Costa Rica, Cinderella queen group of death
Costa Rica has written its name in the history of the World Cup. The ticos, they have only managed to qualify so far for the round of 16 of the World Cup, but the way to qualify has been as great as it is unexpected. Framing in the group of death, with three world champions like Uruguay, Inglaterra and Italy, the Ticos were considered not only the Cinderella of the group but practically of the World Cup. In a tournament that is leaving a multitude of surprises, that of the Costa Rican players has been one of the most pleasant.
When the draw brought the group, everyone put their hands on their heads. Three world champions in the same group, which of the three will stay out said some. The difference in the goals scored against Costa Rica will determine who passes, said others. After two games played, the only classified selection and as the first of the group, it's Costa Rica. England, one of the coconuts of the World Cup, despite having played a good game, they will go home in the first round. Uruguay and Italy, con 6 stars of world champions between the two, They will have to play to decide which of them is still in the World Cup and who will follow him on television.
But the ticos, based on honor and play, They have managed to bring down with solvency and authority nothing more and nothing less than two teams full of talented players and that, that things started badly. Costa Rica started losing by a goal to nil against Uruguay after a penalty goal by Cavani. The script seemed to be fulfilled and it was already taken for granted that Costa Rica's passage through the World Cup would be testimonial. After a spectacular comeback, the Levante goalkeeper team, voted best goalkeeper in the Liga BBVA and revelation in Europe, Keylor Navas, ended up winning the game by a goal to three with a spectacular performance by former Betis Joel Campbell.
What seemed like an anecdote has been confirmed in the match against Italy. With a worked game and at times fast and surprising, the Ticos have knocked down one of the teams that left the best feeling in the first game of the group led by a Pirlo in a third youth. With this result, England goes home eliminated showing that in this World Cup they do not even win with the name, the star of the shield nor the past feats. The Joel Campbells, Keylor Navas, Bolaños, Bryan Ruiz, Ureña and all the components of the squad led by Colombian Jorge Luis Pinto have already made history, but they don't want to stop. Where will they arrive?, as usual, time will tell and of course, we will tell it in Colgados.
