This was the final game of the group stage. I was hoping for either a Tunisia win so England could win the group, or a Romania win so the US could get the coveted 31st place. Unfortunately, it ended in a 1-1 draw, giving Romania the group, and ensuring 32nd place status for the US.

The game itself was a rather dull one, save for a few sparks of creativity from the Tunisians.
