Costa Rica staged the first big upset of 2014 world cup when they hammered Uruguay by 3-1, Edinson Cavani put uruguay 1-0 up with his penalty goal in first half but goals from Cambell, Duarte and Urena turned the tables in second half.

Arsenal forward Joel Campbell scored to get Costa Rica back into the game.

Now Costa Rica sit top of the Group D and they have put themselves into a great position of making it through to the knockout stages, although two very tough games coming up first against Italy and Than against England later. For now they can celebrate their biggest world cup win to date.

Luis Suarez is so eager to start against Costa Rica that he has been going through an accelerated fitness programme which consist of 3 sessions a day. But I am quite confident that Suarez won’t start against Costa Rica as they would not want to risk his fitness, but as the things stand he is preparing himself for the england come on 19th June.

Uruguay have a couple of injury worries with Suarez battling for fitness while national team coach has a selection headech ahead of the first game. Probably Suarez won’t start the match I expect Forlan or Cavani to lead the line. Costa rica on the other hand will start with Cambpell and Bryan Ruiz in the forward line. Here are our expected lineups for this game.

Looks like a easy win for Uruguay and they must win this game to get through the group easily as their next two matches are against Italy and England. Costa Rica is a good side but they dont have a chance in this group where they will be playing against Uruguay, England and Italy. I am going with a comfortable 3-1 win for Forlan and Co.
