Costa Rica vs. Germany
The game was a great! Costa Rica played very well fending off 30 shots on the goal. The final score was 4-2 Germany where pre-game estimates had Costa Rica losing by as much as 5-0.
Costa Rica scored 2 goals, one in the first half and one in the second, both by Pablo Wanchope.
Costa Rica goalie Jose’ Francisco Porras had a busy day blocking several shots that appeared to be certain goals.
Costa Rica plays Ecuador on Thursday the 15th and Poland on June 20.
I’m sure everything will come to a halt as far as business goes again on these days. It was interesting to walk by the bank and see everyone inside in their Costa Rica team shirts watching the game with the doors locked and all business stopped. As I suggested, you could hear hollering throughout Costa Rica during the game. It was a very festive day.
