Facts :
Costa Rica has taken part in every FIFA World Cup qualifying competition since 1958, winning through to the finals in 1990 and 2002. They proved one of the surprises of Italy '90, racking up two memorable wins against European sides when they defeated Scotland 1-0 and Sweden 2-1.
Their campaign ended in the round of sixteen, where they were crushed 4-1 by Czechoslovakia. Costa Rica put in another strong performance in 2002, only going out in the group round on goal difference to eventual semi-finalists Turkey.
Their best result came in 1946, when they beat Panama 12-0. Their most ignominious defeat was at the hands of Mexico, who beat them 7-0 in 1975.
