Costa Rica’s Solís celebrates historic win

June 20, 2014

President Luis Guillermo Solís predicted the final score of the World Cup match between Costa Rica and Italy.

In a tweet sent minutes before the Friday morning match, Solís asked Ticos to send their predictions for the match. Then he accurately predicted a Costa Rica victory 1-0 over four-time champions Italy.

Solís watched the game with staff and family members at the Casa Presidencial, in the southeastern San José district of Zapote.

After Costa Rica won, Solís invited Ticos to join him in a celebration at the La Hispanidad roundabout, a traditional point of celebration for residents of the capital.

“I told you, 1-0” the president tweeted after the game.

Solís walked from Casa Presidencial to the roundabout and joined thousands of Ticos in a massive celebration that extended into the afternoon.
