Costa Rica continue their preparation for the CONCACAF Gold Cup with a friendly against Ecuador this week.
Their final match before the tournament begins, Costa Rica didn’t have the best of starts to their warm up fixtures, losing 0-1 to Guatemala last week. But with this being Costa Rica’s final game before they open their Gold Cup campaign against Panama on June 26th, you can expect the Central American nation to step things up.
It’s a free summer for South American nations with regards to competitive football, so Ecuador have used the current international break for two friendlies. The first saw them beat fellow South American side Bolivia 1-0 and their players will go on their holidays after taking on Costa Rica.
