Costa Rica senior national team arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston in early afternoon expecting a tough clash against Jamaica in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualification series at the National Stadium, tomorrow.
The game time is 7 p.m.
The Costa Ricans are sitting pretty, on top in the Hexagonal phase, and looking to seal a spot in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil with a victory against Jamaica who are rooted at the cellar in the battle.
"Yes, we are in a great position, trying to secure a spot in the World Cup as soon as possible.
We know that it is difficult to win here," Paulo Wanchope, Costa Rica assistant coach told journalist upon the team's arrival.
"It is difficult to play against a team that is down.
They have a new coach [Winfried Schafer], so we have to be careful.
We have to be patient.
We are nearly there and have to think about what we need to do in the game," Wanchope added.
