Reaching the World Cup quarter-finals is a big deal, no matter where you're from.
But when your country has never done it before—as was the case with Costa Rica—it means even more.
For the Central American nation, the party began after the team ousted Greece on penalties.
A huge crowd had gathered in the capital, San Jose, to watch the game. As Joel Campbell tweeted, it was quite a sight from above:
Even if Costa Rica's run were to end at the quarter-final stage to the Netherlands, the team have already advanced out of a group containing England, Italy and Uruguay as winners, and they've held their nerve against Greece to advance.
There'll be some sore heads in San Jose as the dust settles on last night's party.
