Ticos rout Greece in shoot-out; meet Holland

Recife: Keeper Keylor Navas was man-of-the match, as Costa Rica sank Greece on penalties to debut in World Cup quarters and earned a clash with Holland. Reduced to 10 in the 66th minute after Oscar Duarte was ordered off for a 2nd caution, Ticos seemed set for a win until Sokratis Papastathopoulos made it 1-1 in injury time. Navas blocked a string of shots in the game and had a superb 1-handed save of Fanis Gekas’s strike in the shootout for a 5-3 victory. Captain Bryan Ruiz gave the Central Americans a 1-0 lead at Arena Pernambuco before 41,242 spectators in a 1st-ever encounter between the teams. Greece continues to be the only Euro Cup champ not to make it to the quarters at a WC.
