By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Costa Rica made an amazing comeback after being down 4-1 to beat El Salvador 5-4 and captured the U19 FIFA FORWARD Central American Championship at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan on Saturday night.
Fabián Arroyo put the Costa Ricans ahead in the 20’ but then the Costa Rican side fell apart. El Salvador scored four consecutive goals by Mayer Gil (30’), Andrés Rivas (37’, 53’) and Daniel Cruz (47’).
But instead of El Salvador locking the game, they in turn unravelled as Josimar Alcocer responded for Costa Rica in 55’ to put the game 4-2. Andrey Soto connected in the 61’ and then Alcocer again in the 81’ to even the score at 4-4.
But the Costa Ricans did want to hear anything about penalty kicks and secured the championship on a second Soto goal in the 90’.
