They though have made six changes, including resting their front three. And with Costa Rica’s belief and desire – who knows?

Welcome to my live-text coverage of the final group games of the 2015 Women’s World Cup. Brazil are through as group winners, but who will join them? Costa Rica need to beat Brazil to be sure of qualifying, but a 2-2 draw should see them through. Spain and South Korea know they have to win to qualify, with 4 points enough to see them claim one of the four best third place spots. It’s going to be exciting.
