Watch Costa Rica’s Plaza de la Democracia erupt after Ticos score against Greece
Watch La Sele fans in the Plaza de la Democracia in downtown San José go wild as Bryan Ruiz strikes first in the match with Greece at the 52nd minute.
Ruiz almost proved to be enough for Costa Rica, but Greece managed to equalize with only minutes remaining in the match. But once Keylor Navas stopped Theofanis Gekas’ penalty kick and Michael Umaña blasted in the game-winner, the real celebration began throughout the country.
