Saborio Starts for Costa Rica
Real Salt Lake forward Alvaro Saborio started and played 82 minutes
for the Costa Rican National Team in a 0-2 defeat to Paraguay in an
international friendly this evening in the Paraguayan capital of
Asuncion. Paraguay, a quarter-finalist in this summer’s FIFA World Cup
in South Africa, used an early goal from Enrique Vera eight minutes in
and a 73rd minute tally from Cristian Rivera to push past the “Ticos.”
The start for Saborio marked his 56th cap for Costa Rica (22 goals).
