I've never seen a team celebrate harder for a tie.  Costa Rica knew they needed to walk away with at least a point against Korea this past Sunday at Montreal's Olympic Stadium to have any chance of moving on to the knockout rounds.  A goal late in second half sent the Costa Rican team and fans alight as both erupted into a fervor fit more for the finals.  In the end the Ticas would fall short of the knockout rounds, but not without leaving everything they had on the field.
