    The headlines tomorrow read: “U-Rica” – Strategy backfires against Suarez-less South American giants as small island nation shocks 3-1.

      Costa Rica is not an island nation, fyi

    Close but offsides goal, lets see if it gets any attention since it was an experienced Euro ref.

    What a great couple of days of football… and it’s only day three!

      Looks like 3-1 and 3-0 are the most prevalent scorelines in the World Cup so far. So here comes a nil-nil draw from Italy-England to put a damper on things.

        Maybe not. I’m thinking teams are seeing the goals being scored and feel they better score as it could come down to goal difference.

        I say England-Italy 2:2 that my guess.

      Seems like right now, anything can happen.

      What’s the next big surprise?

    Costa Rica making a statement now and showing that CONCACAF is more than just two teams. Unlucky not to be up by 2. Here comes Súarez?

    • R.O

      I feel it’s more that Teams from America’s Continent want to go all out to give a good showing.

      While Africa teams wanted to do the same in 2010, they didn’t have the higher internal drive like the teams from South, Central and North America do.

      • Americano & Proud

        June 14, 2014 at 4:35 pm

        Perhaps that’s a factor but both of these teams are in the Americas. I think its more likely that Uruguay overlooked CR to an extent and misses a healthy Súarez more than anything.

    Umm, Uruguay, if you’re losing to Costa Rica you’re going to have trouble getting even 1 point out of this group…

    Good call by the ref for the penalty. Everyone complains about the holding and this ref had the courage to finally do something about it.

    Hey Alex,

    Thanks for including who the Ref for the game is! 🙂
