Watch Costa Rica’s three (yes, three!) goals in the victory over Uruguay
Goal no. 1: Joel Campbell equalizes at the 54th minute. Then he has a baby.
Goal no. 2: Nicaragua-born Oscar Duarte used his head for the golazo to put the Ticos ahead 2-1 at the 57th minute. The first Nicaraguan to ever score in the World Cup was overcome by emotion after the goal.
Goal no. 3: Marco Ureña with the dagger at the 84th minute. Costa Rica just pulled off one of the most shocking upsets in recent World Cup history.
The Ticos had low odds to even score a goal during the tournament. Now they’re atop Group D. Italy and England play at 4 p.m. Costa Rica meets Italy on Friday in Recife at 10 a.m.
