  • COSTA RICA LEAD! Incredibly, Costa Rica's first shot on target in the Qatar World Cup results in what could be a winning goal!! After Japan lose the ball, Fuller receives it from Tejeda on the brink of the box, then coolly curls the ball into the back of the net via Gonda's outstretched fingertips! Costa Rica 1-0 Japan!
