Man of the Match Japan vs Costa Rica
Japan controlled the ball 57% in the entire match and created 13 shots from which 3 were on target but Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas saved not only goals but the entire team in the world cup bravely. So Keylor Navas is the man of the match in the Japan vs Costa Rica match.
Turning Point Japan vs Costa Rica
Japan played a decent game by keeping ball possession, accurate passing, and taking many shots. But amazing saves from Keylor Navas (Costa Rica’s Goalkeeper) and a soft goal from Keyser Fuller in the 81st minute turned the match in Costa Rica’s bucket.
Why did Costa Rica Win?
Costa Rica played calmly and not made many mistakes as they did in the previous game. Even though they have not taken many shots but always tried for a perfect one which they got in the 81st minute. They have not made many fouls and tried to play the technical game in which they got succeded.
Why did Japan Lose?
What I felt for Japan, the same happened. How Japan won against Germany looked like they have played in over excitement and beyond their limits. It was very hard to continue with the same energy and excitement in future games. They should have focused more on their skilled attacks and strong defense. But looks like they got overconfident and took Costa Rica lightly which cost them dearly
Costa Rica played nice but not as well as the Round of 16 teams should play. They will be eliminated from the Round of 16 even if they qualified. Japan played decent and they have skills to progress further but lack of experience may hurt them in this tournament.
