England are out of the World Cup. You can look for positives—ahem, Raheem Sterling—but the displays in Brazil just weren't good enough from Roy Hodgson's men.

The Three Lions can save a smidgen of pride in their final group match against Costa Rica. Unbelievably, Jorge Luis Pinto's side are through with six points already, but they'll want to compound England to their worst World Cup showing ever.

Surely the Costa Ricans aren't going to spring another surprise? Uruguay and Italy underestimated them, something England can't afford to do. We fired up our trusty copy of FIFA 14 on Xbox One to simulate the match.

Oh my. Can you imagine a long ball undoing England yet again? FIFA 14 certainly could.

It almost seems so real that Daniel Sturridge's effort would bounce on the line before Costa Rica steal the show with a simple goal. It is so England. Things aren't destined to get any better if you believe the virtual world, but will this result echo the real match?
