Costa Rica clash with Greece in the fourth Round of 16 match in the FIFA World Cup 2014 on June 29. The match will be played at Recife. Costa Rica surprised everyone by topping Group D with seven points to enter the Round of 16 stages of the FIFA World Cup 2014. Greece finished second in Group C with only four points to progress into the knock-out stages.

 

In what was termed as the ‘Group of Death’, Costa Rica beat favourites Uruguay 3-1 and Italy 1-0. They then drew 0-0 in an inconsequential match with England. Before the FIFA World Cup 2014 began, Costa Rica were termed as the whipping boys and were expected to finish last in Group D. But they managed to stun all the so called ‘bigger’ teams.

In their final match against Ivory Coast, Greece won 2-1 to progress from the group. The winner of this match will play Netherlands, who beat Mexico 2-1, in the quarter-finals at Salvador.
