WC2014 Day 3 Costa Rica 3 Uruguay 1

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The mobiles will be ringing
and the emails will be flying,
the telegraphic wires will be humming.
Costa Ricans will be singing,
Uruguayans will be crying.
Did anybody out there see that coming?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The seňoritas up in Limón
will be singing very prettily.
In San José the guitars will be strumming.
Englishmen will dream on
as will football fans in Italy –
I’m sure, like us, they didn’t see that coming.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Joel Campbell scored a screamer,
and Duarte was courageous.
Urena scored to set the drummers drumming.
And each small nation dreamer
knows they can become upstagers,
even if nobody sees it coming.



Costa Rica’s finest moment. Beautiful.
