SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - May 7, 2014 - PRLog -- We’re at the point where we can start counting down to World Cup Brazil in weeks, not months. Days, really, if you want to get technical. And that means you’re probably trying to figure out who the hell to drop your coin on.

Today, we’re looking at Costa Rica, one of the better teams from the CONCACAF region. The Costa Rica national football team is nicknamed La Sele or Los Ticos. They are the most successful team in Central America having qualified to four World Cups, including reaching the last sixteen on their debut in Italy 1990

Before you place your bets at one of the sponsor sites listed at, here’s what you need to know.

• Costa Rica was not one of the seeds when the World Cup draw was made a few months back. They are ranked 34th.
• They find themselves in one of the toughest groups with Uruguay, England and Italy.
• The United States, Costa Rica, and Honduras finished in the top three places and qualified directly for the 2014 World Cup.
• They were the CONCACAF Gold Cup Winners (3): 1963, 1969, 1989

All eyes will be on Bryan Ruiz, arguable considered Costa Rica’s top playmaker. I find his wide forward position and style of play massively important for ‘Los Ticos’ if they are to pull off a shock. Bryan Ruiz has 61 caps for Costa Rica, with 12 goals.

At we review all of the high-end sportsbooks. Football fans will find this especially useful given the crowded sports betting online marketplace, which seems to be getting even more confusing in 2014.

Noted Scott Smith, Brazilbet2014 co-founder, “It can be hard to navigate all the sports betting opportunities, especially with new sports betting sites popping up all the time. We’ve come across a lot of sportsbooks and have reviewed them in depth. Many are actually really sketchy, so we’ve done our due diligence to make sure sports fans are betting safe. The sportsbooks that we’ve reviewed are all legendary sites with decades—and sometimes centuries—of book making experience.”

The online betting information portal will find helpful information for all current football matches. What’s more, all negotiated sportsbook bonuses apply to bets made before the 2014 World Cup.
