    Costa Rican comeback undoes Uruguay

    Costa Rica stunned Uruguay with two quick-fire goals en route to a 3-1 comeback victory in their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ opener. Edinson Cavani had given the South Americans the lead from the penalty spot, but Joel Campbell and Oscar Duarte struck with minutes of one another before Michael Umana rounded off an unexpected win. With Oscar Tabarez's side not having won their opening game since 1970, and Los Ticos starting out on a five-game World Cup winless streak, there was every chance a run would be broken in Fortaleza. It was Uruguay that posed problems for the Central Americans early on. First, Diego Godin was on hand to sweep home at the back post, following a Cavani flick, only to be marginally ruled offside. Then the Paris Saint-Germain forward had a gilt-edged chance of his own, slicing a volley wildly wide after Umana miscued his clearance. The fans who had hopped on the six-hour flight from Montevideo were not left waiting much longer, as captain Diego Lugano was hauled down by Junior Diaz in the area, leaving Cavani to slot home from 12 yards.

    Costa Rica were far from rolling over though, with a long distance effort from Campbell seeing Fernando Muslera fling himself full-length across his goal as it arrowed narrowly wide. Then it was the turn of Duarte and Giancarlo Gonzalez to worry La Celeste, with the latter's close-range effort deflected past the post after the pair cause havoc following a deep free-kick. Moments before half-time though, only a stunning save from Keylor Navas prevented Duarte from inadvertently making the difference at the other end, with a wicked deflection almost sending Diego Forlan's shot under the bar.

    Costa Rica had not beaten Uruguay in eight attempts, but dead-balls began to look like a fruitful avenue for Jose Luis Pinto's side, as Duarte again rose at the back post to meet Christian Bolanos' free-kick, but Muslera was there to deny him. Minutes later they were level, with Campbell tying the match up, firing home with his left foot past a motionless Muselra from inside the area after Cristian Gamboa's deep cross.
    Then, in a near-carbon copy of Bolanos and Duarte's previous combination, the defender got his rewards, with his diving header into the far corner turned the game on its head three minutes later. While Uruguay probed for an equaliser, they rarely troubled the Costa Ricans, and with five minutes remaining a surgical through-ball from Campbell sent Urena through - who slotted coolly past the advancing Muslera. To compound Tabarez's misery, a frustrated Maxi Pereira lashed out on Campbell in the dying seconds to receive his marching orders.

    Uruguay-Costa Rica: Quotes

    Jorge Luis Pinto, Costa Rica coach
    We are happy and I want to congratulate the team for the attitude they showed. The players kept their heads after Uruguay scored. They were composed, stuck to their game and played with a lot of heart. It’s an important win for us and it gives us hope, though we haven’t won anything yet.


    Oscar Washington Tabarez, Uruguay coach
    I don’t know what Costa Rica’s limit is, but today they played well. They were tactically better than us, which reflects well on their coach and players. When they took the lead, they gave us space and let us play where we couldn’t do them any harm. Now we’re going to try and get back on track against England.


    Joel Campbell, Budweiser Man of the Match
    It wasn’t a surprise for us. We came here to win. We wanted the points and we went for them. We’ve still got two big games to come against two big sides and we hope to put in big performances against them. I’m going to have a son soon, which is why I celebrated my goal the way I did. Celebrating his arrival with a World Cup goal is the best thing that can happen to me.
