Navas is now the World Cup’s most wanted goalie. The Spanish club Levante will probably be unable to keep their star whose contract runs out in one year.

At 27, Navas is one of the key players at the forefront of the Ticos surprising success in the World Cup so far. Born in San Isidro (Perez Zeledon), Costa Rica, he got his big break when he left Saprissa to join Albacete. After just one appearance against Athletic Bilbao, he eventually joined Levante on a permanent basis for US$200.000.

Standing at 6ft with a slim frame, Navas is one of the smallest goalkeepers around, but he makes his presence felt in the penalty area. An agile, energetic stopper, Navas loves nothing more than a fingertip save for the cameras.
