My Admiration to the Australians for their outstanding effort, the game could have be won by either team as both played well and showed a very similar level, lucky for us the balance went in our favor. We still need a lot of work in our defense if we want to get far up the tournament, but I see glances of fast and well crafted football plays that fill me with hope. Go Ticos!! Let's make history!

Unluckey Aussies. Still a good effort from a great squad of young talent. Win the next one

It was a very nice game, very interesting. We had a lot of opportunities to score, but they took their chances.
