Here is the shootout save that gave Costa Rica the win over Greece (Video)

Costa Rica converted all five of their penalty kicks in a shootout with Greece to win the match 2-1 Sunday and advance to the quarterfinals of the World Cup.

Gekas went left on his attempt, and Costa Rican keeper Keylor Navas dived to his right and made the stop. Costa Rica’s Michael Umana then made the fifth and final attempt to give his country the win.
