Spain came into the tournament as defending champions and one of the favorites. Their tiki-taka style failed to deliver.
Four-time champions Italy were one of the sides to beat when they defeated England in their opening game, but subsequently went on to lose to Costa Rica and Uruguay. As a result, ciao time came early.
Portugal have also looked out of sorts and their talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo, is coming off an injury. He has had an indifferent tournament so far. The odds are stacked against Portugal even though they have a mathematical chance of qualifying.
