Soccer crazy Ticos!

The country was paralyzed for half a day, some schools had no classes and the government gave its employees half a day off. All this because of the inaugural game of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in which Costa Rica faced host Germany. Despite the 4-2 loss Ticos everywhere enjoyed the vibrant and record-breaking game.
