead, but couldn't hold on. Ecuador can still advance. They've got France in their next game.
