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.
