Costa Rica vs England Preview

Costa Rica has been surprised not only Uruguay and Italy, but also the entire football world. Another former world champion is the next opponent, but in more favorable circumstances this time. Sports motives are at the forefront, because Costa Rica has already secured its participation in the next round, while the Englishmen are going home after this match, but they want to preserve their honor before that. It seems that we will watch a nice football show.

Costa Rica has achieved more than what has been expected in a group with three former world champions, but that does not mean that this team is satisfied with that. On the contrary, in the next round they will play against the second placed team from the Group C, most likely against the Ivory Coast, which is not an insurmountable obstacle, so we could see Costa Rica in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. There is no doubt that the only thought of it is a real sensation, but Costa Rica has proven to have a very talented team. Therefore, they do not have to strive for another unexpected success, which a victory against England would been, because it is necessary to rest the team for the match of the last 16. With that in mind, I expect that coach Pinto will make some changes in the starting line-up for the game.

Probable line-up of Costa Rica (4-2-3-1): Pemberton – Myrie, Acosta, Miller, Francis – Cubero, Granados – Urena, Barrantes, Calvo – Brenes

Although they have been defeated in two games against big rivals, England did not play badly. However, some circumstances they were not going to their favor so the defeats have occurred and it would be wrong to see that like the end of the world. Of course, this failure is difficult for experienced players such as Gerrard, who may not have another opportunity to participate in such a championship, but Hodgson does the right thing for English football. He received support from FA​​, so we should expect that he will continue with rejuvenating the team already in this game, thus he will give a chance to some new players. This might have a positive impact and contribute to the victory for the honor of England.

Probable line-up of England (4-2-3-1): Forster – Johnson, Smalling, Cahill, Shaw –Wilshere, Lampard – Milner, Barkley, Lallana – Lambert

Costa Rica vs England Game Prediction
Both teams are without a competitive imperative in this match, so I believe the goals will be on both sides. Over 2.5 Goals.
