Costa Rica collected their first points at the 2009 World Youth Championship, beating Australia 3-0 in Wednesday’s Group E clash.

The Central Americans were never truly threatened by their Australian opponents, and took the lead through Diego Madrigal in the 35th minute.

An own goal from Luke Devere doubled the gap with eight minutes left in regular time, and David Guzman added a third in the 93rd minute.

Costa Rica move to third place with three points from two games, but do still have a negative goal record as the victory over Australia wasn’t as big as the 5-0 defeat by Brazil in their opening game.

Australia’s chances of making it to the next round are close to zero, after having lost both of their first two games.
