Today: Australia reach the knockout stage for just the second time in their history thanks to a 1-0 win over hapless Denmark that sets up a last-16 tie with Lionel Messi and Argentina. France cling on to top spot in Group D, but their second-string side are beaten 1-0 by a spirited Tunisia.
In Group C Argentina win comfortably against a Poland side who can count themselves incredibly lucky to be in the next round by virtue of goal difference. Mexico come up short despite 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia.
Plus, discussion of penalty shootouts in group games at the next World Cup, a bit of Pearl Jam, Mark’s KFC order – and footballers in period dramas.
