Costa Rica down Russia

The poor defense saw Costa Rica emerge winners on 9th October during the international competitions.

Russia’s hopes of rebuilding in time for the 2018 World Cup suffered a 4-3 blow on Sunday.

Vasily Berezutsk, the center back, was distracted for Costa Rica’s first goal, scored an own goal and gave away the penalty from which Joel Campbell scored Costa Rica’s 92nd-minute winner.

With Russia 3-1 down at half time, a planned ceremony to mark Berezutsky’s 100th Russia game was called off, but after the break striker, Artyom Dzyuba led a revival with two goals before Campbell gave the visitors the win.
