World Cup: Italy falters, France gets a head's up

Italy tied the US 1-1 yesterday, as the US again failed to score a goal. Italy scored an own goal in the first half. Oops. Bruce Arena is coaching in his last World Cup for the US.

France's Thierry Henry missed a header and a kick off a corner, but scored earlier for France as they tied South Korea 1-1 today. Henry's Arsenal teammate Patrick Vieira had a goal overruled in the 32nd minute.

And ssssshh! Brazil went on to the 2nd round after quietly dispatching Australia 2-0.
