Costa Rica Say Adios

Group A Match

Ecuador vs Costa Rica
Hamburg

Previous Encounters:
Ecuador and Costa Rica have played each other eight times, with five of those games ending in draws.

The Match:
Ecuador took the lead in the 8th minute when Carlos Tenorio headed in Luis Valencia's cross from the right.

After just 28 minutes, Costa Rica tried to get the offensive edge by bringing on Alvaro Saborio on for Danny Fonseca; knowing that if they didn't get a result here, they would be out, along with Poland.

Half-time: (1:0).

In the 54th minute, Ecuador just about sealed the fate of Costa Rica and Poland, when Edison Mendez flicked the ball into Agustin Delgado. With this goal, Ecuador moved to the top of Group A, above Germany.

Costa Rica's Alvaro Saborio hit the bar just before the final whistle, but against an Ecuador side who have yet to concede a goal, it was like a fly landing on a horse's tail.

Ecuador swished their tail one more time, as Ivan Kaviedes slid in to finish the game and Costa Rica's World Cup dreams.

Final Score:
Ecuador 3 - Costa Rica 0
