San Jose, July 5: The Costa Rican Football Federation (Fedefutbol) has announced it will not extend the contract of national team manager Oscar Ramirez after disappointing results at the 2018 Russia World Cup.
Contrary to the team’s success four years ago in Brazil, Costa Rica were beaten twice (by Serbia and Brazil) and drew against Switzerland in Russia. The team did not advance to the knockout stages of the competition.
Prior to the poor results, Fedefutbol president Rodolfo Villalobos said that Ramirez’s contract ended with the last game of the competition and decision was made that the manager would not continue. IANS
