Hands up who had the Costa Ricans getting to the quarter finals? Out in the group stage I thought. Klinsmann warned the world that here was a team to be reckoned with. And they dealt with Group D with ease beating Italy and Uruguay and keeping eliminated England at bay. Greece in the round of 16 looked a friendly draw. Could have been a lot tougher, but it was still a hurdle that needed overcoming. Holland was always going to be a toughie, and so it proved. But Costa Rica leave having enjoyed their best ever World Cup. Their contribution to this great tournament will not be forgotten.
