World Cup: Costa Rica 0-0 England – Three Lions’ Brazilian Flop Ends In Limp Stalemate (Photos & Highlights)

Costa Rica 0-0 England – World Cup Group D – 24th June 2014


Frankie Lamps bids farewell to international football

Roy Hodgson made a whole load of changes for this dead-rubber of a game (for England) but the likes of Jack Wilshere and Adam Lallana still couldn’t secure a consolation win against Group D’s surprise package Costa Rica.

Daniel Sturridge came closest to breaking the deadlock for England while Celso Borges say his free-kick tipped onto the frame of the goal by Ben Foster.

With Los Ticos focused on the Last 16, there was little in the way of excitement here, although Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard did rekindle their much analysed midfield partnership in the second-half.

England go home after a disappointing campaign while Costa Rica will face most likely face Ivory Coast in the last 16.

    Costa Rica didn’t give a shit. England played to their potential.

    Hence 0-0.

    2016 could be interesting for England, but then again many European teams are shaping up quite nicely who you would say have “underachieved”.

    Let’s face it, England are no better than Denmark or Ivory Coast.
