In this article, we have discussed Costa Rica’s FIFA World Cup Fixture, when the matches will be and where the match will be.

Costa Rica grabbed the last spot to Qatar in the FIFA World Cup 2022 with a 1-0 goal win over New Zealand in the qualifying playoff on June 14. It will be the third straight World Cup appearance for Los Ticos. Here we have the FIFA World Cup 2022 fixtures for Costa Rica, match schedules, and venues.

Costa Rica had a Cinderella run in Brazil’s FIFA World Cup 2014. They finished as the group winners ahead of Uruguay, Italy, and England to reach the Round of 16. They beat Greece and lost to the Netherlands in the quarter-finals on penalties. However, in Russia, Keylor Navas and Co couldn’t pass the Group Stage in 2018.
