Video: Will Costa Rica pull off another shock and dump Netherlands out of the World Cup?

The Sports Mole Sofa give their thoughts on the World Cup quarter-final between Netherlands and Costa Rica.

Costa Rica are undoubtedly the surprise team in the World Cup's last eight, escaping from a group that contained Italy, England and Uruguay before overcoming Greece on penalties in the last 16.

They now face the Netherlands on Saturday in the quarter-finals and many expect that their fairytale journey in Brazil will end.

Here, the Sports Mole Sofa of Matt Law, Barney Corkhill and Pascal Lemesre give their thoughts on the match in Salvador.
