FORTALEZA, Brazil, AFP — COSTA Rica emerged as the giant killers of the World Cup after causing the biggest upset against Uruguay in spectacular fashion yesterday morning (Fiji time).

As injured star striker Luis Suarez watched, Costa Rica came from a goal down to beat the South American champions 3-1.

To make matters worse for the Uruguayans, Maxi Pereira became the first player to be sent off at the tournament after a wild lunge on Costa Rica's Joel Campbell in injury time.

After Edinson Cavani gave the South Americans the lead from the penalty spot in the first half, Costa Rica roared back with two goals in three minutes from Campbell and Oscar Duarte.

Costa Rica grabbed a third through substitute Marcos Urena to throw Group D, which also features England and Italy, wide open. Italy beat England 2-1 in their first game.
