    "Easiest" quarter finals for sure.

    Netherlands x Belgium in the semi?

    Costa Rica won with a man down for an hour. Beat 3 WC champs and yea let's write them off like nothing. Costa Rica was much much better then Mexico in qualifiers

    O and way to just write off Messi and Argentina

    I'm not writing off Costa Rica... but yes, CR is the weakest team to reach the quarter-finals (IF we don't get any surprise in the rest of the matches for the round of 16) and even their supporters should admit they are the underdogs against NL.

    Similarly, I'm not writing off Argentina. I think they are the favorites to reach the semifinals but they are still to be tested against a strong team following their weak display in the group stages. Indeed, a semi with Belgium x Netherlands would be really interesting.

    Netherlands doesn't have a strong defense, don't underestimate Costa Rica who has more skillful forwards than Mexico and may cause you a lot of trouble.

    I think Costa Rica will win, I don't have any doubt other than the unpredictability in Robben and the referee.

    CR may be more organized than Mexico but in my opinion Giovani dos Santos is much better than Campbell... Mexico has Chicarito as a strong option while CR relies too much on Campbell. Also, Ochoa was in god mod this World Cup.

    Overall, CR may continue surprising but MX has a stronger team.

    Mexico has a stronger team, but in the attack I think Costa Rica is better. Mexico is more predictable, Oribe and Chicharito depend a lot on someone assisting them, Giovani is skillful but he only knows how to use his left. Mexico depend a lot of group team to attack, Costa Rica on the other hand has faster and skillful players that can cause a lot of trouble. If even Peralta looked faster than some Netherland defenders, I can't imagine the trouble they may have against CR.

    Still, except by Campbell they might be fast but not really skillful (as Mexican forwards).

    Won't be easy, but the Costa Ricans are too tired plus we have (alongside J. Rodriguez) the best player in this WC Arjen Robben, who can rape defence s on his own. 3-1.

    It's time for Costa Rica to go home. Well done & all that shit, but enough is enough tbh.
