How can a nation and its people not be proud of their national team? After they did what was said would be impossible, beating a world champion, Uruguay.

In every corner of Costa Rica, heads were held high, flags waving, horns beeping. It was the ultimate party. And is there more to come?

You bet.

With the England loss, the Ticos have more than a fair chance of moving to the next round of play. Do the math, with both England and Uruguay with a loss, all the Ticos have to do is beat either Italy or England and they advance.

It can be done. It will be done.

Go Costa Rica!

Here some of the images of the celebrations yesterday.
