The ‘Ticos’ have six points, four goals scored and just one against while beating Uruguay and Italy in the first two fixture against all odds; in fact, their only goal against was a penalty kick scored by Edinson Cavani.  They have been close to perfection.

In their last game against Italy, they dominated the match from start to bottom, and controlled most of the Italian stars; then Bryan Ruiz took advantage of a long ball to score the only goal and seal their first even victory in a FIFA tournament against the Italians.

Costa Rica’s best asset is their discipline on defense and how determinate to show the world they seemed to be at this moment.

On the other hand there’s England, a one-time World Champion, who’s already eliminated from the tournament after losing to Italy and Uruguay, 2-1 both times.

The English have been a tremendous disappointment on every line; their defense looks shady, their midfield uninspired and their attack predictable.  They will try to beat Costa Rica and leave Brazil with a least an honorable victory.

Costa Rica is +380 to get their third win in a row in the tournament, and England is -118, according to the World Cup Odds
