Player to watch: Keylor Navas

Keylor Navas is a man who needs no introduction. The PSG star has been ever present for both team and country in recent years and we are sure that he will do well on the 24th of March against Honduras as well.

PSG star vital for Costa Rica

Shot-stopping legend Navas is close to the end of his professional career, but we are sure that he has a few more good games ahead of him. Coach Alfaro would be a fool to bench him in this crucial game against Honduras.
