Costa Rica's fairy-tale run at the 2014 FIFA World Cup will continue with a first-ever appearance in the quarter-finals after a 5-3 shoot-out triumph over knockout stage debutants Greece.

Levante UD goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who had been struggling with a knee injury in extra time, saved Fanis Gekas's spot kick after the first seven had been converted with aplomb. Michael Umana then stepped up to win it for a side that were reduced to ten men when Oscar Duarte was sent off in the 66th minute. Costa Rica now play the Netherlands on Saturday.
