World Cup surprise package Costa Rica visited Pelé's museum in Santos on Wednesday. Los Ticos meet Holland at the Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador, in the World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday (KO 21:00 BST).


Costa Rica visited Pelé's museum in Santos hoping that his Brazilian magic might rub off on them when they face Holland in the World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

Los Ticos travel to the Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador on the back of their best-ever World Cup campaign.

The museum opened a few weeks ago and has almost 3,000 memorabilia related to the Brazilian football legend, some of them from his personal collection.

Pelé is Brazil's record goalscorer and won the World Cup three times.

The Central Americans have been training at the stadium of Pele's former club Santos since they arrived in Brazil. Every player was given a Santos kit by the club with his name printed on the back.

According to the Happy Planet Index, Costa Ricans are the happiest people on Earth. Los Ticos fans will hope to have a smile on their face after their last eight clash.
