Round of 16 day 2 – Costa Continue!

The surprise package of this year’s World Cup are still going strong after beating Greece to get to the quarter finals where they will play against Holland.

The game was pretty dull with Costa Rica (who had 10 men for the last period of the game) leading until 90 minutes when Greece got an equaliser which meant it went to extra time. Both teams really struggled in extra time though with fatigue which meant for the second time in this tournament – penalties.

Unlike Brazil v Chile these penalties were very good with 9 out of 10 being scored. Good luck to Costa Rica in the next round against the Diving Dutchmen!
