And #CRC scores another goal, 3-1. Congrats to Marco Urena. #WorldCup— Jeffrey Webb (@Jeffrey Webb ) 14/06/2014 20:49
Navas relieves the pressure with a convincing punch landing far up the touchline for a throw-in.
What a pass from Campbell to find Urena in the area. The young Arsenal man is having a terriffic match.
GOAL: Costa Rica's No21 adds a third for the Central Americans after picking up on a great through ball from Campbell. The Kuban Krasnodar striker calmly passes past Muslera and that will surely give Los Ticos three points.
STAT ATTACK: Uruguay have not scored twice in any of their last five opening World Cup matches since beating Israel 2-0 in 1970, which is also the last time they won their opening game.
Uruguay's No22 comes in with his studs up on a high challenge and finds his way into Mark Borsch's book.
It's all hands on deck in the Costa Rican defense at the moment with just about ten minutes to go.Los Ticos remaining calm as Uruguay continue to apply pressure.
Tabarez makes his third and final change of the match as the No8 takes the field. This means Liverpool star striker Luis Suarez will not feature tonight.

"Campbell has a lot of promise for Costa Rica. His qualities in attack are astounding. We are helping him along. He’s young and he has a lot of things to learn. Many lessons are still in front of him. But he’s very important for the team. His individual qualities are outstanding and we hope he can show them off."
Costa Rica are having a hard time clearing the ball out of their defensive third as Uruguay continue to mount pressure as they search for an equaliser.
Uruguay are on the front foot now, Cavani forcing Navas to make a good save, but the Levante man concedes a second corner in quick succession.
58,679 fans have poured into the Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza to enjoy this encounter.
Since taking the lead, Costa Rica have enjoyed the lion's share of possession and have been close to scoring a third. Uruguay are having a hard time coping with the constant pressure from the Central Americans.
JUST WIDE: Joel Campbell takes a crack from distance and has eyed the top-left corner and it only misses by a matter of inches.
DID YOU KNOW? Costa Rica scoring in the 54th and 57th minute are their fastest ever consecutive goals at a World Cup. On 4 June 2002 they scored in the 61st and 65th minute versus China.
Oscar Tabarez elects to go for two substitutions simultaneously in an effort to find a way back into this match.
STAT ATTACK: At 21 years, 11 months and 19 days old, Joel Campbell is the youngest player to score at Brazil 2014 so far.
GOAL: Costa Rica score twice in a matter of minutes to take the lead! Los Ticos' No6 always had a step on Stuani and scored with a wonderful diving header at the back post, firing across the face of goal past Muslera's outstretched arms.
The Estadio Castelao is buzzing after Campbell's equaliser. The atmosphere is electric.
GOAL: Costa Rica's No9 shows some great composure to collect the ball and fire into the far corner, leaving Muslera no chance. Great finish from the Arsenal striker and he follows it up with an even better celebration!
GOOD SAVE: Muslera shows quick relfexes to deny Costa Rica's No6 and Duarte cannot capitalise on the rebound.
Costa Rica's injured left back is fully behind his team.
"Go Costa Rica...here comes a goal!!!"
Vamos Costa Rica....ya viene el gol !!! #CRC— Bryan Oviedo (@Bryan Oviedo) 14/06/2014 20:07

HALF-TIME: Costa Rica and Uruguay head into the dressing room for the break with the South Americans holding the slightest of leads. Los Ticos had several chances to equalise but have not yet found the mark.

GREAT SAVE: Navas keeps the score 1-0 after tipping Forlan's badly deflected strike over the bar that looked to have caught the Levante keeper out of position.
NEAR MISS: Costa Rica's No3 cannot connect on his diving header at the far post. Had he made contact it looked certain to have been the equaliser
Uruguay's No10 tries to curl his shot into the top corner but can't get enough bend on the ball and is well off the mark.
Los Ticos have been putting in some hard challenges on their South American opponents, sticking to their hard-nosed style of play they're well known for throughout CONCACAF.
Costa Rica keep the pressure up with two corners in quick succession after Bolanos sees a good chance miss wide after a deflected.
Costa Rica have responded well since going down a goal afer Cavani's penalty. Joel Campbell is leading the charge but the Central American side are getting into the attack collectively.
JUST WIDE: Los Ticos' No9 unleashes a long-range strike that looked destined to find the back of the net but it sails inches wide. Muslera looked beaten.
Uruguay celebrate emphatically after Cavani's penalty, much to the delight of the South American supporters in the Estadio Castelao
Don't forget, you can now take part in the Kick-Off Ball Contest!Take the quiz now, win the kick-off ball!
GOAL: No21 calmly scores despite Navas guessing correctly and going to his left.
PENALTY! Junior Diaz pulls down Lugano inside the box coming from a free-kick
DID YOU KNOW?
Oscar Tabarez is the longest-serving coach at Brazil 2014. He took Uruguay's reins in 2006.
STAT ATTACK: Diego Forlan has scored in Uruguay's last three World Cup matches and can join Ghiggia as the only Uruguay player to score in four consecutive World Cup matches if he finds the back of the net today.
MISS: Uruguay's No21 is presented with a clear chance, which looks to have caught him by surprise, and off balance, the Paris Saint-Germain striker's shot is well off the mark.
NO GOAL: Diego Godin is ruled offside and - unlike his strike in the UEFA Champions League final - his goal won't count.
The Estadio Castelao has quieted down a little since kick-off as a result of few chances for either side. So far it's been an evenly matched affair, despite Uruguay edging Los Ticos in possession.

Costa Rica's No10 is the first to the header but he can't keep it down.
Costa Rica's first corner kick comes is right in front of a passionate group ofTicossupporters, cheering their side on.
Christian Bolanos holds onto the ball well in Uruguay's penalty, looking for space to get a shot off but his final touch is a bit too strong and La Celeste clear for a throw-in.
A slight miscue in the Costa Rican backline nearly leads to a breakthrough for Uruguay, but goalkeeper Keylor Navas was quick to smother the ball.
The match so far has been played mostly in the middle third of the pitch, neither side able to string together long periods of possession.
Uruguay's No11 goes into a hard challenge with the Costa Rican defender.
The soaring temperature in Fortaleza may very well dictate the pace of this match, particularly in the later stages. To start, Costa Rica seem content to let Uruguay keep the ball in their half, only applying pressure once the South Americans cross midfield.
Uruguay have kicked off wearing their traditional sky blue kits to get us under way
The passion behind every anthem sung so far has been incredible to see. The emotion is palpable.
And now for the Costa Ricans, their anthem "Himno Nacional de Costa Rica" is playing with the team grabbing each other by the shoulders and singing.
Uruguay's national anthem, "Orientales, la Patria o la Tumba" is being sung loudly and proudly by the team, and those wearing bright blue around the stadium.
And here come Uruguay and Costa Rica onto the pitch with a warm, embracing welcome from the crowd.
Though the young one doesn't seem to be having much fun!
