Costa Rica: Everything you need to know about the team heading into the World Cup

Costa Rica are set to make a sixth appearance in the World cup this November. This is also their 3rd consecutive appearance. The side have made it out of their group twice previously.

They are drawn into Group E which also features Spain, Japan and Germany. Given the quality of other teams in the group, they are extremely unlikely to make it to the knockouts. And they are probably going to finish the tournament at the bottom of the table.

Group stage fixtures

Group E

23 November 2022 v Spain Doha, Qatar
27 November 2022 v Japan Al Rayyan, Qatar
1 December 2022 v Germany Al Khor, Qatar
