( — July 1, 2014) Alajuela, Alajuela — Brazil is on fire this year!  Vamos Rent-A-Car is showing their support for the national soccer team with an unbelievable offer:  free car rentals for customers renting between June the 20th and July 13th when Costa Rica enters the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final Round.

Costa Rica finally shook off their underdog status going into the semi-final game against surprise qualifiers, Greece.  Captain Bryan Ruiz scored a goal in the first half and looked good for a win, despite questionable refereeing led to goalkeeper Keylor.  The Costa Rican team was down one man, after Durante was ejected, but they played on with determination.  Just seconds before the final whistle, in injury time, Greece scored an equalizing goal and the game took on a whole new perspective with the tired teams forced to play on for an extra thirty minutes.

After a nail-biting two hours of play, the teams remained locked in a draw.  The following penalties had fans at the edge of the seats until man of the match, Navas, saved a penalty and Costa Rica went on to be the last eight teams in the World Cup.  The country’s team made tournament history by advancing and red-shirted fans filled the streets of the capital with the celebrations continuing ‘til the morning!

Costa Rica was not intimidated by being drawn in the so-called ‘group of death’, Group D with three previous World Cup winners:  Italy, Uruguay and England, ending the group round in the coveted number one spot.  Now the real test of the Central American Mata-Gigantes or Giant-Slayers will be their match on Saturday, July 5 against the might of Holland who left 2010 World Cup champions Spain by the wayside as they charged through their group and crushed Mexico in the closing seconds of the match.

The semi-finals games have proved tense and controversial with European teams France and Germany making it through to the quarter-finals despite heat and humidity, which appears to have wiped the likes of Italy, England and Spain off the World Cup map.

Vamos Rent-A-Car knows the underdog feeling as a local company in the competitive car rental market, filled with well-known international franchises, but like the national team, has proved to the world that they can compete with the best and come out on top.

Enjoy your vacation, cheer on the Costa Rican national team and get your car rental reimbursed when the Selection gets through to the World Cup Final.
