Ivory Coast started Friday needing a big win and a Portugal loss to Brazil to have any chance of moving on. But Brazil and Portugal tied 0-0, putting the Portuguese into the next round.

Ghana is the only one of six African teams to advance to the round of 16.

North Korea lost all three matches, giving up 12 goals and scoring just one.
