Another gathering that could be viewed as a “Gathering of Death” is suitably named “Gathering D” – and it is likewise a merciless one: Italy, England, Uruguay, and Costa Rica.
While many say Costa Rica doesn’t have a potential for success, they aren’t a crew that anybody should rest on with rising 21-year-old star Joel Campbell driving the charge.
