Group G Showdown - The Lowdown

25 June 2010 10:06

Find out all the permutations as Group G comes to a conclusion this afternoon with Brazil facing Portugal and Ivory Coast taking on Korea DPR.

Both games kick-off at 3pm.

- Korea DPR v Ivory Coast LIVE

- Portugal v Brazil LIVE

As it stands (points, goal difference)

Brazil - 6 pts, +3

Portugal - 4 pts, +7

Ivory Coast - 1 pt, -2

Korea DPR - 0 pts, -8

What they need:


The South Americans have already qualified for the last 16 but need at least a point against Portugal to guarantee top spot. If they lose this afternoon then they will finish second in the group.


Virtually guaranteed a place in the last 16 due to their vastly superior goal difference over Ivory Coast. A point this afternoon would definitely secure second place while three points would see them win the group.


Must win convincingly against Korea DPR and hope Brazil beat Portugal by enough to help them overcome their nine goal goal difference deficit. For example, Ivory Coast beat Korea DPR 5-0 and Portugal lose to Brazil 5-0.


Have already been eliminated after two defeats from their opening two games.
