In the biggest surprise of the round, last year's shock finalists Ecuador came from behind to defeat Croatia with all the goals coming in a 5 minute period either side of half time, Fernando Gaibor hitting two. A minor surprise also as Switzerland eliminated three time winners Italy. Tie of the round came in Stuttgart where Germany fought back strongly after Brazil took the lead. Spain continue to make the best of a horrible draw. For the third time in succession they were drawn away to top 10 opposition, this time England.
