Venezuela vs Costa Rica history

The only previous meeting between these two teams was a friendly match played in 2014. On that occasion, the Venezuelans won 1-0 against the Costa Ricans, so this will be the first time they meet in the Esperanzas de Toulon Tournament.
6:45 AM4 months ago

Costa Rica

The Costa Rican national team will have a challenge that can be both complex and great to accept. Having to play in the same group against the last two finalists of the competition, plus a team like Saudi Arabia, which is slowly gaining recognition, leaves as a task to demand 100% to try to give a blow that will put the Costa Ricans in the most outstanding level for the next competitions.

6:40 AM4 months ago


The Venezuelan national team is preparing to fight again in this competition. It is worth remembering that the Venezuelan national team has just finished runner-up in this competition and will be looking not only for a similar performance, but also for the possibility of becoming champions.
