Group E began with another debutant head-to-head as the entertaining Spanish faced a well-drilled Costa Rican side at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal.

Spain found the breakthrough thanks to a measured strike by 24 year old forward Vicky Losada after superbly controlling a Sonia Bermudez centre.

But it took just 60 seconds for the Costa Ricans to respond and respond brilliantly they did, as Lixy Rodriguez burst into Spain’s penalty area and her centred pass found Player of the Match Rodriquez Cedeno unmarked, and she duly tapped home to level the match.

28 year old midfielder Veronica Boquette did become more influential as the game wore on but Costa Rica’s goalkeeper Dinnia Diaz was equal to anything the spaniards could throw at her.
