Organised Costa Rica eye another upset against ItalyShunning the flamboyance and individuality that has previously characterised their game, Costa Rica and their collection of nimble attacking talents face Italy Friday ready to produce another World Cup shock.Cesare Prandelli's team have a long-established tradition of winning games without looking like world beaters, and are unlikely to attack in the same manner as the more tactically naive Uruguay.Andrea Pirlo showed against England that he remains the best midfield controller currently in the game and despite his advancing years, shrugged off the heat and humidity to dictate play against Roy Hodgson's young side.Italy hope goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and defender Mattia De Sciglio will have recovered from injury in time for the game after both missed the win over England.
