The victory of Costa Rica wasn't expected at all. We just made a bade match feeling nervous and i really dont know why its like the same thing happened when our natinal team won italy match and lost with awkward performance against the US. Costa Rica played well they played to win and they made it...Good match everyone and hard luck for us. UAE.. you got our support :)
