2014 World Cup was the best for Costa Rica as they qualified for the Quarterfinal for the first time. This time, they have another chance to finish better but Football has been changed so much in the last 4 years. Let’s see how they finish it.
This is the third hed to head of Brazil vs Costa Rica. Los Tico has an advantage, all too often they up their game against the big sides. After losing their opening game of 2018 World Cup, Costa Rica have to collect some points in order to remain in this competition.
Brazil equally looking for the first win following the previous draw against Switzerland. Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho did provide the early lead to Brazil, but Steven Zuber’s equalizer cancelled that goal and earned an important point for his side.
Both teams met in an international friendly match three years ago. Hulk’s tenth-minute strike was enough for Brazil to confirm the victory without Neymar. Former coach Dunga was in charge during that game.
