The land that time forgot: Welcome to Kaliningrad, the bizarre venue for England v Belgium... and it isn't even in Russia!
IAN HERBERT IN KALININGRAD: England now travel to a city of ghosts and — it must be said — a place where that boorish song about ‘10 German bombers’ and the ‘RAF from England’ could hardly be more inappropriate. Kaliningrad was Konigsberg, an old German city, when British air power flattened it more than 70 years ago and the collateral damage is still all around. An obscure museum to days past displays dolls and books from a German kindergarten, salvaged from the ruins in 1945.
Rojo to the rescue! United defender volleys sublime late winner to send Argentina into knockout stages and Nigeria crashing out
NIGERIA 1-2 ARGENTINA - MARTIN SAMUEL IN ST PETERSBURG: Ultimately, it was a fabulous volley from Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo that propelled Argentina into the final 16, but this was about him. This was about our desire for one player to stay. Save Messi. That is what the neutrals desired. Argentina — well, they have to take their chances with the other mortals.
Iceland sent packing from World Cup as late Perisic strike maintains Croatia's 100% record and ensures Argentina go through
ICELAND 1-2 CROATIA: One goal in the final three minutes was the equation. Find that and they were through. They could not but that, rather than this result, is what Iceland should remember their first World Cup for. Not that Ivan Perisic thrashed a Croatia winner just as stoppage time approached, as Iceland chased what would have been a historic second goal. And certainly not that they finished bottom of a quite scary group. This was close. Very close. They were excellent against Croatia. Yes, they missed chances and yes, with more guile might well be heading for a last-16 date with France in Kazan.
Aussies are OUT: Guerrero strikes after drugs ban is lifted to earn Peru their first World Cup victory for 40 YEARS
AUSTRALIA 0-2 PERU - CHRIS HATHERALL IN SOCHI: Peru striker Paolo Guerrero, who spent seven months fighting a drugs ban just to be in Russia, scored an emotional goal to knock Australia out of the World Cup in a 2-0 victory played in what was a carnival atmosphere in Sochi. The goal, together with a wonderful strike by Watford’s Andre Carrillo, may not be enough to send the South Americans through — they were already destined to go home — but Guerrero’s journey has been such that it will nevertheless go down in Peruvian football history. The captain feared he would never get to play in a World Cup after being banned for 14 months for testing positive for traces of cocaine.

'I'm amused when people are plotting the route': Southgate not looking beyond Belgium clash as he claims youthful and diverse team 'represent modern England'
Gareth Southgate insists England's focus remains firmly on winning their final World Cup Group G fixture against Belgium as others seek to plot their potential path through the knockout stages and debate whether it would actually be more beneficial to enter the last 16 as runners-up. The Three Lions have already sealed their progress through to the next phase of the tournament in Russia after following up a last-gasp win over Tunisia with a 6-1 thumping of debutants Panama that left them tied with their fellow qualifiers on points and with an identical record in terms of goal difference, goals scored and goals conceded. If England and Belgium play out a draw, then the group will be decided on fair play records - with the two sides currently on two and three yellow cards respectively. If that also finishes level, then lots would be randomly drawn in Moscow.

With back-to-back victories to open the World Cup, including one over defending champions Germany, Mexico's national team has already been anointed by some back home as the best in the country's history.

Neymar saw his successful penalty appeal overturned after review by the video assistant referee, before Philippe Coutinho finally broke the deadlock in stoppage time, with the Paris St Germain forward scoring another to wrap up a first victory for Brazil at the 2018 finals.
