Turkey coach Senol Gunes remains confident his side can still reach the last 16 despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Costa Rica.

“It was a bitter disappointment for us,” said Gunes.

“Some of my players were tired at the end and Costa Rica were able to equalise.”

“I am confident we will beat China and then we will wait for the right result of the Costa Rica-Brazil match,” he added.

But his Costa Rica counterpart, Alexandre Guimaraes, sounded equally upbeat after seeing his side snatch a late equaliser.

“It will be a very interesting game but my players showed their character today and against Brazil I am sure we can get a point and go into the last 16,” said Guimaraes.

“We played some great football today and showed so much power. I’m very proud of the team,” he added.
