The Ticos narrowly missed out on an automatic qualifier as they finished behind the USA on goal difference.

But Costa Rica knows what it takes to earn a spot in football’s biggest competition, having competed in four of the last five World Cups.

However, New Zealand will be keen to follow in the footsteps of neighbors Australia, who triumphed over a Latin American side at the same venue the night before.

The Australians won a penalty shoot-out against Peru after coming on as a substitute in the 119th minute against dancing goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne.
