The Costa Rica national football team, nicknamed Los Ticos, is the national team of Costa Rica and is controlled by the Federación Costarricense de Fútbol. They made three World Cups, including an improbable run to the 1990 World Cup second round under coach Bora Milutinovic, and a solid showing in the 2002 World Cup in which they had the misfortune to be seeded in group play with eventual champions Brazil and third-place finishing Turkey. Recently Los Ticos qualified to the 2006 Germany World Cup.

Costa Rica's best finish in the CONCACAF Gold Cup was second in 2002. They won the UNCAF Nations Cup five times. Recently, Costa Rica have been invited to participate in three Copa Américas, making the quarterfinals on their last two visits.
