Costa Rica’s national team, “La Selección”, was up against the wall, they needed a win to keep the hope alive of a berth in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The game, for the most part, was uneventful, both teams losing many opportunities to score, in particular for Honduras as Keylor Navas shined in the Tico net, following a recovery from an injury that kept him out the last game.
