Everyone loves to see the underdog take over the scene, and that is exactly what Costa Rica has done. Our South American friends crushed Uruguay 3-1 to open their World Cup 2014 appearance. A 1-0 win over Italy has set these super stars as the leader in what many considered the the World Cup’s most competitive group, the D bracket (England, Italy, Uruguay, Costa Rica, all former WC champions). With a draw against England (0-0), Costa Rica now moves to the second round with their best performance ever in a World Cup.
House of Marley would like to congratulate our ambassadors Joel Campbell and Yeltsen Tejeda on their amazing accomplishments thus far. We are honored to have these two greats representing our brand — both Campbell and Tejeda were sent off to Brazil with customized Marley Liberate headphones.
Campbell set the pace and scored the first goal for Costa Rica in the 53rd minute which tied up the opening match 1-1 verses Uruguay. Tejeda, a starting midfielder doing what he does best, dominating the field.
Good luck to Costa Rica and all the athletes representing their countries in the World Cup 2014!
