Costa Rican U21 women’s soccer team makes history

July 28, 2018

The Costa Rican Under-21 Women’s National Soccer Team is going for gold.

La Sele made history by reaching its first final in the Central American and Caribbean Games, a multi-youth tournament, when it defeated Trinidad and Tobago 2-0 in Barranquilla, Colombia, on Friday. The Costa Rican women, coached by Amelia Valverde, dominated the field, and star Gloriana Villalobos put her skills on full display as she dribbled past defenders.

Villalobos opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a penalty, and 16-year-old María Paula Porras added the second in extra time.

La Sele will now play Mexico on Monday at 6 pm. Should they emerge victorious, they could earn Costa Rica’s first gold medal in these games.
