PETERSBURG, Russia – Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who plays for Real Madrid, is a fan favorite at the World Cup, drawing hundreds of people to his team’s first practice on Wednesday at the Olimpiyets, a small soccer complex in the town of Pavlovsk, located south of St. Petersburg.

Fans applauded when the 31-year-old Navas and his teammates took the field for warm-ups, calmed down and then got excited again when their soccer hero went into action, making some impressive stops.

“He’s my favorite player, I also want to be a goalkeeper,” a 9-year-old boy who stood out in his fervor for Navas told EFE.
