Soccer-Costa Rica's Navas defies Dutch in goalless first half


SALVADOR, Brazil, July 5 (Reuters) - The Netherlands looked

the more likely team to score but were unable to break the

resistance of underdogs Costa Rica during a goalless first half

of their World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.

Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas pulled off a string of

fine saves to keep the sides on level terms including one from

Robin van Persie after 21 minutes, another from Memphis Depay

and a third from a Wesley Sneijder free kick.
