A late equaliser from Gloriana Villalobos ensured that Costa Rica came back to earn a 2-2 draw against South Korea in Group E of the Women's World Cup this evening.
The saves were to prove important in the opening stages as Costa Rica soon found themselves 1-0 ahead thanks to Melissa Herrera, who profited from a needless free kick to convert past the South Korean keeper.
The South Koreans soon found themselves ahead as Jeon Gauel produced some clever work inside the area to fire home past a helpless Diaz in the Costa Rica goal.
Costa Rica were nearly back in the game with just under 15 minutes to play, but defender Lixy Rodríguez was unfortunately denied by the post.
With the clock ticking down, Rodriguez's side applied just enough pressure in the final moments and Villalobos showed a cool head in the 89th minute as she finished smartly to leave the final score at 2-2.
