Costa Rica vs Northern Ireland
NIR vs CRC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Costa Rica start their preparations for the World Cup with a hosting of British team Northern Ireland at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica.
The team from Central America has been awful in the last few games and would need a miracle to emulate their performance in Brazil, four years ago. They have lost four times in the last five game with the 1-0 loss against Tunisia once again highlighted their inability to find the back of the net. The Los Ticos play England after this game and round off their world cup preparations with a tough game against the supremely talented Belgium.
Can Costa Rica provide a threat in the Group Stage?
Northern Ireland, on the other hand, missed a flight to Russia following a playoff loss to Switzerland. Now the Greens turn their attention to UEFA Nations League and booking a place at the Euro 2020 remains the biggest priority for Michael O’Neill.

NIR vs CRC Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Suspension
Costa Rica vs Northern Ireland:
Costa Rica: Keylor Navas is back in contention as he returned to his country’s set-up after winning yet another Champions League title with Real Madrid.
Bryan Ruiz is Costa Rica’s best player by a mile and is expected to lead his country in Russia. However, Roy Miller, Osvaldo Rodriguez, and striker David Ramirez have been omitted by Oscar Ramirez from his World Cup squad and are not expected to feature in this match.
Northern Ireland: Just like Scotland, Northern Ireland have also flooded their squad with the youngbloods with five players – Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Lavery and Jordan Thompson – earning their first International cap in the last game against Panama.
Two other first-timers are Conor Hazard and Crusaders midfielder Gavin Whyte with the latter is being seen as a future superstar as even the former two-weight world champion boxer Carl Frampton is said to be a fan of Whyte.
We are expecting both these players to be given their International debut in this match. Gareth McAuley and Aaron Hughes, both 38, are expected to play at the heart of the defense in this match.
