Watch Costa Rica vs. Greece football live stream to see if the Central Americans can continue their unexpected run in the World Cup knockout round. The most surprising team of the tournament ended in first place in a group that included former champions Italy, England — who are already at home — and Uruguay, who fell against Colombia on Saturday.
This match up is the first between both countries and they both look to make history moving on, as neither nation has ever come this far in a World Cup. However, with the impressive style of play they have displayed so far, knocking their very powerful rivals in the groups stage, Costa Rica is the one where all eyes will rest on.
Along with Colombia, Costa Rica has been a pleasant and unexpected qualifier. With a confidence that many, more established teams have not had, they cruised, seemingly effortlessly, through the groups stage, shocking Uruguay in their debut and making everyone take note.
If you watch Costa Rica vs. Greece football live stream you will see the Europeans taking their rivals very seriously. One thing is for certain, nobody will underestimate one of the former underdogs of the tournament, Costa Rica. They have earned their place in the knockout round of the World Cup very convincingly.
From the coach, Jorge Luis Pinto, to the young players, Costa Rica has been one of the most consistent teams in the 2014 World Cup and proud representative of the ever improving CONCACAF. Their best result in a World Cup came in 2002, where they placed 19th. Greece’s best showing was in 1994, where they finished in 24th place.
Pinto expects a “complex, counter-attack” from Greece, and even though Los Ticos have been solid thus far, he knows they will be facing a tough team that also wants to prove its critics wrong. Pinto believes that even though Greece qualified by the skin of their teeth in the groups stage, it’s all back to square one.
When you watch Costa Rica vs. Greece football live, you will see a Greek team ready to prove that they belong here. When asked if he expects his Costa Rica to move on to the semis, a level-headed Pinto said:
“We have to think realistically, but we have to think big. But first things first. Let’s concentrate on Greece first and try to win that.”
