Diary

Monday, 12 May 2014 - Jorge Luis Pinto has named a 26-man squad for the World Cup finals in Brazil, with three names to be cut before the competition. The Colombian has chosen 11 Europe-based players, led by Fulham midfielder Bryan Ruiz, who is on loan at PSV Eindhoven, and Olympiacos striker Joel Campbell.

Costa Rica will play Japan on 2 June and Republic of Ireland four days later, both games in the United States.

Monday, 2 June 2014 - Costa Rica have confirmed their 23-man World Cup squad, with first-choice forward Alvaro Saborio ruled out with a broken foot. The Real Salt Lake striker, 32, who scored eight goals during qualifying, was injured in a training session. Everton defender Bryan Oviedo was already ruled out through injury having broken his leg against Stevenage in the FA Cup in January. But Arsenal's Joel Campbell and Fulham's Bryan Ruiz are selected. Campbell spent last season on loan at Olympiakos, while fellow forward Ruiz ended the campaign on loan at PSV.
The two other players cut were Carlos Hernandez and Kendall Waston.
In the evening, Costa Rica are beaten 3-1 by Jaai in a warm-up match in Tampa.

Friday, 6 June 2014 - A pair of second-half penalties decided the friendly between Costa Rica and the Republic of Ireland, which ended 1-1. Costa Rica avoided a second straight defeat thanks to Celso Borges' penalty just after the hour mark after Kevin Doyle's opener, while Ireland captain Robbie Keane was denied from the spot soon after by substitute goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton at PPL Park, Pennsylvania. Pemberton, who replaced Keylor Navas at half-time, was crucial to Costa Rica holding on for a draw, with the Central Americans playing the entire second half with 10 players due to Giancarlo Gonzalez's 41st-minute red card.

Saturday, 14 June 2014 - Costa Rica open their World Cup account playing Uruguay. They come from behind to beat them 3-1. A Campbell shot, Duarte header and Ureña shot seal the surprise win.

Friday, 20 June 2014 - Brian Ruiz scores the only goal of the game as they beat Italy and secure their passage into the knock-out stages. The goal also eliminates England from the tournament.
