Costa Rica will always be remembered as the country who failed to qualify for two consecutive World Cups and on the third they stunned everyone as they beat Uruguay and Italy in the group stage and drew against England to go the Round of 16. They even paved their way to the quarter final by defeating Greece in the Round of 16 matches but they couldn’t just hold it off. Now they want to repeat the same in this world cup as they did in the last one but this time as well they are clubbed with Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia and they would want to register a win in this game and start off their World Cup dream on a happy note.
The black horse for this fixture is the Serbians because nobody is paying much attention to them but they do have a team that can put up a fight with any other big teams but whether or not they can hold it off against the Costa Ricans will remain a match to see.
