Costa Rica Portraits - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Costa Rica World Cup Squad Photos

The Ticos made a huge statement during the early stages of qualification, trouncing the United States 4-0 and sending the Yanks’ coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, to the unemployment line. This Central American side is legit, having secured passage to four of the last five World Cups and making it to the quarterfinals in 2014. Captain Bryan Ruiz is a stabilizing force in the midfield and attacker Joel Campbell is capable of generating something spectacular whenever he is on the pitch. But the team’s undisputed star is goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who just won his third consecutive Champions League title with Real Madrid.

Here, portraits of all 23 players on the 2018 World Cup squad.
