Costa Rica Biggest Underdog to Win 2014 World Cup

We’ve said it before and we will say it again, Costa Rica has come into the 2014 World Cup as the biggest underdog at better than 100-1 odds and now they have qualified to enter the quarter-finals.  This is indeed one of the biggest stories of this year’s World Cup.

Costa Rica beat Greece in a penalty shootout Sunday to reach the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time.

Costa Rica has more online sportsbooks than any other country in the world yet the draw was a winner for these bookies, all of whom were hoping in their hearts for a Tico win.

Michael Umana scored the decisive penalty as Costa Rica won the shootout 5-3 after the game ended 1-1 following extra time.

Gambling911.com watched the game from a New York City sports bar where 99.99% of those present were backing Costa Rica (no offense to the Greeks).
