Brasilia, Brazil - Costa Rica attempts to continue its Cinderella run at the World Cup when the Ticos tangle with the Netherlands at the Arena Fonte Nova. Corey Coleman Jersey . Listen to the game live starting at 4pm et/1pm pt on TSN 1050, TSN 690, TSN 1200, and TEAM 1410. Costa Rica reached the last eight for the first time after topping Greece in penalty kicks in the round of 16, while the Dutch are attempting to reach back-to-back World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1974 and 1978. The Ticos were viewed as outsiders in Group D, which included Italy, England and Uruguay, but after claiming seven points to win that group, Jorge Luis Pintos team came up against a stubborn Greek side making its first-ever knockout-round appearance. Bryan Ruiz scored early in the second half to put Costa Rica in front, but after defender Oscar Duarte received a second yellow card in the 66th minute, Pintos team spent much of the remainder of the match defending. They almost got over the line, but Sokratis Papastathopoulos scored for Greece in stoppage time, forcing the match into extra time and ultimately penalty kicks. But Costa Rica survived the ordeal to win 5-3 in the shootout, showing the resilience the team has exhibited throughout the tournament. "It was a dramatic match, a very difficult one," Pinto said after the game with Greece. "There were moments when we dominated the match but there were other moments when they did but we were strong and we came through." If Costa Rica is going to continue its journey, the team is going to have to be even stronger against the favored Dutch, who have won all four of their games at this World Cup. The team trailed 1-0 against Mexico in the round of 16 entering the final five minutes, but Wesley Sneijder fired home the equalizer a few minutes from time before Arjen Robben drew a foul inside the penalty area, allowing Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to fire home the winning goal from the spot. Louis van Gaals side has made a habit of coming back in Brazil as the team has given up the first goal in three of its four games so far, only to rally for the win each time. "I think we are on a mission together, and when you come to a World Cup its not to enjoy the weather and enjoy the beach in Rio," said Robben, who has tallied three goals and an assist so far. "Youre here to win matches and to go as far as possible. I dont think the expectations were that high before the tournament and, as a result, we can be very proud of where we are." The Dutch found themselves in a tough group with Spain, Chile and Australia, but after winning all three games to sit atop the group, the Oranje have a great chance at making another deep run. Things have come together nicely for the Dutch as the team ended up with a pair of teams from CONCACAF in its first two knockout-round games, making Van Gaals men favorites to reach the last four. But Robben isnt looking too far past the Ticos, especially since the team has already toppled favored sides like Italy and Uruguay. "I think theyre a very strong team. We have to stay focused," Robben told FIFA.com. "Costa Rica have a very good team, they have already proved that in their group, which was very tough, with Italy, England and Uruguay in there. Theyve been really impressive and well have to prepare very well if were going to beat them." One player who wont be available to Van Gaal the rest of the tournament is midfielder Nigel de Jong, who was forced off the field against Mexico after nine minutes because of a groin injury. Costa Rica will be a bit shorthanded in defense after Duartes red card, while Roy Miller is unlikely to be fit in time to face the Dutch because of a foot injury. Pintos team will once again embrace the role of underdogs, and although they have made history already in Brazil, dont expect the Ticos to be content. "We respect the Netherlands, just as we respect all our rivals, but the story goes on and were hungry for more," Pinto said. Isaiah Crowell Jersey .

A confident Chiudinelli and Lammer defeated veteran doubles player Zimonjic and young Krajinovic 7-6 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2.Graeme Souness reflects on Leicesters remarkable season, how they have ripped up the rule book, where their achievements rank and what the future might hold for the Foxes... In this most incredible Premier League year, would anybody be surprised if Leicester went to Old Trafford, one of the greatest football stadiums in the world, and won the league there?They have already torn up the rule book by the way they play. They have so little possession, players that were relatively unknown, a small budget, but they are the dominant team in the league. Fair play to them. I wouldnt be surprised if they won the title this weekend. I dont think they will, but I wouldnt be surprised.Claudio Ranieri has come up with a system that defies logic. They give the ball away - they have the lowest passing accuracy in the league - and their goalkeeper has passed the ball into the final third 482 times, more than any other player in the league aside from Cesc Fabregas. That would suggest they are a long ball team, but they are a joy to watch.They dont strike me as a basic back to front team, they have far more to their game than that, but the stats suggest they are. They have torn up the rule book.They should not be where they are with the players they have, the size of the club, and the fact they give the ball away so much. Its a remarkable story.They have always got the vast majority of players behind the ball because when they win it their first thought is to turn the opposition back four, which means you dont have midfield players going beyond the strikers and they are always in possession when it breaks down. Its a very simple way of playing but they play it in an entertaining fashion.I was surprised at the start of the season with Ranieris appointment. It was hard on Nigel Pearson to lose his job and he left a wonderful situation for Ranieri to come in and inherit. Ranieri has come up with a system that suits his players. He has looked at them, seen their strengths and weaknesses and it has worked perfectly. They should not be where they are with the players they have, the size of the club, and the fact they give the ball away so much. Its a remarkable story. Graeme Souness Leicester winning the league will be one of the greatest football achievements. Its up there with anything you want to name whether in the Premier League or old First Division.Given the game has moved on and the riches the big clubs have in the Champions League, for a small team today its very different to when Nottingham Forest won the league (1977/78) and then the European Cup (1978/79 and 1979/80). The riches for the big clubs are far greater than in days gone by.The Champions League will be exciting for Leicester next season. You dont know what group of players they will have but they will certainly make an impression aand leave their mark. Custom Cleveland Browns Jerseys. Leicester will be joining Real Madrid and Barcelona in the Champions League next season The added finances that come into the club for winning the league will allow them to have a stronger squad and they will need that to play in Europe as well as the Premier League.This weekend they can win the title and you wont see anything different from Ranieri against Manchester United. He feels he has a group that can go anywhere and win, and so he should, they are top of the league by seven points. If youre not confident now, you will never be confident. Why would they change? They are seven points in front with three games to play. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri says he cannot believe the position his team are in with three games to go But it will be a different challenge for them. Swansea were ideal opposition last weekend. They were in their armchairs, heads already somewhere else and with a coach who might be not be there next season. It was the perfect game for Leicester.This weekend will be different as they are playing against a Man Utd team who are stubborn, well organised and have something to play for. However, they are going into the game looking in their rear mirror and not seeing anyone.If Tottenham had won the other night they would be there. Now Leicester know they can lose two games and still get there. They could even lose all three and still win it, so they are in a wonderful situation.Watch Manchester United v Leicester live on Sky Sports 1 HD on Sunday from 1pm, or watch for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.
