The fourth match of the knock-out stages is going to bring two unexpected names as Costa Rica clash with Greece. This Match number 52 of Brazil World Cup will take place on Monday 30 June. Costa Rica won the hearts of many football lovers with their extremely great performance. They came through Group D ahead of Uruguay in the “group of death.” Jorge Luis Pinto’s team has caused one of the surprises of the World Cup. The Costa Rica defense was impressive so far only goal conceded by Uruguay come from the penalty spot. After dealing with big teams like the “Group of 16” match should be comparatively easy including Uruguay, Italy and England. However, this fully deserving team in the last 16 can never take a team like Greece lightly. But the pressure will clearly be on Greece as it needed to take a more attacking approach. They finished as distant runners up to Colombia in Group C though their start in the tournament was disappointing. In its first match they were beaten 3-0 by the South American’s and their second match was a 0-0 draw with Japan. Their 2-1 win over the Ivoirians confirmed the place in the last 16 for the first time.
