Italy took control of Group D with a solid 2-1 victory over rival England Saturday. Mario Balotelli scored the game-winner with a superb header and solid defense made up the difference. 

England looked to equalize late, but could not get anything going in the late stages. 

Italy play again on Friday vs. Costa Rica, while England faces Uruguay on Thursday in Group D action.
