Costa Rica discards friendly with Argentina because it is out of planning
"Despite the invitation generated by the Argentine Football Association (AFA) on Thursday of the previous week to hold a friendly match on May 29, 2018, it will not be possible to do so," said a statement from Fedefútbol.

The Costa Rican Federation thanked Argentina for taking Costa Rica into account, but indicated that after an analysis with the coaching staff it was concluded that there is already planning for the World Cup and that commitment would break it.

"Since December the planning has been elaborated, the coaching staff approved the friendlies and for that date there is no certainty that we can count on the complete team," said the president of Fedefútbol, ​​Rodolfo Villalobos.

The planning of Costa Rica includes a home match against Northern Ireland on June 3, and then visits to England, on June 7, and Belgium, on the 11th, before the debut in Russia against Serbia on June 17. .

Last month the Ticos beat Scotland 1-0 in Glasgow, and fell by the same scoreboard against Tunisia in the French city of Nice, in the first two commitments to prepare for the World Cup.

Costa Rica is located in Group E of Russia 2018 together with Brazil, Serbia and Switzerland. EFE
