Costa Rica defeats Italy by a score of 1-0 for their second win in two games at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In what was widely expected to be a win for Italy, Costa Rica appeared to play harder and more efficiently throughout. Mario Balotelli was mostly ineffective for the Italians in defeat.

The result gives Costa Rica a spot in the Round of 16 and officially eliminates England from advancing to the knockout stages. Italy can advance with a win or draw in their next match against Uruguay.
