After leading 1-0 in the 56th minute, Colombia found themselves losing after two quick goals by Costa Rica in the 63rd and 65th minute. Colombia managed to tie the score on a cross that was headed in by Franco. Costa Rica’s goalkeeper could have be given an assist in this goal, with only 11 minutes to play. In the third minute of extra time Colombia was awarded a dubious penalty kick, that the Costa Rican players contested vigorously. James left footed it to the right of the goalkeeper who guessed right by was unable to stop Colombia from scoring.
