The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The elected president of Costa Rica, Luis Guillermo Solis ruled that he would not be in attendance at Brazil World Cup 2014 which will start in June, but predicted that the national team will make history in the tournament.
“I have decided not to attend the World Brazil 2014 because my work and the government team is here in the streets and with the people of Costa Rica,” said Solis through social networks, who will assume the presidency of his country on May 8 .
Local media reported days ago that the Costa Rican Football Federation extended an invitation to the president-elect for the World Cup.
Although he will not go to Brazil, Solis said he will be “just one of the four million voices to support La Sele with all the enthusiasm and strength.”
Costa Rica, directed by Colombian coach Jorge Luis Pinto, is in Group D of the World with Uruguay, England and Italy, which is Costa Rica’s biggest competitor.
Costa Rica has attended three World Cups: Italy 1990, South Korea and Japan 2002 and Germany 2010, and only the first of them managed to overcome the group. (ACAN-EFE).
