They had zero in their 7-0 defeat against Germany.Costa Rica have Navas to thank. Their performance as a whole was not world-class, but the veteran keeper made some vital saves and did an excellent job of commanding his backline.Japan had 13 shots and 57% ball possession but were frustrated by the Costa Rican defence. They also were not helped by the fact that they lacked quality in attack, making a few too many wayward passes.
