Costa Rica has an experienced squad currently with veterans from the 2014 edition including Keylor Navas, Bryan Ruiz, and Joel Campbell leading the lineup for the Central American team.
New Zealand have several players playing for European clubs in their rankings but the lack of experience and quality of the squad is causing serious problems for Costa Rica. Most likely, the game will end in a narrow victory for Los Seles.
