The squad includes midfield fixtures Walter Centeno and Celso Borges, startlet striker Bryan Ruiz, and New York Red Bulls defender Carlos Johnson.

After six of 10 qualifying games in the North and Central America and Caribbean region, Costa Rica leads the group with 12 points followed by the United States and Honduras (10), Mexico (9) and El Salvador and Trinidad and Tobago (5). The top three teams advance automatically to next year's World Cup in South Africa. The No. 4 team faces a playoff with the No. 5 from South America for another berth. Costa Rica plays at home against Mexico on Sept. 5, and goes to El Salvador on Sept. 9. It is at home against Trinidad and Tobago on Oct. 10 and plays at the United States on Oct. 14.
