Italy vs Costa Rica by Topspin77
Italy won 2-1 with England, Costa Rica produced a shock already beating Uruguay and Uruguay sent home the Albion player with a good 2-1 win last night!
This means that Italy will be qualified with a win and will not want to make any concession to a side that is playing well on counterattacking.
Costa Rica has surprised Uruguay, but I am not sure if they will be able to produce the same things tonight.
Italy is not having exceptional player, but has a group that is very powerful and committed to the philosophy of Prandelli. This means a balanced side, good in attack and also in defensive.
Costa Rica will need space for developing their counters, but I am not sure will find them with Italy.
Italy has shown they are very solid in attack and against a fragile defensive of Los Ticos, they should be able top score and not to concede.
Italy (4-3-1-2): Buffon – Darmian, Bonucci, Chiellini, Abate – Pirlo, De Rossi, Motta – Marchisio – Candreva, Balotelli
Costa Rica (5-4-1) : Navas – Gamboa, Duarte, Gonzalez, Umana, Diaz – Tejeda, Ruiz, Borges, Bolanos – Campbell
