Qatar 2022: Costa Rica book final World Cup spot

By Emmanuel Okogba
An early Joel Campbell goal helped Costa Rica beat New Zealand to secure the final spot at this year’s FIFA World Cup holding in Qatar.
Campbell latched onto a Jewison Bennette cross in the 3rd minute that flew past Oliver Sail in goal to send the Central America nation to their third consecutive World Cup final.
New Zealand were seeking a return to the summit of football since they last featured when South Africa hosted in 2010.
The All Whites’ push for an equaliser to drag the game into extra-time was checked mid-way into the second half when striker Kosta Barbarouses was shown a red card.
With Costa Rica’s victory, all thirty-two (32) teams are now complete for November’s kick-off.
