Costa Rica, dude.
I mean, what?! All props to the Ticos, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them come of age and find a new level. And to see them crack the Grecian formula with 10 men was amazing. We all know how troublesome that team can be in a tournament.
And ummm, Oranje best pull their socks up this week. In case you did not notice, they could potentially be forced to go through a "Gold Cup knockouts" to reach the final again.
One can hope, anyway...
