One more set of group games

Spain played a lackluster 2nd half, knowing they don't really need it, to beat the Saudis 1-0.  The Ukraine, only needing a tie, beat Tunisia 1-0 on a Shevchenko penalty kick.  They are in as well.

Now there's only two games left today to decide the final placements in the round of 16.  France needs a win and some help from the Switzerland-S.Korea game.  Pitiful that they put themselves in this position, but a win would make up for the dismal 2002 performance, if but just a little.
