FORTALEZA, Brazil -- Watching from the bench, Luis Suarez saw just how much his teammates miss him. Uruguay was overrun 3-1 Friday by Group D underdog Costa Rica at the World Cup, a stunning result for the team that reached the semifinals four years ago and had every reason to think it could repeat that in Brazil. Even with Suarez staying on the bench for the entire game after failing to fully recover from knee surgery, coach Oscar Tabarez fielded a side that included eight players from the 2010 team. But after going ahead through a first-half penalty, Uruguay was taken apart on counterattacks as Costa Rica scored three times in the second half to open Group D with a major upset. "We made mistakes today that we havent made for a long time. Its too early to explain this," Tabarez said. "Football means that sometimes you have to lose. You cant lose heart, you just have to improve." The Uruguayans took the lead in the 24th minute when Edinson Cavani converted a spot kick that was awarded after captain Diego Lugano tumbled to the ground with defender Junior Diaz tugging at his waist. But after the goal, Uruguay lost the initiative and Costa Rica -- seen as a massive underdog in a group that also includes England and Italy -- fought back after the break. Costa Ricas lone striker Joel Campbell led most of the teams counterattacks and finally delivered the equalizer in the 54th, driving in a ball headed down by Celso Borges to beat goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. Oscar Duarte dived past the outstretched foot of Uruguays Cristian Stuani to head in the winner for the Central Americans, and substitute Marcos Urena added the third with six minutes left, catching out Muslera to slot the ball in from a tight angle. "We spotted that they had weaknesses and we looked at those. We worked hard on headers and ways to dominate in the air and we did that tonight," Costa Rica coach Jorge Luis Pinto said. The disastrous night in injury time when Maxi Pereira was sent off for a clumsy foul on Campbell. Pereira will be suspended from the next game against England, while Tabarez said Suarezs participation for next Thursdays match in Sao Paolo is also uncertain. Diego Forlan, the player of the tournament in 2010, took Suarezs place in attack. But in Fortaleza, the 35-year-old forward only displayed a single flash of his former greatness: Curling a deadly ball toward the Costa Rican a minute before halftime, in an effort punched out by in-form keeper Keylor Navas. Forlan was eventually substituted on the hour for Nicolas Lodeiro. Even without Suarez, the team doesnt need a tactical overhaul to bounce back from the defeat, Tabarez said. "Weve being playing this way for eight years. I dont see why we should do anything different right know," he said. "It worked in South Africa and after that. Defence is not a dirty word." Pinto, the Costa Rica coach, was less philosophical. "What counted is that we stayed calm and kept creating opportunities against a very tough team," Pinto said. "We have great respect for Uruguay but we werent that impressed tonight." ------ Lineups Uruguay: Fernando Muslera, Diego Lugano, Diego Godin, Walter Gargano (Alvaro Gonzalez, 60), Cristian Rodriguez, Diego Forlan (Nicolas Lodeiro, 60), Cristian Stuani, Maxi Pereira, Egidio Arevalo, Edinson Cavani, Martin Caceres.

PAUL, Minn.MARKHAM, Ont. -- A proposed NHL-size arena in Markham, Ont., is moving one step closer to being built. Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti says the city has signed two new memorandums of understanding that mean no taxpayer dollars will be used to build the arena. He says a memorandum of understanding has been signed with the private sector that will see half of the projects $325 million cost covered by developers and the lease of the arena itself. A second memorandum of understanding has been signed between the city and GTA Sports and Entertainment, which will cover the other half of building costs. "This is a very positive step towards bringing a world-class facility to Markham", said Scarpitti. "The support from our developer community has been outstandding.ddddddddddddThey are stepping up again like they did for other projects like the YMCA and the expansion of the Markham Stouffville Hospital. "The benefits for Markham are significant, including hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in economic activity for local businesses." The two agreements mean the city no longer has to taken on loans for the project, which would now be 100 per cent privately funded. Both memorandums of understanding need approval of Markham city council for the project to move forward. Details of the two agreements will be presented to residents at a city council meeting on Monday. Scarpitti says the proposed 20,000 seat arena -- which will be called the GTA Centre -- doesnt need an NHL franchise to thrive. ' ' '
