Costa Rica will debut in their fourth World Cup on June 14 when they face Uruguay at Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza and the clash will not be an easy feat.
This will be a key match for Costa Rica because they share group with two European heavyweights: Italy and England.
Coach Jorge Luis Pinto knows his side needs to impress and play like never before to secure its first win in Brazil and their second overall in World Cups.
This match could very well serve Costa Rica as a vendetta, after Uruguay eliminated them in the 2010 World Cup playoff.
