Costa Rica Says Goodbye to the 2018 World Cup!

The Tico played well but weren't able to get the badly needed win

The game went well for Costa Rica, playing strong, good defense and several good scoring opportunities. But in the end, when the clock had ticked 90 minutes, Philippe Coutinho was able to cross the Tico defense and from 6 meters out, put one past Keylor Navas.

Brazil’s Philippe Coutinho puts one past Keylor Navas at the 90′ mark.

This gave the Ticos only a few minutes to tie the game and possibly get the needed win.

But it was not to be.

The Brazilians made good use of the time to pass the ball around, keeping the ball at midfield for most of the few minutes left on the clock, scored the second goal and did not give the Ticos a chance for an attack or two.
