Brazil overcame Costa Rica 1-0 on Tuesday to reach the FIFA U-20 World Cup final.

The first half ended with a goalless draw despite efforts from both sides.

During the second half, both teams tried hard to score until Brazil forward Alan Kardec found the net at the 67th minute through a powerful shot.

After the goal, Costa Rica tried to equalize but the Brazilians denied all their attempts.

The match witnessed a large number of yellow cards. The two teams were yellow carded five times each.

Brazil is to meet Ghana in Friday's final.
