World Cup: Costa Rica take shock 1-0 first-half lead vs. Italy in Group D matchup
Mighty England are shaking in their boots.
With one minute left in the first half, tiny Costa Rica took a shock lead against Italy in a critical Group D matchup in Recife. Captain Bryan Ruiz headed home a Junior Diaz cross against the crossbar and goal-line technology confirmed the ball crossed the line in its entirey.
The Ticos didn't look out of place against the four-time World Cup champions and, just a few minutes before, they arguably should have earned a penalty kick when forward Joel Campbell was brought down in the box by Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini. But referee Enrique Osses didn't call it.
With a win, Costa Rica go through to the second round against all odds and England is mathematically eliminated.
