Russia 0-1 Brazil
France 1-2 Slovakia
Croatia 3-2 Argentina

Portugal 3-0 S. Arabia
Ireland 3-0 Sweden
Italy 4-1 Germany
Tunisia 0-1 Serbia-Mont.
Holland 1-0 Ecuador

England 2-1 Uruguay
Mexico 1-0 Ghana

Turkey 2-2 Czech Rep.
Spain 3-2. Ivory Coast

Scotland 1-3 Switzerland
Trinidad & Tobago 2-0 Iceland
Japan 2-2 Bosnia
South Korea 1-0 Angola
Iran 3-2 Costa Rica

The biggest surprise out of this bunch has got to be the trashing Germany received in Italy. This kind of result is not going to calm fears that coach Juergen Klinsmann knows what he is doing.

A much smaller surprise is France's defeat by Slovakia, their first since Euro 2004. England needed a 93rd minute strike to beat Uruguay and Turkey got two goals in two minutes by Umit Karan to tie the Czech Republic.
