There have been 108 goals scored in this World Cup. Greece has scored a total of 0. And yet, if things go its way today, it could make it to the knockout round.
That's one of five things we'll be watching for and talking about Tuesday:
1. ENGLAND V. COSTA RICA
Leaving on a jet plane:
What a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad World Cup it's been for England. Sure, Wayne Rooney scored that goal that had eluded him for three World Cups. But to what end? The Three Lions still had their feast spoiled by Uruguay last week. Today, England is hoping for at least a draw -- so it doesn't leave with a goose egg for the first time. (Costa Rica is already through.)
UPDATE: Well, England got its draw. But not a win or even a goal. The result meant Costa Rica -- predicted by many to finish last in Group D -- instead came in first.
2. ITALY V. URUGUAY
Right down the line:
This is the match to watch today. Both Uruguay and Italy have 3 points in Group D. Winning is crucial for moving on up.
Here's hoping the Italian coach gave the team a refresher course on staying onside. In its game with Costa Rica, the Italian boys were caught offside 11 times! Fix that, and make opportunities for magic man Mario Balotelli, and Italy may make it through.
But watch out! Something's gotten into Uruguay. After a stunning loss to Costa Rica, they were sizzling hot against England -- especially with the return of injury-plagued Luis Suarez.
UPDATE: Italy is out of the World Cup, and it's got to hurt in more ways than one. First, there's their 1-0 loss to Uruguay. But what everyone is talking about is star Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez allegedly biting the shoulder of Italian defender Girogio Chiellini a few minutes before the game's lone goal.
3. GREECE V. IVORY COAST
All it takes is one:
We get it, Greece. You're really great at defense. You proved that when you played with 10 players for most of the match with Japan, and still held them to a goalless draw. But it's time to aim for the net now.
Like Greece, the Ivory Coast hasn't ever made it to the Round of 16. A win will change that. Brothers Yaya and Kolo Toure have decided to stay with the squad as they mourn the death of another sibling, Ibrahim, who passed away of cancer last week.
UPDATE: Greece did it. They scored two goals, the last on a penalty kick in extra time to earn a 2-1 win and a berth in the knockout stages. The result also assured an end to the World Cup hopes of Didier Drogba, Yaya Toure and their Ivory Coast cohorts.
4. JAPAN V. COLOMBIA
Tangled up in blue:
We want to love Japan. They have the nicest fans. But the Blue Samurais have been meh. And we're not sure they have a fighting chance today. They not only have to win against Colombia, they'll also have to hope that the Ivory Coast draws or loses the other game.
Colombia's sitting pretty at the top of the group. They're already through. But we want to see their 22-year-old phenom, James Rodriguez, score again. Because that dude can give Shakira a run for her money(maker).
UPDATE: Colombia has been unstoppable up until Tuesday. Against Greece, they gave their fans more reason to dance -- four goals worth, in fact, en route to a 4-1 win and a spot atop Group C.
5. MONDAY'S RECAPS
Mexico - Croatia: 3-1
The scouting report goes something like this: Rafa Marquez is the target player for Mexico on corner kicks. Mark him with two players if you have to. He'll make you pay if he gets his head to the ball.
