Before entering the 2022 World Cup, Spain is going through a rather turbulent period, particularly following the choices of coach Luis Enrique who overlooked players like Sergio Ramos, David De Gea and Thiago Alcantara. For his part, the former FC Barcelona coach does not seem disturbed and declared that he could not doubt him because he was the “best coach in the world”. On the ground, La Roja won in the middle of last week against Jordan in a preparation match for the World Cup (3-1) to reassure themselves before starting the competition on Wednesday.
Opposite, Costa Rica is 31st in the FIFA rankings but is starting to get used to participating in the World Cups. Indeed, Los Ticos will play their third World Cup in a row. And they really never looked pale, especially in 2014 when they reached the quarter-finals by coming out of the group of death with England, Italy and Uruguay. In contrast, in 2018, the Costa Ricans only took one point from a group made up of Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia.
