Keylor Navas made the huge stop. Michael Umaña blasted in the all-important fifth penalty kick. And the incredible result set off a celebration throughout Costa Rica.
The country of 4.8 million had just stunned Greece 5-3 on penalties. La Sele reached the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time in its history. Costa Rica is among the eight best football teams in the world.
The Ticos will meet the Netherlands on Saturday afternoon. But the European powerhouse would be something to worry about later in the week. Now it was time to party.
