Despite Costa Rica losing 1-0 to Mexico from a dodgy penalty, resulting in them being dumped out of the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals, can we all take a second to appreciate Joel Campbell’s run?
Picking up the ball on the left wing near the halfway line, the 23-year-old makes a blistering run up the pitch before dribbling inside the area, passing the ball expertly and receiving it straight back. Unfortunately, his shot was saved but the run itself was astonishing.
Although there’s talk of Campbell going back on loan or even being sold to Real Sociedad, I sincerely hope he finds a team where he can get consistent football, as the talent is there.
