The primary star in the team of Costa Rica is, certainly, Keylor Navas, the regular goalkeeper of Real Madrid. Also, in Europe they know well Bryan Ruiz who has successfully performed in Sporting CP for last years.
Other football players of the Costa Rica national football team play in modest clubs. However, the players of Oscar Ramirez, first of all, have strong team spirit and perfectly play together — almost the same squad of Costa Rica caused the furore on the World Cup in Brazil four years ago.
