Costa Rica qualified for the World Cup in Qatar on Tuesday. It settled in a mutual duel with New Zealand and is the very last country in the final tournament. With this, all 32 spots are forgiven.
A goal by Joel Campbell after three minutes of play was enough for the victory and thus the World Cup ticket. Costa Rica reports to the World Cup in Group E, the ‘Pool of Death’ that also includes Spain, Japan and Germany.
Costa Rica also entered the World Cup in 2018 and 2014. At the World Cup in Brazil, it was eliminated in the quarter-finals by the Dutch national team, who was allowed to thank goldfinals Tim Krul in the penalty kicking series. Costa Rica was also present in 2002 and 2006, but was missing in 2010 (South Africa).
Wales and Australia also qualified for the World Cup in Qatar this month.
