COSTA RICA NEWS – Bound Brook, New Jersey, with one the largest population of Costa Ricans in the United States overflowed with celebrations Sunday night after Costa Rica took Greece to advance to the quarter-finals.

The Tico (Costa Rican) style of celebration, taking to the streets, making them impassable at times, waving flags and honking horns, prompted local police to respond.
