Arsenal striker Joel Campbell was the star in Costa Rica's World Cup win over Uruguay.

The forward, having spent three of his five-year deal with Arsenal on loan to other clubs, is yet to be given a chance in the Premier League by Arsene Wenger.

The 21-year-old put in a commanding performance for Costa Rica in their 3-1 win over Uruguay, scoring one and setting up another.

He was shipped out on loan to Ligue 1's Lorient and La Liga's Real Betis, before becoming instrumental in Olympiacos winning the Greek Super League by a landslide 17 points.

Campbell is eligible to play for Arsenal, having tweeted his joy at receiving a work permit in July 2013.
