Costa Rica held steady at 34th in the latest FIFA World Rankings released Thursday. Costa Rica's three opponents, in a ferocious Group D, are now all ranked within the top 11. Costa Rica, however, is no longer the highest ranked team in Central America after Honduras (32nd) jumped the Ticos in the rankings.
Costa Rica's national team revealed Tuesday one last friendly before the World Cup, and then revealed that the previous revelation was incorrect. La Sele will play Ireland, not Northern Ireland, just southwest of Boston on June 7.
