The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – In Dutch training for the next game, the only issue that is discussed is Costa Rica and how they will play during the quarter final game against the Ticos.
Tulip coach Louis Van Gaal said the tricolor is a team to respect for being among the top eight teams in the world.
“Costa Rica is a very tough opponent, otherwise it would have ended in the quarter finals,” said Van Gaal.
He also tried to down play the game against the Ticos: “The media never thought they would survive the first round and that’s why we never know who will end up becoming favorites.”
During the week the quarterback had words of praise for their manager and highlighted the spirit that is one of the qualities that led them to the final stages.
“This is a modest group, we have an exceptional spirit that has led us to victory,” said Van Gaal.
Holland and Costa Rica will meet for the first time competing with everything they’ve got to make it to the semifinals of the World Cup Brazil 2014.
