At Casa Presidencial, the President, staff and family members watched and reacted to the game, followed up by a victory celeberation in La Fuente de Hispanidad, walking around with the thousands of Costa Ricans that took part in the massive party that went well into the afternoon, under a hot and sunny sky. No rain fell on San José Friday afternoon!

“Se lo dije (I told you)”, was the presidential tweet following the game.

Presidential I told you so.
