It was difficult to believe that Costa Rica with a non-relevant football record, had managed to continue until the quarter-finals at the 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP.

They were the first in the so-called “Group of Death”, qualifying to the knockout stage, facing threeworld cup winners: Uruguay, Italy and England before battling past Greece on penalties after playing with only 10 men during one hour.

After its remarkable run to the quarter-finals, Costa Rica faced The  Netherlands holding the them scoreless for 120 minutes, before finally falling short in the penalty shootout.

The run of the Ticos in this World Cup will be long remembered and they leave with their heads held very high.
