Costa Rica in the 2006 World Cup

Federación Costarricense de Fútbol.
Group A

Germany vs Costa Rica in München:
Six goals in the opening game of the 2006 World Cup Finals, and not all of them by Germany; what more can you ask for?

Ecuador vs Costa Rica in Hamburg:
This second defeat means Costa Rica and Poland will have nothing left to play for; the 2006 World Cup is over for both of them

Costa Rica vs Poland in Hannover:
Only pride to play for in this game, as Germany and Ecuador had already qualified from Group A. Costa Rica's pride was hurt badly, as the flew home without a point from their 2006 World Cup Finals campaign.

Knockout Stage

Costa Rica failed to qualify for the Second Round.
