World Cup 2014: Costa Rica vs Greece (Round of 16s)

Costa Rica have been the surprise package of the World Cup. They overcame Uruguay, Italy and England and they have been a joy to watch. Their success is a remarkable story which proves team spirit can take you a long way. But after playing the underdog card to perfection, they will start as favourites and how they take the pressure will be there to be seen.

Greece were very very lucky to be here as they relied on a last minute dodgy penalty vs Ivory Coast. With Joel Campbell in such lively form and Costa Rica to be the virtual home side, Greece need another huge slice of luck or a 2004 Euro Cup type heroic performance.

Prediction: Costa Rica to win 2-0
