Costa Rica Football Fans Body Paint World Cup

 http://site-models-ella.blogspot.com/Friday is the big day, and football (soccer) fans in Costa Rica are anxiously awaiting to witness what promises to be one of the most exciting games of 2013. On that day, the Costa Rica National Football Team (La Sele) will host their counterparts from the United States in what has been repeatedly reported as: “the ultimate grudge match.”
This international match is part of the qualification path to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, which is sure to be one of the most memorable sports events of the 21st century. Football players in Costa Rica and around the world would like nothing more to one day tell their grandchildren: “I represented our country’s national football team in Brazil,” or “I played at the Estadio do Maracana; it was a deafening roar.” Although it is important for both the U.S. and Costa Rica to come away victorious this Friday for the purpose of keeping World Cup hopes alive, this game has an important matter to settle.

The matter is what happened earlier this year at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Colorado, where the U.S. hosted Costa Rica during polar conditions unbecoming a football match. The U.S. team came away with three points after a sole goal by Clint Dempsey 16 minutes after the game started. The officials brought out the yellow balls needed for low visibility conditions, but after a while the snowfall had blanketed the entire stadium, the players could not see the markings, and the ball could barely move forward.

For hecklers and badgerers, the game was a lot of fun. Players could barely stay on their feet and were visibly frustrated; fans began lodging snowballs into the pitch and at each other in the seats; ESPN broadcasters Bob Ley, Alexi Lalas and Kasey Keller put on anoraks and ludicrous snow hats, and the second half played out like a rugby game where players could not touch the ball or each other with their hands.


The game was an embarrassment for FIFA, and Costa Rica’s late appeal fell on deaf ears. It was resolved that the matter was to be left alone, at least until the next match against the U.S., and that time has come. La sele is ready to reclaim the three point lost in the snow, and fans in Costa Rica are fine tuning their secret weapons: Heckling, baiting and riding.
