England Near World Cup Exit

Perennial soccer villain Luis Suárez scored two goals en route to a 2-0 Uruguay victory Thursday over England in the World Cup, making it extremely unlikely the country will advance. Meanwhile, Colombia beat Ivory Coast 2-1 on Wednesday, which will give Colombia their first appearance in a World Cup knockout round in almost 25 years. In the final game Thursday, Japan and Greece, which both lost their first games, tied 0-0, keeping both of their hopes alive.
