Stuart Dallas played all 90 minutes of Northern Ireland’s 3-0 loss to Costa Rica in San José. While the Ticos are looking towards the World Cup, this is the last time that Northern Ireland will play together as a group until September.

Costa Rica will face off against England at Elland Road on Thursday, so Leeds fans will have a chance to see the Ticos up close before both squads head off for the World Cup in Russia later this month.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell was named to the bench for this friendly, but did not get into the match.
