Amid English anguish at the national side's rapid elimination from the World Cup, there has also been praise for Costa Rica's remarkable performance in qualifying from the so-called 'Group of Death':
Coup de grace for England, but how can you not be thrilled for Costa Rica? Bloody marvellous performance.
Now Costa Rica can rest players, for their unimportant match against the minnows of England.
Incredible result for Costa Rica , such high work ethic ,organised , disciplined performance ! Thanks for your comments good and bad haha
