Bryan Ruiz strikes from range after ghosting past Daniele de Rossi, but his low shot is straight at Gigi Buffon. Not great work from De Rossi, to be fair.
Estevao, I know! Where are the party fouls? To be fair, Buffon almost had one early on.
Five minutes left of the half here...
Close for Campbell! Júnior Díaz whips in a low cross from the left but Giorgio Chiellini does brilliantly to prevent the forward finishing as he forces a corner.
Buffon gets the corner clear but COsta Rica come back...
Bryan Ruiz dinks in a gorgeous ball from the right and Oscar Duarte is beneath it, but his reverse header is over from six yards with Buffon stranded.
Campbell goes down in the box...no penalty!
Wow, what a call that is!
Joel Campbell drives at goal and breaks into the box, and Giorgio Chiellini clumsily barges him to the ground. It's a clear penalty, but the referee waves play on!
Pirlo has completed only 23 passes so far. This would be the lowest in a first half in any of the World Cup games he has featured in (10 games).
Kevbo, absolutely the wrong call. A clear, clear foul.
GOAL!!! Italy 0-1 Costa Rica (Bryan Ruiz '44)
