No Navas as Costa Rica names roster for Peru friendly

May 22, 2019

The Costa Rican soccer federation on Wednesday revealed its roster for an upcoming friendly against Peru.

The list includes Álvaro Saborío and Christian Bolaños, two veterans making their returns to the national team. Herediano’s Luis Díaz received his first summon to La Sele.

Keylor Navas is the most notable absence from the 23-player list. Manager Gustavo Matosas explained in a press conference that the decision was made after a discussion with the star goalkeeper, who is “in a complicated situation” at Real Madrid and “wouldn’t have his full concentration” on the national team.

Navas reportedly isn’t in the Spanish club’s plans for the upcoming season.

La Sele will begin training May 27 prior to their June 5 matchup against Peru in Lima.

The game will serve as a Gold Cup warmup for Costa Rica, which begins the tournament against Nicaragua on June 16.
