BRAZIL 2014: COSTA RICA CAGES GREECE VIA PENALTIES

0

Costa Rica will play the Netherlands in the quarter-finals of the World Cup after defeating Greece on penalties.

The game had finished 1-1 after normal time following Sokratis Papastathopoulos’s injury-time equaliser for Greece.

Bryan Ruiz had side-footed Costa Rica into the lead before team-mate Oscar Duarte saw red for a second caution, reports the BBC.

Extra time failed to separate the sides but Theofanis Gekas missed, allowing Michael Umana to win it for Costa Rica.
