What does Brazil World Cup 2014 mean for Costa Ricans?

This is a big World Cup for Costa Ricans considering that Costa Rica wasn’t on a second round since Italy 1990 when Costa Rica got their first ticket to the finals of a World Cup, where they made a huge showing after beating Scotland and Sweden in the first round, and now after winning the game against Grecia we are writing a new history on the World Cup quarter-finals.

Costa Rica’s participation in this World Cup so far has left a win against Uruguay 2-1 a win against Italy 1-0, a draw against England 0 for 0 and a victorious penalty shootout win over Greece.

And how not to be proud if when the opponents of Costa Rica for the first round were announced, the whole world express that we were in the dead group because Costa Rica would have to play against three former world champions and everybody thought we would be the easiest opponent in the group, however, we were the first country classified in our group and we haven’t lost a game.
