Arsenal striker lights up World Cup

Arsenal striker Joel Campbell was hugely instrumental in causing the biggest upset in this year's World Cup so far, as Costa Rica belied their underdog status to emerge victorious against the much-fancied Uruguay.

Despite being a Gunner for the last three years, Campbell is yet to kick a ball in the famous red and white. After this performance, Arsenal fans will be clamouring for his inclusion in the squad. Meanwhile, other clubs will be hoping the Gunners loan him out again.

Campbell is not renowned for his team-play, yet set up Costa Rica's third goal with a sublime pass.

Prior to that, Campbell started Costa Rica's recovery with a cool left foot strike to level the scores at 1-1.

The 21-year-old didn't win a lot of headers, but was menacing on the ground: unleashing a couple of long-distance pile drivers that went narrowly wide.
