World Cup Finals 2014

Match of the Day Live: MOTD: Netherlands v Costa Rica

About this programme

Netherlands v Costa Rica (Kick-off 9.00pm). Coverage of the fourth quarter-final from the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil, where the line-up for the semi-finals is confirmed. Costa Rica are in uncharted territory having never made it to this stage at any previous World Cup finals that they have qualified for, but they have impressed hugely in this tournament, progressing at the expense of Italy and England, before beating Greece on penalties in the last round. The Netherlands have an excellent World Cup pedigree, finishing as runners-up on three occasions, most recently in South Africa four years ago, and they were one of the top performing sides during the group stage this time around, following those displays with a late fightback against Mexico to book their place in the last eight.
