Salomon Kalou admits he will be cheering his Chelsea team-mates on when England take on Germany.
Kalou and Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba are already out of the World cup with Ivory Coast, while fellow Blues forward Nicolas Anelka was sent home by France and Florent Malouda and Branislav Ivanovic have also exited.
Portugal's Deco and Paulo Ferreira remain in the tournament, as do John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Joe Cole, and Kalou hopes the England quartet will do the business to help lift the spirits when the players return to pre-season training at Stamford Bridge.
He said: "I don't think it has been too good a World Cup for Chelsea's players.
"Hopefully the English boys will do better so when we do get back we will have some positive things to talk about from the World Cup.
"I hope England beat Germany. I will watch the game and cheer for JT, Lampsy and Joe Cole.
"I hope they have a great game to put England into the next round."
Ivory Coast exited the tournament after an opening goalless stalemate with Portugal, a 3-1 defeat to Brazil and then a closing 3-0 win over North Korea, in which Kalou scored.
Reflecting on the campaign, Kalou added: "It is difficult to say I am disappointed because we did a good job against Portugal, we had some bad luck against Brazil and the third game we won.
"We will keep the positives and work very hard to get to that level.
"It has been a very good experience for us playing against Portugal and Brazil.
"Hopefully in the next World Cup we will get an easier group and we can make it to the next round."
Kalou believed the Ivorians had shown too much respect in the game against Brazil.
He said: "If there are any regrets it was Brazil. I don't believe we played at our level.
"Maybe we were a little intimidated to play against Brazil - you have to play at your best.
"Portugal - perhaps we should have tried to win the game. We started well and pushed it and created chances but didn't put the ball in the net.
"When you have chances like that you have to take them."
