FIFA World Cup 2014 Costa Rica Squad: Football Team & Player List

The South American nation makes only their fourth appearance in the competition. Despite their players playing in leagues across Europe, Costa Rica might end up being whipping-boys in the ‘Group of death’.  They are clubbed with England, Uruguay and Italy in their group.

 

They do have players to trouble opponents though. They have a genuine goal-scoring midfielder in Celso Borges. Captain Bryan Ruiz can be menace to defenders with his footwork and Joel Campbell has proved to be a revelation in recent times. The team is coached by Columbian Jorge Luis Pinto and has the country’s all-time great Paulo Wanchope as his deputy.
