both teams tried well and some good trickery on display(however all the step overs in the world don't actually count unless you go past defenders and score)The Kiwis set pieces look like a way to get some goals and our genneral defending was good ,just don't run into each other(CR'S GOAL). PS 21 shots was the statistic for CR "BUT" 5 only on goal NZ ONLY 2 as well.

"I think that every first game in a World Cup is a good game. Without thinking of winning or losing all the players are very anxious. I think we did a good job. We had a good game, we could have won the game but we are satisfied with the tie." Juan Diego Samuel, Costa Rica coach.
